Introduction to Pastoral Care
Introduction to Pastoral Care is a survey of pastoral care including theological underpinnings, the pastor’s role, pastoral care issues, and tools. Much of a pastor’s time is spent caring for people, so the purpose of this course is to introduce what it means to pastor, while exploring the breadth of pastoral care. We will spend time discovering the distinctiveness of the pastoral role, while building a foundation for the work of pastoral care. In addition, we will briefly explore several common pastoral care topics.
