Counseling Services

(JBU) Subsidized Counseling for JBU Online Undergraduate Students: Students who are currently enrolled full-time in online undergraduate classes are eligible to receive JBU-subsidized counseling services at counseling practices that have agreements with JBU in place. Counseling is for the purpose of helping the students work through personal concerns that might otherwise make continuing their education more of a challenge. For information, email Missy Swyers at

Office of Christian Formation

The Office of Christian Formation (OCF) exists to lead the JBU community to become more like Christ through discipleship, corporate worship, and outreach. Within OCF are two primary divisions related to JBU students: Chapel and Student Ministries. For information, call (479) 524-7213.


The JBU Online Undergraduate Program Chaplain serves JBU's adult learner population through pastoral presence and prayer. The Chaplain writes a monthly devotion and receives and prays for any prayer requests given on behalf of the students. In these and a variety of other ways, the Chaplain supports the mission of John Brown University, fostering the spiritual growth, giving emotional support and assistance when needed.
