Plumbing the Depths with Carey Hardey

Carey Hardey

In addition to his responsibilities as senior associate pastor, he shepherds a Sunday-morning fellowship group. He also teaches at our annual Shepherds’ Conference, as well as teaching on various issues related to biblical counseling, marriage, and the Christian life at other churches and Bible conferences. Carey is also an adjunct professor at The Master’s College and Seminary. Carey graduated from the University of Houston with a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy in 1977. In 1984 he sold his pharmacy to be on the staff of a church in Texas as Christian school principal and minister of music. Carey came to California in 1990 to study at The Master’s Seminary and graduated with a master of divinity degree. He and his wife, Pam, have four children.1

Last week Carey Hardey gave a seminar on counseling titled plumbing the depths. Here are the highlights:

Big Picture Issues to look for in counseling

1. Wrong Goals
2. Lust
3. Wrong Priotities
4. Fear of Man
5. Love of Self
6. Wrong View of God
7. Lack of Trust in God
8. Pride
9. Blameshifting

These are some major issues that will present themselves in actions like anger, depression, etc.
If you are anything like me you have repented about each and everyone of these issues.

Here are some steps to pick up on these issues:

1. Gather Data
2. Make a Biblical Interpretation
3. Be Familiar with Scripture
4. Give Biblical Answers
