Encourage the wellbeing of others as they navigate various stages of their lives by offering them effective emotional, spiritual and practical support. Pastoral ministers take a leadership role in churches, prisons, hospitals and elsewhere in the community. From teaching Sunday school to being there for someone going through tough times, pastoral ministers provide invaluable care and counseling. During your practicum, you’ll acquire the interpersonal and group facilitation skills you need to be a significant support. By completing the certificate in Pastoral Ministry, you’ll be well-placed to work towards your Bachelor’s degree in Theological Studies.
