Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling
Experienced. Flexible. Innovative.

The Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling degree evolved based on years of practical counseling ministry experience by members and staff of Faith Church. Our faculty includes some of the best professors in their respective specialties from all over the country. Our distinctive program - unique among other seminaries - combines this expertise and academics to teach you to be a leader in counseling ministry.

While this training is intensely practical and effective, the MABC program is not designed to lead students toward a counseling licensure within their state.

Faith Bible Seminary is accredited by The Association for Biblical Higher Education.

"I chose FBS because I wanted to make sure that my preaching was reaching the heart of people… I’m hoping that my preaching ministry will be enhanced by this degree. We also use counseling as an outreach to the community and having a master’s degree even as a pastor and as a church exemplifies that we’re serious, that we have studied hard, and that we can contribute to your life, so I’m hoping that as people come in, they find that this master's degree has helped that."
- Shawn Otto, 2017 MABC Graduate

Counseling Training Impact

"The decision to pursue a Master's in my 50's was really God-led, having discovered counseling in a very personal way through the struggles of our daughter. Through God's providence she was directed to Vision of Hope. It was there through the loving application of God's Word that she was transformed. And not only did this change her life, but it also changed me." Stacey Preuss Current MABC Student
