This class is designed to help you establish a clear theology and practice of pastoral counseling. Pastoral counseling from a Wesleyan perspective accepts the wisdom gained from the study of God’s word as our source and turns to the resources of the social sciences, counseling practices and pastoral experiences. As a pastor who does counseling, you will gain the most by actively participating in the discussions of this class as well as preparing for the case studies. Although we will protect the dignity and confidentiality of our people, raise questions that will answer specific needs of the people you counsel and allow this class to prepare you to help them and the many who will follow like them.
