Dr. Scipione has been a minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church for nearly 35 years, and is the founder and former director of the Institute for Biblical Counseling and Discipleship in San Diego, a ministry that trains church officers and laymen in the principles and practices of counseling based on the Word of God as a fully sufficient guide. He practices and teaches the nouthetic counseling method, which has developed over the last forty years with various applications and been popularized in the U.S. by well-known pastors and authors such as Jay Adams, John MacArthur, and Al Mohler.
