About Chuck DeGroat
I have enjoyed a fluid combination of pastoral ministry, clinical counseling, and seminary teaching for the past 12 years, most of it spent in Orlando, FL. Prior to 2008, I taught and served as Director Spiritual Formation at RTS (Orlando). In 2008, I took a position with City Church (San Francisco). Together with my colleague Scot Sherman, I am working to develop a Reformed, ecumenical, and missional seminary here on the West Coast. We call it The Newbigin Seminary Project. Within it is an exciting initiative called Newbigin Fellowship, a lay training program in worldview, spiritual formation, and community. I also direct City Church Counseling Center, which serves a wide range of spiritual and emotional needs for the church and city, and facilitates a lay counselor training program for the church.
I hold a PhD in Psychology with a special emphasis in the psychology and theology of soul care and spiritual formation.
I enjoy my incredible wife of 15 years – Sara – and two beautiful daughters – Emma and Maggie.
