Bible college and seminary expands course offerings to address the value of family

West Coast Bible College and Seminary (WCBCS) is leveraging its online bible college education to help foster meaningful relationships with families across America. The goal of the addition is to offer courses and certifications in family success that will help individuals, pastors, faith leaders, Christian counselors, and others develop the skills they need to either assist families or to earn certifications that will help individuals navigate family dynamics.

West Coast Bible College and Seminary allows mobile friendly, video- based certification courses which include Diploma of General Ministries, Associate of Ministry, Bachelor of Ministry and now the Certification in Family Success.

This Family Life Success course encompasses the 10 Best Practices of Successful Families and 10 Best Practices of Wealthy Families Models that were created by Phillip S. Porter, MBA, and Dr. Janice M. Porter, authors, and co-founders of Generations Empowerment Enterprises, LLC (GEE).

These models are based on their five decades of experiences living a vision-driven family lifestyle, faith-based principles, family relationship-building strategies, and proven wealth- building research. The principles and concepts outlined in this course will equip the students and families with the knowledge and confidence required to develop and implement a family success plan. This course is designed to bring families success in numerous areas including increased trusting relationships, and confidence to achieve their goals and dreams for generations.
