In the 21st century there exists an eagerness within local churches to integrate orthodox theology with therapeutic psychology, in order to minister more effectively to the complex needs of individuals, couples, and families.
There is broad agreement that growing more holy in Christ involves growing psychologically as well as spiritually. Growth tools like the Self Compass help people develop Christlike personalities and relationships. Increasingly, seminaries are offering programs that combine psychology with sound Christian doctrine.
In light of the many inquiries we receive about seminary programs that provide Masters Degrees in Christian Counseling and Marriage & Family Therapy, we have developed internet links where some of these programs may be found, as well as national associations for Christian caregivers.
It is gratifying to know that many professors teaching in these counseling programs are utilizing Compass Therapy and the Self Compass in their core curriculum, equipping a new generation of pastors and therapists for anointed service in the church and in the world.
