Pastoral Care at its best is Congregational Care, the community of faith relating to and reaching out to one another. We all have a story. We all have had experiences where we have needed the pastor or a trusted friend to walk with us. Caring for others is a privilege, takes time, requires a willingness to give of oneself, and demands of us compassion and confidentiality. Caring for others pastorally is a God-calling.
This course is designed to:
Give you a biblical understanding for lay pastoral care
Give you some basic tools to prepare you for stepping into a ministry with others
Give you a beginning understanding of and a sensitivity to situations and conditions that you may encounter when calling on others.
