Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling (MABC) Program

I am pleased to announce that PRTS has just launched our Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling (MABC) program. We have anticipated this program for some time, recognizing the great need there is in the church for competent biblical counselors. Everywhere I go there are churches who are asking for help in this area and our own graduates repeatedly have sought after this as well. We have started to accept applications for enrollment beginning in the Fall of 2022.Dr. Mark Kelderman, who recently graduated with a Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Counseling, is heading up this program. He will teach several of the foundational courses along with several well qualified adjunct faculty who will teach various intensive courses in their specialized areas of expertise.

Dr. Kelderman has walked alongside many counselees during his nearly 25 years of ministry and grasps a proper balance of how to practice biblical counseling in light of our secular counseling culture. It is our hope that we will be able to train men and women who will be fit instruments of blessing to people within and outside of the church, to both believers and unbelievers.

The program will take two years to complete and will include a number of hands-on counseling situations and discussion components that will form a collaborative setting of training. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to Dr. Kelderman.
