Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation



“To put it simply, we love CCEF. When I think and pray for CCEF, I don’t think necessarily of an organization or a para-church ministry … I think of the people. People like David Powlison, Ed Welch, Julie Lowe, Mike Emlet, Winston Smith, and others.” … Jonathan Holmes, CCEF Supporting Church Pastor

“CCEF’s approach to the Christian life, to understanding the human heart, and to counseling, introduced me to the power of repentance, as the way to detonate the power of God’s grace in my life. Their writing and our personal conversations had a strong influence not only on how I pastored people but how I preached when I moved to New York City to found Redeemer Church.” … Timothy Keller, Founding Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York, NY, Chairman of Redeemer City to City, and a Council member of The Gospel Coalition

“CCEF taught me to move toward hurting souls, not away from them or against them. After forty years in ministry, CCEF still shapes my learning.” … Rod Mays, Pastor of Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church, Greenville, SC, and Professor at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC

“In each generation, God blesses his Church in different ways. I believe one of those blessings in our times is the ministry of CCEF. I commend CCEF for clearly stating that they see themselves as an extension of the local church, where the Holy Spirit seems to do his best work in the midst of God’s people.”Dr. Miguel Núñez, Senior Pastor of International Baptist Church (DR), President and Founder of Wisdom & Integrity Ministries, and a Council member of The Gospel Coalition

“CCEF is all about giving hope and help with a ‘heart.’ If you want to learn how to effectively use God’s Word in counseling, this is your resource!”… Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends

“The vision of the centrality of God, the sufficiency of Scripture, and the necessity of sweet spiritual communion with the crucified and living Christ – these impulses that lie behind the CCEF ministries make it easy to commend them to everyone who loves the Church.”… John Piper, Pastor, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, MN

“CCEF’s teaching provides the best training I know of for applying the Word of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ to the tough problems of real life.”… Ken Sande, President, Relational Wisdom 360

“CCEF publications stand out among materials seeking to help the Christian live a life pleasing to God. Their publications are particularly biblical, helpful, and encouraging. We find ourselves daily recommending and using their books, journal articles, and pamphlets.”… Mark Dever, Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.

“CCEF does great work that I’ve been impressed with for years. Their articles and books are unapologetically biblical and deeply insightful and relevant in understanding and helping people. So great to have a theologically sound worldview that helps you view with discernment the beliefs and assumptions of various psychological methodologies.”… Randy Alcorn, author of Heaven and The Grace and Truth Paradox
