Q: How do I sign up for individual prayer ministry counseling?

Here is the process for requesting help from Richard Kinney or Nancy. First send an email requesting to be considered. At that point, Richard /Nancy will pray as to whether the Lord is leading them to be the one to help you at this particular time. After they have prayed they will contact you and let you know what they have received. We will talk with you about moving forward from there.  

Q: What is the School of the Four Living Creatures?

This is a four track school (Levels 1 and 2) which instructs and leads believers into a more balanced and functional spiritual life. By developing in a balanced way, in all four aspects of God as portrayed in the Four Living Creatures, we find that we get stronger people who grow much faster with better fruit in every area of life.

The school also serves as a foundation for those who wish to eventually study how to be counselors under the direction of Nancy Moelk and Richard Kinney. The individual Schools, both Levels 1 and 2,  are a requirement for acceptance into the Prayer Ministry Counseling track.

Q: How do I study the courses in the School of the Four Living Creatures?

The School of the Four Living Creatures is a self-study course. Once you sign up and make an account you will have access to the  files right from the website. Word documents for you to download are provided at the end of Questions, Personal Application Activities and Quizzes for your convenience in writing your responses right into the files.

For those hoping to be accepted into the Prayer Ministry Counseling track, they will need to turn in their answers to the Questions, Personal Application Activities and Quizzes as part of their application process.

Q: How long does a typical course take?

You will have three months to complete each Level Course. For instance, The School of the Man, Level 1, has six lessons and you will have three months to complete them. The same applies for The School of the Eagle, The School of the Lion and The School of the Ox. Level 2 will be the same.

Q: Are there any prerequisites for the Prayer Ministry Counseling Track?

All people desiring to study in the counselor track will be required to complete both Level 1 and Level 2 of the School of the Four Living Creatures. We value highly the personal development and maturity of anyone hoping to minister to others and request that you allow the materials in our School to have a full impact on your life personally.


Remember that these courses are more of an experiential rather than an informational curriculum. Since one of the biggest foundations for helping others is to have grown and matured yourself, it is wise to go over the concepts presented in the first four levels making sure you have applied them to your life. The further instruction provided in the Counseling program will help you to become an effective counselor.

Another prerequisite is that you have a minimum of four counseling appointments with either Richard or Nancy before graduating.

Q: Where can I find other written resources to help me with my family and personal issues?

Q: How can I get university credit for my courses in the School of the Four Living Creatures?

This option is not yet available but we hope to provide this in the future. The credits will be part of a wider curriculum provided by the sponsoring University. Make sure to sign up to receive news from Firehouse Ministries, Inc. at the bottom of this page.
