MDiv in Biblical Counseling

Biblical Counseling

The concentration in Biblical Counseling provided by this track will prepare students for a wide variety of biblical guidance ministries in local churches.

Students completing the M.Div. in Biblical Counseling will be prepared to serve as a chaplain or on a local church staff with special responsibilities for counseling, pastoral care and family ministries.

The guiding foundation for Southeastern’s Biblical Counseling program is that the Holy Scriptures are the written Word of the Living God and are sufficient for understanding people as spiritual, moral, relational and psychological beings. God has provided all things necessary for life and godliness: His risen and reigning Son, our Lord Jesus Christ; His written Word, the Holy Bible; His indwelling Holy Spirit; and His churches, local communities of baptized believers committed to the historic Christian faith and living out their personal faith through deeds of love. Southeastern intends to equip men and women of God to become wise, merciful counselors, thoroughly and completely equipped to minister both God’s grace and truth.
