National Christian Counselors Association

About the NCCA



About Perspectives Global

Perspectives is  course designed around four vantage points or "perspectives" — Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic. Each one highlights different aspects of God's global purpose.

The Biblical and Historical sections reveal why our confidence is based on the historic fact of God's relentless work from the dawn of history until this day.

The Cultural and Strategic sections underscore that we are in the midst of a costly, but very "do-able" task, confirming the Biblical and Historical hope.

Agapé Therapeutic Church

About Agape

 In 2000, Nivaldo and Ana Alice Coelho started the Evangelical Baptist Church Agape in Campo Grande-MS, Brazil, whose ministry is focused on caring for and restoring lives. Today, after 18 years, Nivaldo is forming what he calls the TIM (Therapeutic Church Model), investing in the formation of pastoral counselors leaders to make the church a healthy and welcoming environment; our heart is focused on planting new Therapeutic Churches, with the current number of Therapeutic Churches being 10.

As part of this project, today they coordinate the Ministry of Freedom in Christ in Brazil, ministry presents in 41 countries and founded by Dr. Neil Anderson. Because they were profoundly involved in the restoration of pastors and their families, in 2018 they invited the Aaron & Hur International Ministry to become partners with MIT.
