Winebrenner Theological Seminary  

The Master of Arts in Clinical Counseling degree seeks to prepare individuals to be effective counselors who integrate Christian values and beliefs into their work with clients from a multicultural and pluralistic society. Consistent with the mission of Winebrenner, students will incorporate the Christian principles of gaining knowledge, pursuing wholeness, and changing lives while also adhering to the counseling profession’s standards. The program is designed to equip men and women to work in multiple settings (e.g. private practice, community mental health agencies, hospitals, government, and business settings) where they can help bring spiritual, emotional, and psychological wellness into people’s lives. The objectives of the MACC program are to deliver a high, quality education required by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), and to prepare students to meet the requirements of the State of Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, & Marriage and Family Therapist Board (CSWMFTB) to become licensed as Professional Counselors.

Winebrenner Theological Seminary (Winebrenner) is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and the Association for Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.
