Our Story

In the late 1990s, several certified pastoral counselors recognized the need for more clinical education and practice that would facilitate greater access to state certification for more practitioners to become pastoral counselors. In 2014, the legislative bodies of the Commonwealth of Kentucky voted to translate that certification to licensure, becoming the fifth state (of six to date) to fully license pastoral counselors.

KPCC has the approval of the Kentucky Board of Licensure for Pastoral Counselors to provide training for counselors who desire to be licensed to practice in Kentucky as mental and behavioral health practitioners who are also dually trained in theological/pastoral studies as well as the mental and behavioral health sciences.

KPCC does not operate from a brick-and-mortar location. With physical file storage located securely and discreetly in Louisville, Kentucky, KPCC operates virtually, with trainers located in various parts of the Commonwealth, affording supervision and training to any Kentuckian anywhere. 

This site is the home of KPCC.

This trainee-led, seminar-style program is designed to fit the lifestyles of pastoral counselors-in-training who have full-time jobs, but who need the coursework and supervision we provide in order to sit for the licensure exam.
