Highlights of the Pastoral Care Stream
The Presence-Based Church specialisation combines contextual theological praxis, tertiary level applied theological study, and supervision and mentoring by experienced practitioners including:
Serving and Practical Ministry – Participating in intentional expressions of church community ministry and mission development in a church or organisation context. This will involve eight hours per week over a full year or a shorter more intense period of a minimum six weeks, or joining a living community for the year.
Studying – Tertiary level study in Mission, Bible & Theology and Ministry including supervision and formational learning times throughout the year within a cohort of students.
Supporting – Supervision and mentoring by experienced practitioners, support and feedback through Carey’s well-established Field Education process, and journeying with others for mutual support and resourcing.
