Deland, FL (PRWEB) March 31, 2011
Colorado Theological Seminary (CTS), a leader in credible, affordable and accessible Christian distance learning degree programs, is pleased to announce that its Clinical Pastoral Counseling courses are now available online. CTS is an independent, non-denominational online Christian theological seminary offering degree programs covering biblical studies, ministry, theology, church history, divinity, and Christian counseling.
Commitments to family, church and work often make it impossible for many people to attend seminary or bible college classes on a traditional campus. CTS makes it easy to earn a degree through its external degree programs, meaning no one has to let their God given dreams fall by the wayside.
The newly online Clinical Pastoral Counseling courses utilize a new back office protocol that will negate the need to have materials sent via mail, giving students full and immediate access to materials and grade results. Students living outside of the United States will have the added benefit of saving on the time and expense of shipping materials across borders and dealing with customs.
CTS is also unveiling its new Moodle Online Course Management System for its Doctor of Ministry and Doctor of Biblical Studies programs which, among other benefits, will make testing easier, with grades delivered to the student immediately.
Dr. Gary Tryzbiak, Th.D., Ph.D., Wheat Ridge, Colorado, advises prospective students seeking to serve in pastoral ministry as a minister, missionary, pastoral counselor, or as a Christian teacher not to be disheartened with the economy or abnormally high tuition costs. Even Christians who simply want to grow in grace and improve their understanding of Scripture can do so affordably and should consider Colorado Theological Seminary.
CTS utilizes tried and proven distance learning techniques, allowing anyone to complete their degree or further their theological education affordably and from the comfort of their home or office.
Colorado Theological Seminary is committed to educating and forming leaders for the church in a changing world - ordained or lay, men and women, from all Christian traditions. CTS seeks to fulfill its charge by offering 18 different distance learning degree programs. The seminary also offers six Certificate Programs that can be converted to credits toward an undergraduate degree. All ministry and biblical studies programs are also available individually as Personal Enrichment courses for individuals wanting to learn more about a particular topic.
Pastoral Degree Programs from CTS provide students with the skills necessary to engage in practical Christian ministry. The program of study will provide students with exposure to spiritual formation and the role and function of the church, present foundational practices of personal evangelism and making disciples, introduce techniques needed to study and teach the Bible, provide an awareness of and enthusiasm for the worldwide missionary enterprise of the church, and give students the opportunity to strengthen their ability to manage and communicate effectively.
Colorado Theological Seminary believes that counseling is in vain if it is not founded upon, and directed by, the Word of God. Those who are called to the Ministry of Counseling will find that CTS’s Christian Counseling Degree Programs provide a solid background in this area.
The main purpose of Colorado Theological Seminary is to provide quality training for pastors and mature Christians who feel God's call to counsel. CTS also makes available credentials that the community (Christian and non-Christian) will recognize. The training students receive provides a deep spiritual insight into understanding human behavior and relating to others. This knowledge is valuable in every area of life, including your ability to help those of His flock, who are hurting.
Colorado Theological Seminary makes available a host of student friendly offerings, such as:
Organizations that would like to offer student discounts to their constituents as part of their association benefits or affinity program may associate with CTS at no cost. For more information, visit http://www.seminary.me.
