My Interview with Ed Welch of CCEF

This past fall, RTS Charlotte launched its new degree program in biblical counseling.  We are very excited about how God will use this new program to bless the church with men and woman who have been trained to apply God’s word more effectively in a one-on-one context.  You read more about the program here.

Last week (Jan 19-22), Dr. Ed Welch from the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF) came and taught a week-long course for RTS Charlotte entitled, “Ethos and Essentials of Biblical Counseling.”  The course was so full (87 students) that we had to move it to our chapel.

During the lunch break on that Tuesday, I led a “President’s Forum” with Dr. Welch where we invited area pastors, counselors, students, and Christian leaders. I interviewed him on a number of important questions related to biblical counseling such as, “What is biblical counseling?”, “What can you do with a biblical counseling degree?”, “What about pastoral burnout?” and more.  Here is the interview:
