Are you interested in the long haul -- companioning the oppressed? 

We have worked hard coordinating the most educated, abuse-informed & theologically trained instructors, wisest counselors & compassionate advocates to pack this 12-month class with everything you need to support survivors in your sphere of influence. Plus bonuses! 

We offer classes twice a year, in March and September. March 2024-25 tuition is $34.99 per month with an increase to $39.99 per month on February 25. Students can save $70 by paying $349 in full.

Get to know our Academy Instructors by going to our Academy About page!

Our next cohort begins September 2024!

Notify me when registration opens for the September 2024-25 Class:

1 - Sign up for Give Her Wings ACADEMY 12-month cohort & get instant access to:


12-month-long abuse & theologically informed curriculum units, case studies & survivor stories.


Add to your level of expertise, quality of care and professional resume with a GHWA certificate, given upon completion of course.


Pastors, counselors & advocates who get certified & vetted will be added to our "Recommended Safe Spaces" list for networking & survivor support purposes.

2 - As a member, your 12 months of study are divided into 3 units. Each unit consists of 16 weeks.

3 - How it Works


Our next class begins March 2024!

Every week you will receive an email from us letting you know the weekly lesson has been released.

* lessons are interviews between past and present GHW team members and one of the instructors shown here, or on our about page.

* the videos remain accessible throughout the course duration. After the 12 months, access to the videos ends. However, at the end of the course, students will be given the opportunity to purchase lifetime access to the material at a large discount.

* only materials needed are a journal & pen. 

Complete the weekly video & reading assignment, and discuss the weekly journal questions within the private online Facebook group.

Bonus material will be released throughout the month, such as survivor stories & case studies.

Enjoy optional monthly Zoom meet-ups in small groups, to further discuss the lessons with fellow class members from across the country (and world!).

Upon finishing, we will present you with your certificate of completion at the end of the 12-month period. 

Note: This is a training course for church leaders and Christian people-helpers seeking to become equipped to minister to victims in the Christian community. 

Past feedback has shown that this content can be severely triggering to recent domestic abuse survivors or current victims who sign up. We are unfortunately not able to offer licensed, therapeutic support to victims who take the course, and recommend that you begin working with a trauma-informed therapist or support group before applying, as our heart is to "do no harm."  We also recommend waiting two years after your divorce, and not joining during a custody battle. 

Three of our instructors who've donated their time to the Academy offer trauma-informed support groups, which we recommend: Leslie Vernick's Conquer program, Sarah McDugal's Wilderness to Wild, and Natalie Hoffman's Flying Free group. Some students take the Academy after completion of these programs.

We believe survivors make some of the best advocates and we would never want to hinder your healing by pushing you too fast too soon.

Do you want to become part of the solution?

Countless sufferers of abuse are coming forward and looking for help and change. And they don't know where to turn or who to trust. Our course will fully equip you to be able to come alongside hurting women and walk this dark forest of complicated grief, pain, suffering and loss.

"As a lead pastor of 40 years and counselor out of necessity, I have seen abuse in marriage rise to epidemic proportions. Sadly, most clergy and churches are oblivious as to how to best identify and help those living in the Catch 22, guilt, fear, shame, embarrassment, or terror of such abusive relationships. Give Her Wings Academy is better equipping me with the awareness, sensitivity, and knowledge to be of more help in such situations."
