Fun in July

We had a busy first two weeks in July (2016). We had two simultaneous programs (not including the completion of Summer 2016 CPE program, that will have graduation on July 18, 2016).

July 4-14, we had training of 5 as part of our Ministry Heartlink partnership. Bob, Celia, and Edgar worked with this from Bukal Life Care, along with Dr. Waldo Raposa, Mosendes, and others from Minister Heartlink.

July 2, 9, and 16, we had Hospital Visitation Program training at Christ Life Community Church. Training was led by Bob, Celia, and German. We are greatly appreciative of the hospitality of Ptr. Boni and team.

  • Balance between Theology and Psychology
  • Balance between Historical and Clinical Pastoral Care
