The program is delivered in a blended format, combining the convenience of online learning, without sacrificing important face-to-face interactions gained from classroom instruction. Classes are typically held in the evenings and on Saturdays. For each class you take, you can expect to come to campus about once a month while earning your degree from an accredited Bible college. Our counseling program is founded on TRUST:
“Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” – 1 Corinthians 10:31

“I chose LBC | Capital because of its Christian worldview and its emphasis on training counselors in the integration of the Christian faith with evidence-based secular counseling approaches. The counseling program challenged me to grow as a Christian and to become a sharper instrument of change and transformation for God’s use.”
