Cape Coral, FL (PRWEB) August 10, 2006
PCCCA, The Professional Christian Coaching and Counseling Academy (http://www.pccca.org) is pleased to announce that they were awarded the first ever Christian Coaching School accreditation, naming them a "Christian Coaching School of Excellence" on July 14, 2006.
The accrediting and endorsing organization is CCSA/UACCCI, Christian Coaching School Accreditation, a division of United Association of Christian Chaplains and Counselors, International. (Visit their new website at http://www.uaccci.org)
UACCCI has been credentialing and providing accountability for Christian ministries, educational institutions, and chaplains worldwide since 1975 and found PCCCA to be the first Christian Coaching School worthy of their full accreditation and endorsement. With over 30 years of experience, UACCCI has been providing credentials and accountability since before life coaching was a recognized profession.
Dr. Martin W. Wisor, Ph.D., D.D., Founder/CEO of UACCCI said, "The Professional Accreditation Endorsement Board for The United Association of Christian Chaplains and Counselors International, has granted Full Endorsement and Accreditation, "Christian Coaching School of Excellence" to The Professional Christian Coaching and Counseling Academy."
"After complete examination of Educational, Training facilitators and Ministerial Life Coaching content," said Dr. Wisor, "the Official Board unanimously awarded this esteemed level of Full Accreditation - Clinical Member."
"It is with great pleasure that Dr. Bush and I have joined hands to offer this Professional Level to Christian Life Coaching," Dr. Wisor said. "With the tremendous growth and need for a balanced approach, he sees a very bright future for this type of training and outreach. Today with the ability of Christian life coaches and lay counselors to receive the training PCCCA offers, they can work to strengthen Marriages, Families and heal areas of hurts on the local, national and international level of Ministry."
"We are very honored by this accreditation," said Rev. Dr. Leelo-Dianne Bush, President and Founder of PCCCA. Christian Coaching School Accreditation has been needed for some time to set the standards for this belief-centered arm of coaching. "Until now, only secular / new age coaching accreditation was available and it was really not suitable for us, as a Christian faith-based academy, to come under the authority of a secular / new age organization," Dr. Bush explained.
"Our next step," said Dr. Bush, "will be to work closely with UACCCI officials in coordinating and refining the process whereby other legitimate Christian life coach training schools can become accredited as well. It is important to ensure that each school maintains the integrity, faith orientation and rigorous standards leading to professional excellence among the leadership, trainers, staff and students."
