Christian Counseling & Training Center, Inc. (CCTC) is an inter-denominational, non-profit ministry dedicated to bringing honor and glory to God by serving the Body of Christ and assisting local churches. CCTC use Biblical principles to teach, train, and counsel. CCTC encourages people to use Scripture to resolve personal and inter-personal problems and to be available to help others to apply these truths in their lives.

We believe God's Word has relevant answers to the issues we face in daily living. We study the character of God, His holiness, His grace, and purpose for life. As we examine intimate relationships, we look at the emotions of anger, fear, and guilt within the context of the Biblical concept of love. We evaluate actions and the motives behind those actions and explore how change takes place.

Discipleship Training Program (DTP)

This program is a one year program designed to point students in the direction of a caring GOD who always shows us more grace and mercy than we deserve.  The student will gain a Biblical world view and a better understanding of his/her relationship and place in God's kingdom well as a better understanding of why we "do what we don't wish to do". Students will learn the dynamics of problems and Biblical responses to those issues.

There are three courses in this program: Biblical Problem Solving, Building Biblical Relationships, and Student of Scripture for Life. Courses build upon each other and should be taken in sequence.  The CCTC courses are eight weeks and include lecture, syllabus, a supplement book, and assignments. Student must submit assignments to an assigned Grader. For course description click name.
