    Hello, my name is Irma Childress; I have previously resigned from working as a nurse and I am now studying Christian Counseling. I am enjoying the free courses that have been provided by Biola University Online. I would like to know the least expensive way to receive a certificate/degree in Christian Counseling from your Institution. I have starting viewing the course: Ethics at the Edge of Life, starting with the Beginning of Life Issues with Dr. Scott Rae. This course has given me a greater insight on how to handle myself when dealing with infertility in a marriage couple (s) life. As previously stated, I need information on the least expensive way in obtaining a certificate/degree in Christian Counseling. Sincerely and Appreciative!!! Irma Childress

    Hello, I work closely in the Flatirons Church of Colorado. I have had several tests, aptitude and other. I have an extreme connection to serve and counsel but financially do not have the funds for certification. Is it possible to get a certificate in Christian counseling very inexpensively so I can do more serving? I have a non- profit in which this certificate may be helpful. Thank you, Donna Harper

    Is it possible to send the courses to my email so I can open at home when I have internet? The work computer does not open this. I am constantly finding myself in positions of counseling in church but I need to be sure I am qualified in terms of delivery technique, even though I am using biblical truths. I am 54, perhaps too old to start an entire degree course. These studies will help me decide how best to further my knowledge. Thank you for serving God in this way.
