PAS 430 Senior Seminar to Pastoral Ministry

This course culminates the foundational fields of study related to pastoral ministry. In particular, this course will help students collate their thinking on pastoral ministry over the course of the entire program. Attendant with discussions and reading, this course will provide seminar-style space for students to work on their main documents for pastoral ministry (i.e., philosophy of ministry, doctrinal statement, ethical/position papers, conversion, call narrative, resume/CV, etc.), enhance their thinking on various pastoral issues, prepare for mock ordination, reflect on meaningful insights and progress throughout the time in the program, and anticipate the transition of life and ministry after graduation from the program.
