The BCLC is charged with becoming financially self-sufficient, as well as keeping costs for credential holders as low as possible. The BCLC 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 BCLC and AACC membership are less than the cost of most other professional association fees without a national credential.

The goal of the BCLC is to create a truly comprehensive Christian care network that integrates the entire continuum of counseling services and ministries, from professional practitioners to those individuals who provide lay helping such as support group resources, mentoring, mediation, and life coaching.
