Class Description

Designed for Part-Time Local Pastors and Certified Lay Ministers, but open to any person, clergy or lay, this course emphasizes the importance of pastoral care in the small church. It will address the expectations of congregants, how to manage the demands, the ministry of presence and the relationship of pastoral care to leadership. It will also introduce ways to involve laity in congregational care. Topics to be covered include, what good pastoral care looks like, the relationship between caring opportunities and spiritual growth, the importance of reflective listening, and our role in maintaining the privacy of those we serve.

Course content is delivered primarily through two interviews. One is with Rev. George Patterson, the senior pastor of a congregation with 300+ in worship who still visits the hospital five days a week. The second is with Rev. Sheryl Allston, a hospital chaplain who has also served as a small church pastor. There are also two live online sessions where the instructor presents material and interacts with students.

This course is one of the elective courses for the Certificate in Congregational Leadership (CCL) program and is also eligible for 1.0 CEU.
