Christian Counseling Psychology (M.A.C.C.P.)

1. Mission | Mission

Korean immigrant churches and immigrant societies in multicultural-racial societies need counseling services that are appropriate for the situation of Korean immigrants. Although many immigrant church members have received spiritual, psychological, social, and cultural reassurance and comfort in the church, the lack of professional counselors and ministries has prevented them from responding effectively to the various challenges and problems that may arise in their lives. I did it. The Christian Counseling Psychology Department at the American Presbyterian Theological Seminary will interpret these challenges facing immigrant churches and immigrant communities from a holistic perspective that harmoniously combines the Bible, theology, and psychology.
