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.

  1. Hi Chuck, I can’t find out how to email you on City Church’s website. A friend of mine sent me this article on the Quarter-Life Crisis, and given your recent foray into the “young adults” risking relationships seminar, I thought you might find it interesting for your repertoire or a future talk. Not necessarily a Biblical perspective, but true nonetheless. It’s not too long.

    Hope all is well,
