Biblical Counseling Leader Joins Boyce College Faculty
Curtis Solomon, director of the Biblical Counseling Coalition (BCC), has been named assistant professor of Biblical Counseling at Boyce College, bringing extensive academic and local church experience to Southern Seminary’s undergraduate school.
Solomon received his MDiv, ThM, and PhD from Southern Seminary and is the author of a brand-new book, Redeem Your Marriage: Hope for Husbands Who Have Hurt through Pornography (New Growth Press).
Solomon is well-acquainted with the Boyce College student body, having served for several years as an adjunct professor. He will serve as program coordinator for Biblical Counseling at the college and will remain in his position with the BCC.
Southern Seminary President Albert Mohler said Solomon is the right leader for Boyce’s counseling program because he brings both strong academic acumen and significant pastoral experience to his new position.
“The need for biblical counselors and for pastors skilled in counseling from Scripture is great,” Mohler said. “I am so thankful for the addition of Curtis Solomon to the Boyce College faculty, both as teacher and as coordinator of this program. He combines years of pastoral ministry with academic credibility.
“I am very proud of this program at Boyce College, and thankful God has provided a key leader and teacher to prepare the next generation of Boyce College students.”
Solomon said his new role allows him to serve a vibrant community he long ago grew to love.
“The community at Southern is the primary draw for me,” Solomon said. “From the students to the staff, faculty, campus police, administrators, and everyone else, the people make this place special. My new role will give me even more opportunity to sharpen and be sharpened by the campus’s vibrant spiritual life.”
Solomon said the opportunity to simultaneously serve Boyce College and the Biblical Counseling Coalition is deeply satisfying and humbling.
“Holding both of these roles is more than a dream come true,” Solomon said. “Having worked as an adjunct faculty member over the past few years while I served as the executive director of the Biblical Counseling Coalition gave me lots of opportunity to engage with the campus community, and I have loved it.”
Solomon’s goal is to equip students to serve the local church.
“I'm excited to be able to pour into future generations of believers the ability to accurately handle God's word and apply it to the challenges we face in life,” he said.
Dustin Bruce, Boyce College dean, said Solomon’s expertise is precisely what the school’s biblical counseling program values.
“Curtis Solomon comes to us as one of the most trusted names in biblical counseling,” Bruce said. “The expertise and experience he brings will only serve to enhance what I believe to be the premier undergraduate biblical counseling program in Christian higher education.”
