Certification of Bible and Theology

"Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled."
— Romans 15:4
Practical problems have theological answers. So the question is not whether or not you’re going to be a theologian, but what kind of theologian you’re going to be.

Most of believers indeed need Advanced pastoral care.
Thus in both Old and New testaments variety of Pastoral functions revealed.. For estancePs23:4. Being with the sheep.Reading by example.That is feeding in green pastures and water.ps 23:1-2. Giving hope,guiding,retiring,serving and protecting are some of key issue to be dealt with in advanced pastoral care.
When dealing with several issues of people especially in hard times,a pastoral care must listen intently and disciver how to assist the client. Psychological skills based on basic need are to be applied where necessary.
Pstoral care in times of crisis andose are to be well and effectively be handled as have both growth opportunities and potentialities. Yet some lead into confusions.
All in all what is expected in the course if personal growth in ministry and making church strong In time of difficulties!
May God bless the Lecturer and Co eorkers of AXX global ministry for Chang our levels of Pastoral care!

I actually struggled with the presenter Matt Jarlett to keep engaged and follow what he was saying . I appreciate this brothers knowledge of scripture but felt his presentations didn’t flow.
The content however made me analyse how I approach others with the Gospel message. Is my use of language and explanation applicable for my audience. It also reminded me that through all my conversations and actions daily I am a witness for Jesus. It has made me focus on being more “Christ like” in my everyday life .
