College of Counseling & Healthcare University of the Nations

The Collegeof Counseling and Health Care aims to train and mobilize followers of Christ as agents of God’s healing in areas of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and relational health. An important focus of our graduates is the poor and needy. Students learn an integrated biblical model of ministry that is easily adaptable to different cultural and social settings, providing a powerful entry into the lives of individuals and families.

Our training programmes equip students in areas of biblical counseling and primary health care with ministry impacting individuals, families, communities and nations.

Biblical counseling helps people encounter God to receive revelation, healing, grace and spiritual authority. Our training programmes equip counselors to help others grow in personal and relational wholeness, dealing with poor personal choices, family issues, unresolved conflict, compulsive behaviors, and the wounds of injustice. Focused schools and seminars address issues relating to working with families, children and addictive behaviors.

Primary health care: Improved access to basic health care is a nearly universally felt need. Our health care training focuses on helping families and communities prevent and treat diseases and improve their water, nutrition and birth practice at the household level. Students learn skills in assessment, treatment, prevention, and education. Focused schools and seminars address working in areas of maternal health, community health development, malaria prevention and treatment, etc.

The sphere of society which is central to the College is that of family. The disciplines of counseling and health care minister to the family’s internal and external needs, equipping healthy and holy families as a basic building block for discipling the nations. Where possible, our desire is that health care and counseling work in an integrated way, recognizing that the health of the heart must be addressed before we also see lasting change in health of the body.

Directed Readings, Seminars (0-9)

Total Credits for Bachelor of Arts Degree 144

Three related courses that form a coherent field of study may be selected by the student (in consultation with an Academic Advisor) to complete the requirements of the B.A. degree. One of these courses must be a field assignment or practicum. If two of the courses are in a field different from counseling (such as, the Arts) a 2-credit Directed Studies course (CNH 391) in the form of an integrative paper will be required to relate the field of study to counseling. Note that in this case, the B.A. degree could require 146 hours.

Experience in counseling should form an integral part of the B.A. degree in addition to academic study. Usually this will be fulfilled through the field assignment aspect of the training (a degree student needs a minimum of 24 credits of practical counseling application), but in cases where it is not, students may be asked to work on staff of a counseling ministry for a three-month period.
