A Pastoral Care Certificate seminary program is a graduate non-degree option that focuses on developing the skills, gifts, and graces of pastoral work and focuses on the counseling and nurturing of individual parishioners and congregations. A certificate in pastoral care emphasizes the investigation of current theological understandings with regard to the support of families and individuals in crisis and incorporates an orientation toward fostering familial and personal spiritual growth and christian formation as well as the practice of ministry to hurting individuals.
Significant study will go into how your certificate in pastoral care fits into the community through its relationship with secular counseling and therapy, how medical and psychological services can complement pastoral counseling, and what are the best practices and standard methods of pastoral care for congregations, families, and individuals. Certificates in Pastoral Care from seminaries may be pursued before or after earning another degree.
