ABC Advanced Degree Certification
The ABC Advanced Degree credential is granted when individuals complete a Masters or Doctorate program in Biblical Counseling from an ABC approved seminary or Bible College. (see list below)
The ABC Advanced Degree certification is designed to acknowledge advanced biblical training received by ABC certified counselors and maintain a healthy affiliation to other organizations doing excellent work in the area of biblical counseling.
An ABC affiliate is a seminary or university approved by the Association of Biblical Counselors that qualifies candidates for ABC Advanced Degree certification. Affiliates may or may not officially endorse the ministry of the Association of Biblical Counselors.
If you’d like your seminary to become an affiliate of ABC’s so your students can be approved for our Advanced Degree certification, you can fill out the application here.
