Above & Beyond Counseling Center focuses on providing excellent Christian counseling and deliverance ministry services to clients all over the world. We help individuals, couples and families in our FL offices and also worldwide via internet conferencing.
Christian counseling, as opposed to secular counseling which has a humanist view, relies upon biblical principles and truths to help people. Man was created with a body, soul and spirit and these must be in harmony with the Holy Spirit so that one can have a blessed and abundant life.
Deliverance ministry is the practice of driving demons out of people. Individuals can be tormented and oppressed by demonic spirits and the calling out of these was an important part of Jesus’ ministry on earth. He called his church to do the same (Mark 16:17) and gave it power and authority over the demonic realm. Above & Beyond Counseling Center ministers in response to that directive.
Above & Beyond Counseling Academy is the educational of the ministry and has a twofold purpose:
- help motivated students earn Masters and PhD degrees in Clinical Christian Counseling through self-paced, home study courses offered through the National Christian Counselors Association, and
- provide online training programs to train others in our proven and effective five-step process of deliverance ministry.
We derive our name from the Ephesians 3:20 scripture verse: He is able!
