American Association of Christian Counselors
From Dr. Timothy Clinton, President of AACC: We understand the challenges in helping others. And whether you are a pastor, clinician, physician or lay helper, we exist to serve you faithfully as you care for others. As a member, we'll help you become more aware of current trends and issues in counseling, deliver cutting-edge services and offer timely resources—all designed to help increase your counseling effectiveness. As we grow together, we will work to:
- Help you handle the Bible with confidence while dealing with life's most difficult and trying issues.
- Offer insight on clinical issues and patterns that have emerged through reflection, research and scholarship.
- Provide practical tools and strategies to help you in your day-to-day ministry.
- Offer standards and direction in handling the tough legal, ethical and gray areas of counseling.
In a very short time, AACC has become the leading organization for professional, pastoral and lay counselors. Nearly 50,000 members have found a place for "professional affiliation" and a "place to belong"—an organization that provides support, education, resources and encouragement, and strives to be practical, Biblically-based and clinically excellent.

*AACC is committed to assisting Christian counselors, the entire "community of care," licensed professionals, pastors, and lay church members with little or no formal training. It is our intention to equip clinical, pastoral, and lay care-givers with biblical truth and psychosocial insights that minister to hurting persons and helps them move to personal wholeness, interpersonal competence, mental stability, and spiritual maturity.
