The mission of the department is to prepare professional Christian counsellors to operate both in Christian and non-Christian communities. The department is committed to help students develop the knowledge, values, and necessary competencies for an effective professional Christian counselling ministry. More and more we are seeing that people are unable to deal with the challenges, misfortunes, and uncertainties of life. Consequently, they come to counselling for guidance and help. The learning opportunities offered by our department give students the chance to acquire the tools and theoretical understanding that permit them to bring healing and meaning to the lives of hurting people.
