Samford University’s Beeson Divinity School is excited to offer two upcoming events geared toward those pursuing a career in Christian counseling.

On January 26, Eric Johnson, a longtime professor of Christian psychology, will speak about a “case for Christ” in counseling, where he will argue for the centrality of Christ in counseling.

Johnson currently teaches Christian psychology at Houston Christian University and previously taught psychology and worldview studies for 10 years at the University of Northwestern, St. Paul. He also spent 17 years teaching counseling at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Johnson will speak in Divinity Hall N101, from 12 to 1 p.m. Register and learn more here.

In addition to this event, Beeson will host an open house for those interested in the new Master of Arts in Christian Counseling (MACC), which launches this fall. Applications are open now, with priority deadline for scholarship consideration coming up on Feb. 1.

The open house is set for Feb. 19, also in Divinity Hall N101, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Beeson professor Gordon Bals, who leads the MACC program, will share the vision and design for the program and will be available to answer questions for those interested in the degree.

The event is free, with registration available online.
