Counselor Education & Workshops


The education ministry of the Julianna Poor Memorial Counseling Center was established on March 28, 2004 to encourage and equip those who demonstrate a calling to the ministry of Christian Counseling. The ministry was named in honor of the work and dedication of Marge Caldwell to members and friends of Houston's First Baptist Church.


The mission for the counselor education component of the center is to help individuals be clinically competent, professionally current, and Christ-centered. Our vision for accomplishing this mission has multiple components.

  1. Supervision, education, and mentoring for masters level practicum and associate counselors
  2. Continuing Education offerings for the mental health community
  3. Certification courses for premarital couples and parents
  4. Presentation seminars for the purpose of developing curriculum and presenter skills
