Grace Ministries International offers advanced discipleship training called The Encounter. This is an in-depth classroom and experiential training program designed to take the learner deeper into their own spiritual journey and equip the disciple to become the discipler. The purpose of The Encounter is to provide the opportunity to encounter Christ in community with other believers, as well as equip them to effectively communicate the truth of the indwelling, empowering presence of Christ as Life. The students will participate in community with fellow students, as well as have opportunities to meet with a personal mentor. Currently, the sessions are offered in a remote environment.

Equipping the Discipleship Counselor (EDC) is a 7-month, multi-faceted training experience, including classroom study, videos, and co-counseling learning. This 23-session program will equip men and women who sense God’s calling to pastoral counseling with a firm introduction to the Exchanged Life Model of discipleship counseling. The focus of EDC is learning, observing, and practicing basic counseling skills. Reading, homework, class participation, and co-counseling hours are required for your certificate. This program does not qualify one as a Licensed Professional Counselor, however, it does prepare participants for pastoral counseling. Currently, EDC is offered remotely. Click HERE to apply.

Experienced Discipleship Counselors
Because of our unique approach, Grace Ministries International trains its own staff and others around the world for the last 40 years. Since we do Biblically-based, Christ-centered discipleship counseling we do not necessarily look to secular standards as qualifying people for staff positions at GMI.
Grace Ministries International employs a method of discipleship counseling utilizing a spiritual, grace-focused process. In this kind of counseling, the Holy Spirit, not the counselor, is the therapist, and God becomes the agent of change (provided the client cooperates with Him). Grace Ministries International does not practice psychotherapy nor are our counselors licensed professional counselors giving them the freedom to pursue a faith-based solution.
Counseling sessions are generally 50 minutes in length and weekly appointments are ideal, especially in the beginning of the process. Longer sessions are possible if necessary. Depending on the nature of the problem, an individual can expect to spend six to twelve months in the discipleship counseling process, longer if necessary. The goal, however, is for you to walk free, not spend years in counseling.
Most of our clients see the truth of God's grace for the first time and are never the same.
Let’s just say it was a life changer! Being there was such a gift from God and so impactful! I was like I need to tell everyone that Christ is our life! I literally told people all weekend what I learned! It truly brought a lot of clarity and is helping me walk in the freedom of the gospel. I only wish I had gone sooner…
Divine Design Conference
This conference made me realize that I need to look more at myself and my relationship with God if I want to have a more satisfying fulfilling marriage.
Grace Ministries is amazing. I am look[ing] forward to my weekly appointment and God is doing a mighty work through this ministry in my life. I am so grateful for the opportunity!
