Dr. Gilbert’s primary passion as a professor and in counseling and coaching in private practice is helping families and pastors build and teach a Biblical Sexual Ethic. He also loves the honor of stewarding people’s stories and seeing them draw closer to God by breaking ties with pain from the past. He enjoys preparing students to pursue a master’s degree or to go into psychology or ministry.

Dr. Gilbert’s research includes trauma, sexual abuse, unwanted same-sex attraction, premarital counseling, and sexual issues in marriage. He frequently speaks in chapel and leads a seminar called “Discussions on Sex: Love, Sex, Dating & Marriage,” where students of all ages can ask questions and engage in honest conversations. He readily speaks at local churches, conducts marriage retreats on topics such as sexual health among other topics, and participates in discussions on sexual issues and trauma.

Why Corban

“It is such an honor to be given the responsibility to steward others’ difficult stories well and have the job of drawing them to the foot of the cross for hope and glimpses of the life to come. I am honored to teach on topics such as addictions, trauma, abuse, and many other hard-to-discuss topics. Why? Because of what’s to come after the hard road of facing these issues (whether things done to us or by us). There is amazing hope and freedom in our Lord and Savior. The environment and relationships found at Corban will change your life forever and are of immeasurable value. I also love the process of helping others grow, discover, and develop their Sexual Ethic from a Biblical perspective.”
