Training Opportunities at PBTS in Pastoral Care

And that is not actually all. For 2nd Semester, we also have two “regular” PC courses at PBTS.

-Intro to Pastoral Care and Counseling. Taught by Dr. Lyn Montecastro (Master’s level course)

-Interpersonal Relationships. Taught by Mrs. Celia Munson (Bachelor’s level course)

Regular courses start the week of October 9, although enrollment is the week before.

Theological Reflection Presentation

With Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) along with other pastoral care programs that utilize cases, we expect trainees to include theological reflection. Some are good at this, while others struggle. However, doing this well, is not only good for self-growth, but also gaining pastoral identity, and ministerial competence.

Changes at our Office

We have been able to make a few improvements at our office. New furniture and rug added to the Counseling Room. In the office area, a new display table and wide screen monitor was added. This allows us to do training seminars here, especially when we open up our folding wall for larger groups. Looking forward to comments on the changes.
