Christian Counselling

We work in partnership with New Zealand Biblical Counsellors Association (NZBCA). NZBCA is an association that supports biblical counsellors in New Zealand by providing initial training to anyone interested in counselling biblically.

They encourage their members to pursue formal training in Biblical Counselling. The NZBCA offer support through supervision and resources. They also provide continuing education to sharpen skills, knowledge, and personal growth.


A 1-year Certificate in Biblical Counselling is now available through us at Grace Theological College.
