About the Author: Chuck DeGroat, PH.D., LPC
Chuck has spent the last 20+ years in a fluid combination of pastoral ministry, seminary teaching, and clinical counseling. He writes mostly about the intersections of psychology, theology, and Christian spirituality…with a focus on our lived experience of oneness and worthiness in Jesus.
Prior to coming to Western Theological Seminary, Chuck was a teaching pastor at City Church San Francisco, where he co-founded Newbigin House of Studies, an urban and missional training center with M.Div. and M.A. offerings through Western Theological Seminary, MI. Chuck started two church counseling centers, a Lay Counseling Program further developed by his City Church colleagues, and a Fellows program. All of this represents his commitment to formation for mission.
His first book is Leaving Egypt: Finding God in the Wilderness Places (Square Inch), which represents his narrative biblical paradigm for understanding counseling, care, and formation. His second book, The Toughest People to Love (Eerdmans), focuses on caring for the most difficult people leaders encounter. His third book, Wholeheartedness: Busyness, Exhaustion and Healing the Divided Self (Eerdmans), brings a vision of wholeness amidst our perfectionism and shame-based culture. His self-published Lenten devotional is Falling Into Goodness.You can contact Chuck via his blog at chuckdegroat.net or on twitter at @chuckdegroat.
