New Life University is a school with classes both online and on campus at Branches Recovery Center in Murfreesboro, TN. New Life University is a community dedicated to bring hope, healing, and healers to the Body of Christ. The mission of New Life University is to provide quality training that brings together the best of Biblical thought and secular education. We believe that emotional and spiritual healing is the new evangelism, that hurting, broken people are a harvest field in need of the healing power of God and His church. By training godly counselors, coaches, and mentors NLU is not only living out its own mission but fulfilling the Great Commission. NLU training benefits anyone who desires to help others, make a difference in their world, and live out the call of Christ to reach the lost, heal the brokenhearted, and care for the hurting in our world.
The 2 year NLU program offers credentialing for pastoral counselors through the National Christian Counselors Association. The NCCA certification/licensing program is not to be identified nor confused with state licensing in any way. It is intended for a person who wants to practice as a servant of the Body of Christ. The authority to counsel while recognized by the State is granted by the Church. In addition to the training offered by NLU, the NCCA requires a ministerial credential to complete the program. In addition we train Christian Life Coaches and Christian Mentors to minister to the whole body in the Body.
New Life University was born out of the success of Branches Recovery Center and the cry across the country for similar facilities. Our desire is to equip gifted and Godly men and women to spread the opportunity for healing to more places.
