Victorious Living Bible Institute is a Certified Training Center for the National Association of Christian Counselors, www.nacconline.org, based in Houston, Texas, offering professional credentials to believers who feel the call of God to counsel. 

Victorious Living Bible Institute partners with the National Association of Christian Counselors. NACC is a Christian ministry established in 2008 to train Biblical counselors and teachers to assist local churches and to help meet related needs. 

The main purpose of NACC is to provide adequate training for local Pastors and Christians who feel the call of God to counsel. Our goal is to offer counseling to all persons in need of help and training for those who desire to help others. The student will receive the ability to understand themselves, their loved ones, friends, and co-workers. Our training will also provide the student with the essential experiential learning necessary for working in the field of Christian counseling.

"NACC is a Christian service organization committed to the Lord Jesus Christ and believes that unless counseling is founded upon and directed by the Word of God, it is in vain. We look forward to partnering with you on your journey to becoming a counselor!" (Dr. Tony Lewis, NACC)

*  This program is not to be confused with the NACC Pastoral Counseling Certification Program

 

NACC Certification is NOT to be confused with state licensing. Most states have laws governing the practice of general counseling. These laws vary from state to state. The purpose of state regulatory laws is to protect the public and ensure professionalism within the counseling profession. NACC strives to attain the same goals, and more. As Christians, we know that counseling with the Word of God is the only answer for a dying world. Therefore, we must purpose to operate within the legal guidelines set forth by state regulations.The state recognizes that counseling is one of the responsibilities of the local church. For this reason, the state does not interfere with the ministry of counseling, as long as counseling is provided under the following conditions:

1. That the counseling service is provided through a legally organized/operated local church or a nationally recognized denomination.

2. That the counselor is trained and commissioned by the legally recognized organization.

Course Facilitator: Dr. Renae Sellers.
