Do you feel you have a calling on your life to become a Christian Counselor? Mercy Christian Counseling can help equip you to answer God's call through our sister organization, Mercy Christian Counseling Institute (MCCI). MCCI programs are designed to equip you with the specific knowledge and credentials to answer your calling. We offer distance learning only via hard-copy textbooks or online options. Both options are self-paced, self-study. But don't worry! You won't be alone in your journey! Your clinical supervisor, Dr. Susan Haberkorn, will be with you every step of the way to answer questions and provide practical guidance as you work through your program. We can even meet via secure online video.

NCCA's Proprietary Temperament Therapy model provides unique insight into the workings of the human soul. It is based on the belief that every human is endowed with a specific temperament--by God--at the moment of conception. This God-given, inborn temperament determines how and why you view yourself, others, and situations the way you naturally do; and Temperament Therapy helps you guide your clients to understand the needs that drive their behavior, how to overcome weaknesses, and how to relate to others and situations in a Godly manner. Christian Counselor Training with MCCI gives YOU the tools (both clinical and Biblical) to effectively address a host of client challenges!

Mercy Christian Counseling Institute (MCCI) is a Certified Academic Institution (CAI) authorized by the National Christian Counselors Association (NCCA) to administer the certificate and degree programs of the NCCA. Our format follows the outline described in the NCCA Catalog.
