PCC 502 Avoiding Burnout as a Professional Pastoral Minister
Faculty: Dr. Carole Riley (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
After a grounding in Human Formative spirituality, the lectures via ZOOM if desired and readings/experiences focus on dispositions a pastoral minister develops to establish boundaries with the pastoral team and congregations, to discern wisely job descriptions and to monitor personal stress levels. This course benefits midlife learners and type A personalities in challenging ministerial situations and/or rural areas.
