Pastoral Studies 2

A look at how the basic concepts, principles and practices of Christian pastoral care from a biblical and theological basis play out in practical ministry. It will involve revision of the understanding of the nature and approaches of pastoral ministry in the church and demonstrations of the pastor’s role as leader, administrator, shepherd, counsellor, and trainer. Practices such as celebration of marriage, pastoral visitation, prayer for baptism of the Holy Spirit, public worship, celebration of Holy Communion, water baptism, preaching and teaching of God’s word etc. will be reflected upon
