The Georgia Board of Examiners for Christian Counselors & Therapists was birthed by Dr. Olin Mullinax, Dr. Gary Rogers, Dr. Bill Denton, and Dr. Jack Kelly in concert with Georgia Secretary of State The Honorable Max Cleland in 1991.
Drs. Mullinax, Rogers, Denton, and Kelly met with then-Secretary of State Cleland. He suggested that Christian Counselors who were exempt from the state composite board be certified by their own Board of Examiners for Georgia Christian Counselors & Therapists for accountability.
Thus, The Georgia Board of Examiners for Christian Counselors & Therapists was birthed.

GBOE Statement of Faith
We believe that God created the heavens and the earth and in Genesis 1:26, He created man and woman.
We believe that He sent his only son, Jesus Christ into this world for us and that Jesus went to the cross to die for our sins.
We also believe that when Jesus ascended into Heaven He sent us the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Holy Spirit in us guides and directs us as we pursue higher education.
Our belief and education coupled with the Holy Spirit gives us direction to be able to counsel with truth, faith, and reasoning.
GBOE Vision Statement
Humbly invoking the assistance of Almighty God, we dedicate ourselves for the following purposes: To certify Christian Counselors and Therapists so that they can have the freedom to offer Christian Counseling to everyone. To know that they are part of an organization which gives them the opportunity to reach a dying world through Christian Counseling. To be able to counsel and charge their clients as their degrees reflect in their own offices.
We also certify Pastoral Counselors so that they can serve within their Church and work with those who have counseling needs.
GBOE Mission Statement
Our mission is to see that every Christian Counselor in the state of Georgia is counseling from a biblical perspective. For every Christian Counselor to separate their counseling from secular counseling and to always pray with their clients. Also for every Christian Counselor to be certified and under the covering of Logos Global Network of Christian Ministries for their and the client’s protection. Lastly that we can bind together and be blessed by our Heavenly Father as a threefold cord is not easily broken.
