Soul Care for Pastors, Chaplains, and Clinicians
The tradition of the care of souls extends back to Biblical days, when priests, prophets, and wise leaders were called to care for God’s people. Care for the souls of persons and congregations remains a significant ministry of the church. Communal and contextual models of care enliven the tradition of the care of souls today.
The DMin in Soul Care for Pastors, Chaplains, and Clinicians will equip ministers with the theoretical and practical tools necessary for more effective and reflective ministry in care and counseling. It will include a strong emphasis on biblical and theological foundations combined with current theory and best practices. Participants will grow in the ability to reflect as pastoral theologians and in the ability to respond to pressing human needs as skilled caregivers.
