Continuing education credits are available for a $35 fee. Advance registration is required and available at www.mtso.edu/macm30.

MTSO offers master of arts in counseling ministries degrees in three tracks: pastoral care and counseling; addiction counseling; and pastoral and professional counseling, which leads to eligibility to take the professional counselor licensing board examination.

Featured speakers at the March 16 event are former master of arts in counseling ministries director Vergel Lattimore, who now serves as president of Hood Theological Seminary, and Jill Snodgrass, assistant professor of pastoral counseling at Loyola University Maryland and co-editor of the recently published book “Understanding Pastoral Counseling.”
