Introduction to Pastoral Care & Counseling – Week 2
January 15, 2019 | 6:00-9:00 PM | Bozeman, MT
Care and counseling are an important aspect of Christian ministry. How we help others spiritually involves a special understanding of the psychological and spiritual make-up of the human person, as well as how to listen and speak to the issues that present themselves.
Introduction to Christian Counseling is one aspect of pastoral ministry, including self-evaluation, exploration of human spiritual/emotional frailty, practice of basic techniques, and understanding movement toward both personal and familial wholeness.
