Counseling: Evangelism’s Unexpected Friend
Counseling—biblical counseling—fits neatly under pastoral care. It identifies the process of knowing an individual, knowing what God speaks, and joining the two in a meaningful way. We think of it as part of shepherding. But, like preaching, in our counseling we want to speak to those who are in Christ and those who haven’t put their trust in Jesus, and it is with those outside of Christ that we find counseling to be an unusually good match. This topic will look for ways that our counseling is a natural form of evangelism.
