Dr. Fred Gingrich Profile

“In the world of training for therapists, these are unique programs. First of all, we are a Christian program taught by a Christian institution and by Christian faculty. Each course encourages reflection on one’s faith, the faith of one’s clients, and the overall role of spirituality in the process of change. We hope you resonate with that emphasis. Secondly, this is a primarily online program which does not require much classroom attendance. There are a few weekend residencies depending on your program, but otherwise students can live at home, work locally if needed, and do their practicum and internship close to home. Online learning is different but it has many advantages and few disadvantages. TFC provides an excellent, diverse, well-rounded faculty to assist you in becoming the best you can be as a therapist to individuals, couples, and families. Join us!”
