Dr. Musgrave is a National Certified Counselor and
a Licensed Professional Counseling Candidate under State Supervision as he completes his requirement to become licensed by
Though not yet a State Licensed Professional Counselor or therapist
Dr. Musgrave is an ordained minister and pastoral counselor who has been ministering through Christian Counseling
for over eleven years. He spent nine years as a missionary and eleven years as a pastor. On the journey of ministry
he earned a doctorate degree from Trinity Evangelical School in Discipleship Through Small Groups and a doctorate degree from
Amercian Bible College and Seminary in Christian Counseling and has just finished his MA in Mental Health Counseling.
As a pastor Dr. Musgrave became concerned about finding
a better way to help people deal with the problems and issues they were facing that seemed to be causing major difficulties
in their walk with God as well as in their lives. He pursued more counseling courses and referred people to licensed
counselors, but still many people were not getting the help they needed.
He began to look into other avenues to better help people by
attending seminars and schools:
- Dr. Neil Anderson's "Steps to Freedom" - Freedom In Christ
- David and Linda Olson "Listening Prayer."
- John and Paula Sandford's "Video School of Prayer Counseling"
- Elijah House Ministries.
- Art Zeilstra's "Prayer Counseling" Schools - Cornerstone Christian
- Dr. Ed Smith's "Theophostic Ministry."
- Dr. Tom Hawkins "Restoring Shattered Lives Seminar" - Restoration
in Christ Ministries
Out of his experience, study, and
practice he developed a process to teach and use what many call "Prayer Counseling." In addition, in December
of 2000 he began working th Steve Oglevie, learning how to minister to ritual abuse survivors. While he has ministered to over 80 ritual abuse survivors, at present he is referring most non-local survivors
to Steve (208-678-4414) thought he still does some shorter (2-3 day) ministry trips out of state.
Once Dr. Musgrave receives his Oklahoma License as a Licensed Professional Counselor Gentle Shepherd Ministries hopes
to expand the Christian Counseling Project to include other counseling interns and provide more assistance for those who are
underserved and for those rural areas that are underserved regarding counseling and mental health.
Once Dr. Musgrave becomes a Licensed Professional Candidate (approximately August 2009) he will be able to also be a contract
worker for a Tulsa Agency allowing him to see Medicaid clients.
