HOW WAS THIS COURSE CREATED?
#1 Prayer and listening to God's direction.
#2 We offered prospective students the opportunity to help us design this program for you by responding to a survey where hundreds of you told us what you want and need in a Christian counseling program. We included factors such as training methods, program features, value / benefits options, and an opportunity to tell us which topics will be most helpful to you.
The result is the program that many of you helped to design so that you could provide counseling excellence for those who seek your assistance. It is our constant prayer that you achieve everything God has for you to do and it is our honor to support you with training to make your dreams and visions possible.

* ATTENTION: TEXAS (US) Christian Counseling Students & Grads
Here is a link to the statutes in the Texas state code that permits you to practice. Because this has been difficult to find, we are posting it here for your convenience, to make sure you are in compliance.
Excluded from State Licensing in Texas
Sec. 503.054. COUNSELING BY OTHER LICENSED OR CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL OR BY RELIGIOUS PRACTITIONER. This chapter does not apply to an activity or service of any of the following persons performing counseling consistent with the law of this state, the person's training, and any code of ethics of the person's profession if the person does not represent the person by any title or description as described by the definition of "licensed professional counselor" in Section 503.002: (1) a member of another profession licensed or certified by this state, including: … (2) a recognized religious practitioner, including a Christian Science practitioner recognized by the Church of Christ Scientist as registered and published in the Christian Science Journal.

* ATTENTION: GEORGIA (US) Christian Counseling Students & Grads
Here is a link to the statutes in the Georgia state code that permit you to practice. Because this has for years been so difficult to find, we are posting it here for your convenience, to make sure you are in compliance. See the listed exclusions pertaining to faith: #9, #10 and #11. If the link does not work in your browser, you can also copy and paste this link to that page: http://statutes.laws.com/georgia/title-43/chapter-10a/43-10a-7
Most state codes are easy to find. To research your state's statutes regarding faith-based counseling services, visit your favorite search engine (ie. Google, Yahoo, Ask.com, etc.) and use keywords: your state name, the word counselor and make sure you use the either the word exclusion or exception.
This is not a licensing course
and PCCCA is not a counselor licensing provider.
Only a governmental authority can license counselors to practice in a state or geographic area.
If becoming licensed is your interest, please seek information from your local professional regulation agency.
NOTE: You may find a random school or organization that states they "license" Christian Counselors but any such promise and those "licensed" are at risk of being investigated due to the deliberate confusion it causes for the counseling profession and prospective clients.
