Roger Edwards

Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor

Roger Edwards joined The Barnabas Center in 1991 and works with both with individuals and couples.  Prior to joining The Barnabas Center, Roger spent ten years as a college-campus minister through InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.  He is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) and holds a master’s degree in biblical counseling from Grace Theological Seminary in Indiana and a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

Roger also teaches and leads groups and retreats applying the Gospel to everyday life.  He’s taught seminars on marriage and “How to Have Redemptive Conversations,” led ministry leader’s groups on counseling model and skills, men’s retreats, and various Bible studies.

Roger works with individuals and couples seeking help for:

  • Anxiety/depression
  • Grief
  • Marriage counseling

His counseling philosophy: “People are burdened with both great beauty and tragic brokenness. Living a healthy life requires serious honesty about both categories. The counseling process requires confession, exposes our hunger for grace and asks us to choose love and growth.”

Roger has been married to Jean since 1982 and they have seven children and 13 grandchildren.  Roger is a long-time journaler, avid hiker, and loves the National Parks.

He divides his week between our Main Office in Charlotte and our satellite office in Davidson.
