About This Course
The Undergraduate Certificate in Pastoral Care provides students with a foundational knowledge of the purpose and practice of Christian pastoral care and helps students to develop resources and skills that will help them be more effective pastoral carers in their ministry context.
The certificate is targeted at those Christians who find pastoral care to be a main focus of their ministry, in either a paid or volunteer capacity (e.g. home-group leaders, community outreach, mentors, spiritual directors). No prior study required.
