A Nouthetic Philosophy of Ministry

Journal of Biblical Counseling 20:3

In this article, David Powlison interviews Steve Viars, the pastor of a church that self-consciously seeks to show how the Lord’s people operate as a counseling community. Viars pastors Faith Baptist Church and seeks to integrate all of its ministries around a vision for transforming lives by the grace of Christ. Viars discusses how they actively link Sunday sermons with Monday counseling sessions, with small group life and with outreach to the community.
