Pastoral Theology

Programs


Academic Studies: Pastoral Care

This area includes courses in Homiletics, Christian Education, Worship and Hymnology, Church Management, Pastoral Care, Evangelism and Outreach, and Pastoral Formation. The courses in these disciplines are designed to help students develop skills, methodological theories, techniques, and leadership abilities for the various ministries of the church. Supervised Ministry in a local setting enables the synthesis of all the disciplines to which the students are exposed; hence, it is a requirement in the M.Div. curriculum.
