Scripture teaches that “without a vision, the people perish”. (Prov. 29:18) It is this biblical observation that goes to the heart of the guidance department’s philosophy concerning career, academic, and spiritual guidance.
Students need to examine their gifts and talents in the light of God’s word in order to ascertain what He may have designed them to do. Scripture also teaches that “in all labor, there is profit” (Prov. 14:23) so there is no one-size-fits-all in either God’s economy, or in ours. In short, students are exhorted to seek God’s face, and examine their gifts in the light of His guidance.
The guidance counselor works largely in this area of spiritual guidance.
On the other hand, questions concerning salvation, spiritual walk, as well as other largely spiritual issues are handled more often by our Student Ministries Pastor, who is on the school staff and available during school hours to DBCS students for counsel as well.
