If those points describe you, congratulations—you’re in the right place!
My name is Jeff Christianson. I’m your Dean of Biblical Counseling!
I train, coach and certify Biblical Counselors like you in Christian counseling certification, so you can grow in your counseling ministry, equipping you to impact others with the life-changing, life-giving Word of God.
I’m also the Dean of Biblical Counseling with Calvary Chapel University, where we offer degree programs in counseling and theology.
Most importantly, I’m a husband to Jennifer and father to Andrew, Jeremiah, Ruth and Sarah, my sweet little family. We live and serve the Lord in the Colorado Rockies.
From time to time, I publish a new podcast episode with my wife as a special guest. If this is your first time here, I’d recommend checking out the podcast!
I’d love to connect and get to know you and your ministry. There are several ways to start:
1. Social Media.
2. Take an Online Course.
3. Enroll in my Mentorship Program.
Here's where I am at in ministry. Yes, I am the pastor of some remarkable folks in a rural Colorado mountain town. Because we are small, I am privileged to be co-vocational (versus bi-vocational). This means that I subsidize our family income with tuition-based courses. The flock receives free tuition, my online students generously offer a suggested donation. This online ministry is not the local church, it is a tuition-based training center (maybe similar to what we call a parachurch). Simply stated, I understand that this is unconventional for the typical pastor.
Yes, this is Ministry School - Online! I create online courses for personal enrichment and beyond.
I am offering a ton of free content (and plan on offering much, much more). However, there are students that want training and certification. It is my desire to earn my family income as an online teacher to subsidize the church. I have this crazy goal of contributing 50% of church contributions to the mission field. That requires me to earn a living outside of the church with these tuition-based Signature Courses. Although my mini courses will always be free, some students want in-depth discipleship, coaching, and certification. I hope that make sense! Thanks for asking and enrolling in my online courses 🙂
I know, right? Here's the deal. People work with people. Students want to work directly with their teacher verses an organization or "brand" with a nice logo. My students are looking for a coach or mentor with the relaxed and casual style of relationship. Therefore, the Lord gave me this idea of being myself - simply Jeff Christianson.
