As a minister and professor of clinical psychology for nearly twenty years, I am aware of the great need to equip our church leaders with the essentials on how to address emotional distress, mental health crisis, and substance abuse issues. Church leaders may benefit from certificate training to help them better understand the symptoms, causes, and treatment options for emotional disorders. Our certificate program in Psychology, Pastoral Care and Counseling is designed to offer that training. This six course program meets Saturdays (10am to 2pm) and can be completed in six months. Graduates will learn about human development, pastoral care and counseling, brain and behavior, common psychological disorders, therapy options as well as an overview of psychopharmacology. Significant church member and pastoral scholarship discounts are available! Please also feel free to contact me directly for more information at (626) 968-1328.
On Wednesday March 11, LABI College President and CEO Dr. Marty Harris will be giving a lecture on the power of “Faith and Diversity”.

This event will be held at Chapman University and will be presented in front of doctoral students and faculty.
The role of the President’s cabinet at LABI College serves many functions. The role of a cabinet member includes that of a campus leadership review and recommendation body, advisor to the President, and someone who by nature of their role and authority has significant influence over a particular area or group of our community. Further still, cabinet members move and operate as an extension of and with authority of the president’s office; coupled with equal responsibility in making good decisions, protecting our institution, and in taking action through their respective roles. They also meet with the President daily and regularly, through stand-up meetings, staff meetings and cabinet meetings. Their role is also to serve as a critical voice to the stakeholders and constituents they serve. Their role has major impact on affecting policy recommendations, board interactions, and decisions that can have campus wide impact. Please see the link below that shares some about each member. As you see and meet with these folks, please remember to lift them up in prayer, and thank them for their service to your beloved LABI College.
In the spirit of broad communication and transparency, LABI College has been publishing campus reports monthly.

These campus monthly reports provide an overview of updates prepared by LABI departments and leadership team members representing – LABI College, Institute, Extensions, and Seminary. This report provides an opportunity for monthly community sharing on progress, opportunities, and challenges and related to our goals, programs, people, and processes.
