The Pastor as Counselor

The Pastor as Counselor

From Series: Basics 2016

Selected scriptures

As a pastor, you are rightly focused on preaching God’s Word and leading your congregation as a local body. Although it may seem that counseling requires a different skillset or would take time away from your public ministry, helping people to apply biblical truths to life’s real challenges is also important. It is through relationships that individuals grow in godliness, building up the church and God’s Kingdom as a whole. In this session, Jonathan Holmes encourages pastors to be involved in counseling and gives practical suggestions on developing and sustaining a Scripture-based counseling ministry at their church.
