ABU Opens On Campus Counseling Center

Arlington Baptist University, as part of its core mission, seeks to come alongside students and encourage them to grow in their walk with Christ in all areas of life. Amid the rigors of academia, it can be difficult at times to find space to navigate personal struggles. ABU is convinced that it is critical to care for their students holistically. In order to accomplish this, the student needs avenues to grow in various aspects of their life: academia, athletics, as well as emotional and spiritual health. Many of the pressures students face can become increasingly challenging to navigate if not addressed, and therefore spill over into every other area. Through much prayer, it became clear that opening a safe space for students to go and find biblical care and support was the next step. On September 8th, 2022, ABU opened a campus Biblical Counseling Center with the aim of better caring for students. The counseling is free to all students and provides a safe environment to work through the unique challenges and pressures each individual is facing.

Currently, the counseling center is staffed by a husband-and-wife team, Dr. Charles Kuthe and his wife Erin Kuthe. Charles and Erin have been in ministry for nearly 20 years and consider it a privilege to walk with those who are struggling. They seek to provide a safe and helpful environment to wrestle with the challenges of life in partnership together. Right now, the center is open Fridays from 8am-12pm or by appointment.
