Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation

CCEF Now Magazine

CCEF Now 2016CCEF Now 2016 features articles from four of our faculty members and an interview with one of our contract counselors—David Powlison, Ed Welch, Winston Smith, Alasdair Groves, and Melissa Clemens.

Serving a broad spectrum of students through CCEF courses has opened a fresh angle on our mission. These students vividly illustrate that there are two kinds of love that are part of every Christian’s calling. We are all called to practical giving through mercy ministries that extend tangible help to people in need, but we are all called to wisdom- giving through constructive personal conversations. Everyone needs relevant, encouraging, life-rearranging truth that connects the dots from Christ to our daily lives. In other words, good deeds and good words are both part of walking in the Lord.

The articles in this issue of CCEF Now address both ministry of mercy and ministry of wisdom-giving. The issue also highlights the ministry of two counseling centers: Philadelphia Renewal Network and Life Counseling Center. Our prayer is that you will be equipped and encouraged as you read.

We are grateful for the support we receive from our donors! Without it, this resource could not be produced and made available free of charge. Thank you!
