For Methodists and Wesleyans, the job of the pastor is to lead people to Christ with a focus on a lifelong journey of personal transformation to be more like Jesus. Through the process of pastoral counseling, people are given a better understanding of who they are and how God sees them, as well as spiritual and emotional tools for the journey together.
Pastoral Counseling Course
Whether you are a church pastor, ministerial candidate, or lay leader, our upcoming course on pastoral counseling is designed to help you develop your counseling ministry from a Wesleyan perspective. Starting with the study of God’s Word as our source, we then grow our practice through the resources of the social sciences, counseling practice, and pastoral experience.
