This is the third course in the Institute for Discipleship’s Certificate in Congregational Leadership. 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.
