Generally, these cover the following:-Pastoral Care (pastoral care/counseling dealing with commonlife struggles... as individuals, families or groups)-Crisis Care (care to those recovering from traumatic life events)-Member Care (care that is tailored to those in ministry,particularly those serving in the mission field)Our methodology presumes that healing comes holisticially (addressingall aspects of the individual-- including physical, spiritual, mental, andsocial). We also believe that spiritual and biblical guidance is enhancedby psychological insights, and that psychological care is empowered byspiritual and biblical care.TrainingWe periodicaly off a number of training topics, and a number offormats, in addition to CPE.
