Master of Divinity in Pastoral Counseling


People are hurting, and they often turn to their pastor to seek spiritual guidance and help. Many of our students have been called by God to shepherd the body of Christ in ways that bring healing and restoration. The M.Div. with the pastoral counseling concentration provides both a deep theological foundation and skills for dealing with hurting people.

The Master of Divinity in Pastoral Counseling is designed for those who desire to be involved primarily in a counseling ministry, but who also want a solid biblical and theological foundation upon which to build their perspectives and practices of counseling. The counseling courses in this degree are provided by the faculty in the Graduate Department of Counseling at Grace.

All five concentrations have a strong component of practical field experience: a six-hour apprenticeship is required for the M.Div. in Pastoral Counseling, which is built into the requirements.
