Course Description
This course is designed to introduce you to pastoral care and the issues that commonly arise in this ministry. Our goal is to address topics that are directly relevant and applicable to your ministry work. Through readings, discussion, and self-reflective exercises, you will:
•    Increase your understanding of the essence of pastoral care.
•    Identify theological, scientific and awareness resources for future use in pastoral care
•    Deepen self-reflection awareness and skills needed to provide thoughtful pastoral care
Course Format
The course runs asynchronously, meaning, we recognize you will participate in weekly activities at your own pace, based on your schedule. Each week, you will be expected to complete an assigned reading, participate in a discussion, respond to two of your classmates’ discussion posts, and complete an assignment.  We estimate that you will spend about two hours weekly on coursework.
Instructor comments and discussion questions will be available each Monday.  There will be TWO live class sessions, February 15 and March 1.
