The BCCTR is charged with becoming financially self-sufficient, as well as keeping costs for credential holders as low as possible. The BCCTR must therefore rely on credentialing fees to cover its operating, consulting, research, and advocacy/defense missions. Even so, the following fees are substantially less than comparable national certification groups. Annual fees for both BCCTR and AACC membership are less than the cost of most other professional association fees without a national credential.

The goal of the BCCTR is to create a truly comprehensive Christian Care Connect that integrates the entire continuum of caregiving services and ministries, from professional practitioners to those individuals who provide lay helping such as support group resources, mentoring, mediation, and life coaching, as well as crisis and trauma response.

Please Note: BCCTR credential holders who wish to be part of the American Association of Christian Counselors comprehensive Christian Care Connect, must also be members, in good standing, with the AACC.
