In this article, David Powlison interviews John Street, a pastor of a local church who became committed to integrate counseling ministry with the more public ministries of his church. Street discusses how face-to face ministry must be a ministry of the Word done with depth and accuracy. Street concludes that a commitment to theological and exegetical accuracy finds its payoff in direct ministry to confused, straying, hurting people.
