Chuck DeGroat

Chuck DeGroat teaches at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida, where he is also the Director of Spiritual Formation. In his role, he introduces future pastors to the ancient rhythms of curam animarum, or the care of souls. In part, this involves developing the prophetic imagination of pastors through the full menu of biblically-sanctioned forms of dialogue—story, poetry, art, music, proposition, parable, among others. Chuck is also a Mental Health Counselor who specializes in sexual and emotional abuse. He is completing a doctoral dissertation on the realities of pastoral life. In his spare time, Chuck enjoys time with his wife of thirteen years, Sara, and their two girls Emma and Maggie. Chuck and Sara love to do interior decorating, and enjoy long, quiet days on the beach with a good book.
