PCM 507 Pastoral Diagnostics: Understanding and Evaluating Pastoral Systems Church Dynamics
Faculty: David B. Couturier, OFM. Cap. (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
Effective pastoral planning begins with a proper understanding of the pastoral “system” under analysis. This course will provide students with the skills and tools for a proper “environmental scan” of the forces, both internal and external, that are affecting the church’s potential for growth and change. Students will be introduced to effective ways to identify, collect, analyze and use relevant data for church growth, including contemporary church demographics.
