Dr. Luther Smith
My name is Dr. Luther Smith. I am the Dean of the College the Department Chair of the Biblical Counseling department at Calvary University, and the Lead Counselor/Owner of N(y)oo Mind Biblical Counseling Center. I was formerly a psychological assistant at a recovery center in San Diego, an adjunct professor at San Diego Christian College, and a teaching elder at Potrero Community Church. Before becoming the Department Chair at Calvary University, I was an Academic Advisor for Southern California Seminary, a content creator for the Taylor Study Method, and a student worker at SCS.
I was born in Fort Ord Monterey but have resided in San Diego. Now I live in Missouri with my wife, Tanya, and my daughter, Wisdom. I received my BA in Psychology from Ashford University and earned my Masters in Religious Studies (MRS) and a Masters in Counseling Psychology (MACP) from SCS in 2011. In December 2016, I completed my doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D) from Southern California Seminary. I write books and train students and laypeople to counsel from a Biblical worldview using the therapeutic techniques I have learned in my graduate and post-graduate programs. Some of my recreational activities include spending time with family, listening to music, reading, writing, and studying personal areas of interest.
A New Book by Dr. Luther Smith
In The Divine Nine, Luther Smith seeks to observe the philosophical beliefs in what the author calls the Charismatic-theological perspective, the Non-Charismatic perspective, and the Normal, grammatical, and historical perspective, contrasting each perspective with the Scriptures. The Divine Nine seeks to help readers understand the spiritual gifts and a clear outlook regarding this critical topic.
