Course Description

MTC010-SED Spiritually Caring for Your Community

This course is designed to provide the student with an overview of the “shepherding” gift and function in the Body of Christ. At its most basic definition, “shepherding” others involves having the knowledge, giftedness, and desire to deal gently with those whom we are called to serve, learning to “carry each other’s burdens,” to “love as we have been loved” as well as to care for those people for whom the love of God becomes real and “incarnated” in acts of love and service.

8 weeks / 16 hours
