A New Old Name

Report from our December 2nd Meeting… Well, we can’t make up our minds sometime. Back last May, the CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education) program at PBTS called itself “Shepherd’s Oikos” (household of the Shepherd). But when we decided to form a “real” organizaiton, we came up with the name “Asia Association of Pastoral Care and Supervision” (AAPCS). While that sounds really impressive… somehow “it just ain’t us”. Therefore, we are going back. The Pastoral Care program at Bukal Life Ministries will again be called “Shepherd’s Oikos”. It is headed by Pastor Joel Aguirre of West Baguio Baptist Church (and PBTS). Assisting him is Celia Munson of the Virginia Baptist Mission Board. It will be focusing on three major ministries at this time. They are: CPE … See Moretraining (9 week practicum), Disaster Relief Care Chaplain training (1-3 days), and Shepherd in Every Pew Seminar (1-2 days). Hope to do some symposium work, and an electronic journal (if we have time).
