****Trinity Christian Counseling Academy (T.C.C.A.) has met the criteria to function as a

National Christian Counselors Association (N.C.C.A.) Certified Academic Institution.  T.C.C.A will offer and administer all courses approved by N.C.C.A. and T.C.C.A. will provide all of the services needed for a candidate to qualify for certification or license, which is issued from the N.C.C.A.


     Potential Counselors often ask about the benefits of the training and how to obtain CERTIFICATION OR LICENSURE from the N.C.C.A. Of course, the primary benefit is expanding ones' knowledge. We believe that the training you receive provides a deep Spiritual insight to understanding human behavior and relating to others. This knowledge is both valuable and practical in every area of life, including your ability to help those who are hurting.

     Having the N.C.C.A. Credentials will help ensure that you are recognized within your community as a Qualified Christian/Pastoral Counselor.  The community can be assured that your credentials are authentic and current. This program is designed to be completed in the comfort of your home. We utilize  ZOOM which is a free teleconferencing program that we can actually see you face to face for discussions and supervising your counseling sessions. It is so easy to use, you are going to love it!

Dear Prospective Student,

I would like to take this opportunity to personally WELCOME you to the Trinity Christian Counseling Academy. We are so glad you have chosen to review our materials; should there be any questions please do not hesitate to contact us regardless of what the questions are!


A  little information about how the Academy was created:  I, Dr. Earl Butcher, have been counseling since 1983 when I was first ordained a minister. Back then, there were no Christian Counseling Classes that I could locate so I did the best  I could; but I promised God that if I could find a good program I would definitely take advantage of it. So this went on about 8 years and then a friend of mine told me about the National Chrisitan Counseling Program. I researched it and found they were using techniques I had never heard of. By this time I had graduated as an RN with Psychiatric training, but nothing prepared me for what I was to face in the Christian Counseling realm. These people were wanting answers to life's questions from a Biblical standpoint and I felt totally unprepared. So I took some time off because I didn't want to continue to give the same old pastor's answers: "pray, read the Word, and wait on God and He will reveal it to you". These are cliches that really don't fully answer the questions being asked. For our Academy, we have designed our classes in cooperation with the National Christian Counselors Association as well as many successful Christian Counselors and have covered every topic you will need to be a very successful counselor.
