This certification is for ordained pastors or licenced ministers who wish to become more effective as counselors in their current job or serve as a church staff counselor. Please note that for this certification you must be an ordained or licensed pastor and that because of this you may be able to obtain counseling liability insurance as a pastoral counselor which may make it possible for you to charge fees for your counseling without a degree.
