Faith-Based Counseling

Welcome to the International Board of Faith-Based Counselors!  We are a body of Believers committed to the Lord Jesus Christ and the holistic counsel of the Holy Spirit according to Proverbs 8:14.  We believe that both the Bible and psychology play major roles in the successful healing and motivation of the soul of mankind.

A. Williams - Tulsa, OK

"I just wanted to share a quick testimony and thank LCU, Dr. Marcus Howard, and Dr. Angela Howard. I recently completed the Christian Counseling Certification Course. The course delivery was phenomenal. The biblical and psychological principles that were taught were very relevant, and easy to incorporate into my medical practice.  As a Nurse Practitioner, it has made a tremendous difference in the way I approach patient care.  I feel I am now a more effective health care provider, and because I took this course, my patients will have improved mental AND physical health outcomes. Again, thank you!"
