What is a Missional Counselor? Dan Nelson tells the story of how he experienced a calling many years ago on a dusty dirt road in rural North Dakota. He shares from his heart of how he stepped into that calling, and how he has lived it out over the subsequent years. “Missional” counseling sums up that calling, and this book unfolds what is behind the title. The narrative is written from a professional counselor’s viewpoint, but there is much that will benefit others as well. Being missional in your vocation or career does not only pertain to those in the counseling field. Dan’s purpose in writing this book is to strengthen both a personal and professional sense of calling and mission within you, and to give you the confidence to live it out with a greater understanding of the higher purpose.
