Requirements and Applications

ACBC Fellows are those who supervise incoming ACBC counselors in Phase 3 of certification. Fellow membership is reserved for men who demonstrate unique abilities to counsel, who serve as supervisors of counselors in training, and who provide leadership in applying biblical counseling principles to life.

ACBC remains the benchmark standard for biblical counseling training and certification. In order to keep our standards at a premium, a model has been developed to ensure an excellent Fellow training protocol.
