Steve and Erika Lawry Parakaleo Christian Ministry at Stanford, CA
Steve and Erica Lawry are now in their 43rd year of serving both undergraduate and graduate students at Stanford University through their organization Parakaleo Christian Ministries. Their purpose is to guide believers to biblical answers to the nitty-gritty issues of their own lives, and equip them with practical scriptural wisdom for others who open up to them throughout their professional and personal lives.
Last year Steve and Erica published their very practical how to live Romans 8 book in response to much urging from former students who have seen the long-lasting impact of the Biblical Counseling Course in their own lives and ministries after graduating. They are now putting together the final booklet in the “How (not what!) to Change” series from the heart of Romans, a practical summary of Paul’s three steps of change with comprehensive examples of how to apply all three to a number of commonly challenging issues of life to achieve real transformation and a much closer on-going partnership with the Lord.
Meanwhile Steve and Erica are still actively teaching, mentoring and counseling students; presenting issues seminars; hosting a daily all-campus prayer meeting; and serving as a resource to other Christian groups on campus.
