Celebrating the Graduate School of Counseling (GSOC)

“As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” (John 20:21)

We’re all in the midst of a season of collective trauma. We’re facing a mental health crisis, racial injustice, and social unrest, and yet God is still present and still at work. The purpose for this webinar is to pause, recognize, and celebrate the ways in which God has and is working through Missio counseling students and alums as we celebrate our 50th anniversary.

Vision Cast for Future & Concluding Comments

Jesus announced his public ministry by reading a portion of Isaiah. He said he came to “proclaim good news to the poor… to proclaim liberty to the captives… to set at liberty those who are oppressed…” (Luke 4:18, ESV). We consider it a privilege to celebrate how God is working through individuals trained through Missio’s GSOC. We look forward to continuing to strengthen the program in order to continue sending out counselors prepared to address spiritual, mental, and emotional needs of their clients, ministries, and communities.
