New and Better Covenant Academy gives practical support by offering advice and counseling with a view to improving areas that have hindered you. Whether counseling is a new experience for you or something you've done before, it is common to have questions about how counseling can help you and what to expect.
Our counseling service provides an interactive process of talking with a skilled professional. Sometimes the goal is to help you see and understand more clearly the obstacles which are preventing you from reaching your full potential. Other times, it simply helps to express yourself about painful or traumatizing situations that have been "eating away at you" from the inside.
There are many benefits to working in a therapeutic relationship with a professional counselor. It can be a relief to tell someone who is impartial about difficulties you have struggled with on your own. You may have a longstanding challenge, be experiencing new difficulties, or simply have the feeling that something isn’t right.
Dr. Richard Yarbrough is a neutral and experienced professional who will not judge you or pressure you, but will work with you to move toward the goals that are important to you. Whether it is providing assistance during a current crisis, or helping to process painful events of the past, Dr. Yarbrough is here to help.
We work to provide individuals, couples and families with effective therapy, knowledgeable support, and the opportunity to develop the skills needed to be successful personally and professionally. Then we help you identify and implement new strategies to reduce the barriers to your progress and acquire the skills, attitudes, and resources necessary to succeed.

What People Are Saying:
Senior Pastor Patrick McDonald
Word of Life Fellowship
Mi Wuk Village, CA
"For over 20-years, Rick Yarbrough led our Water Baptism classes, here at Word of Life Fellowship. During that period of time, Rick taught literally hundreds of hungry new believers and prepared them for one of the greatest life-changing experiences in Christianity – Covenant Water Baptism. And he did not restrict his courses to the basic “outward-sign-of-an-inward-work” teaching. The depth and magnitude of the revelation on this subject, and the way it is threaded throughout the entire Bible is nothing short of remarkable."

"Rick, well you have outdone yourself this time. Great paper! ... At this stage, you become the teacher, and I am the one that needs to be taught...
This is certainly "A+" work. You have enough material for a whole degree program.
What you have outlined looks like a total theological rebuild of BCT. Which I am in favor of... Carry on - you have a great outline."
Contractor, Dow Construction / Church Elder
"My name is Ken Dow. I have known Rick Yarbrough for over forty years. His work on the doctrine of water baptism over the years has been very commendable. His commitment to studying the word and teaching this doctrine has been well received and a blessing to many in the Word of Life Church and elsewhere. His dedication and commitment over the years have blessed many. With the guidance of the
Holy Spirit, Rick has followed biblical principles in his ministry. I am very honored to put my name to honor Rick Yarborough. Ken Dow, a brother in Christ."
Pastor Ronnie Mainville
Former Assistant Pastor of Haevist Fellowship
"When I left my ministry before a move across the country, we attended my wife's childhood church, Word of Life Fellowship in Mi Wuk Village CA. She wanted to be water baptized in the truth of covenant baptism and wanted me to attend Rick Yarbrough's baptism class with her. I'm a Pastor, why would I want to take a class on something as fundamental as water baptism? I'm glad I did. Rick explained the doctrine of baptisms in a way I have never heard before. He covered the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire and water baptism, with an understanding of what it means to be born again. He opened scriptures I had skipped over before because I didn't see where they fit in. His class changed my understanding of what it means to be born again."
Reader of "Covenant Baptism" by
"5.0 out of 5 stars. Excellent study about the great significance of Water baptism. Reviewed in the United States on April 10, 2016 I was looking for something to help me select a topic to study from the Bible. I haven't seen many studies written about the great significance of water baptism and the effects of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
This is a great book, full of scriptures and a sharing of the author's painstaking study of these topics. Mr. Yarbrough also discusses speaking in tongues at Pentecost, (Acts 2). I believe God gave the apostles the ability to speak the native languages of the people present at Pentecost so that they could understand God's Word. Although the author has a different understanding about speaking tongues, I thoroughly enjoyed reading and contemplating the deeper meaning in God's Word of these subjects. I think you will be blessed by reading it."
