The Internship Program here at CFTH, allows individuals and couples to learn this model of Biblical counselling as a counsellor or a lay-person, and to experience and multiply the ministry by caring for the hearts of people that God brings into your pathway. In order to fully understand the counselling process, all interns should become familiar with the contents of the Caring for the Heart resource materials available. Our intern update is linked below, and outlines the requirements and expectations for all of our interns. Please take the time to go over this update before applying.
In addition, interns should observe several counselling sessions which are held from 12:30 until 3:30 each day, Tuesday through Friday. All interns are required to sign a Statement of Confidentiality. Here at our offices in Wingham, Ontario, we now have room for several interns to observe the counselling process via closed circuit camera. If you are interested in pursuing an internship via CFTH, please contact us at 226.422.3015. For your convenience, you may access and complete the intern application below, and we will contact you once we have received it.
The In Depth Training Seminar is designed to give you, as a pastor, counselor, Christian worker, or lay person the ability to connect or help people in distress. You will be given tools to begin applying Biblical principles to help the people you are working with. CFTH staff will teach you to help people find freedom in three main areas: emotional problems, spiritual problems andspiritual strongholds. Our approach to counselling involves a dependence upon the Holy Spirit to lead us (counselors) to assist the counselee to resolve each of their personal problems. We trust the Holy Spirit to direct, convict and enable the counsellee in this process. We do not judge a person for where they have been, but seek to follow the direction of the Lord to resolve and lead individuals to freedom. (Galatians 5:1 John 10:10) Our Goal is to assist each person to realize and understand God's design and purpose in their lives and find fulfillment in being the person God designed for them to be ...spiritually free from anything that would hinder them from a right relationship with God and others. We meet together Monday through Friday 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.. We walk through specific areas of spiritual and emotional issues where people struggle and learn how to bring someone to freedom in each area. If possible, we like to incorporate live counselling which gives the opportunity to observe a real life counselling situation. You will also receive a workbook with notes that includes all the information you will be learning. Our desire is that those who undertake the In-Depth training would be better equipped to guide others in recognizing and resolving spiritual and emotional issues, so that "...their hearts may be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love. We want them to have complete confidence that they understand Gods mysterious plan, which is Christ himself. In him lie hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." Colossians 2:2,3 If you are interested in taking this In-Depth Training, you can check our events page here to see when the next training is being held.
