God never meant for Christians to live alone. Through the church on earth, therefore, he created a place where Christians could gather for corporate worship, accountability, fellowship, instruction, and godly exhortation. The fullest expression of our faith cannot occur apart from loving communion with other believers in a local church.
Yet because Christians are often scared to reveal their problems to people they know, they commonly seek out counselors who work in private practices outside of their church. Now, many of these counselors are doing good work, and there certainly is a role for private practice counseling. Yet there are distinct advantages to doing specialized counseling in the context of one’s local church.

This class is an approved Anger Management Specialist-I Certification training and is recognized nationally. The class in particular is built to equip those in ministry (both pastors and ministry leaders at large) for how to deal with and better understand church members and persons they minister to. Paul in Ephesians 4:26 instructs: “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.” Certification in anger management will enable pastors and ministry leaders to teach those in their care how to apply this verse to their life and bring peace to their relationships with others and with God.
