Healthy Sexuality is a Distance Learning Certificate Program consisting of five-units of study—a total of 30, hour-long lectures. Throughout this course, we intend to educate people everywhere about God’s design for sexuality, to train couples, pastors, lay leaders, counselors and anyone else who wants to make a difference in society, and to restore to wholeness those who have been broken by sexual abuse and sin. This program offers the knowledge, skill, and encouragement needed to more effectively address the myriad of sexual issues and challenges we face today. Don’t just curse the darkness, light a candle and become part of the solution!

The purpose of this course is to educate people everywhere about God’s design for sexuality, train couples, pastors, lay leaders, counselors and anyone else who wants to make a difference in society, and restore to wholeness of those who have been broken by sexual abuse and sin. As Healthy Sexuality helps with better understanding of this issue, counselors can learn how to “be there” for those who are struggling.
