MIN 141 Biblical and Theological Foundations of Ministry

Sound pastoral practice requires an ability to integrate contemporary questions, experience, and actions with the beliefs, traditions, and practice of the historic community. Although contemporary chaplaincy has been enriched by knowledge and theory from the human and behavioural sciences, it has also been accused of a corresponding neglect of its own foundational disciplines – theology and biblical studies. This course seeks to expose students to this methodological debate and consider the manner in which pastoral practice can be responsibly informed by biblical, theological, and historical perspectives.
