The Associate of Arts - (Christian Counseling) degree requires a total of 60 credits of work. This is generally the first level of higher education after high school, and because of the large number of credits required, tends to provide a broad-based foundation in a number of subjects.


At VBS, after you take Christian Counseling,  you will be allowed to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in choosing the courses you take for your degree since He knows better than we do what knowledge and skills you will need to fulfill the plans He has for you. Therefore, you may find that you select courses from nearly every concentration, with one area, in particular, having your strongest interest and therefore drawing the most courses from it.


You may bring in up to 30 credits toward this degree through transcripts from other schools or documented life experience.

The program is very accessible to both full-time pastors, working pastors, layman, etc.  with all courses being available through the VBS  Education Formats.
