Spiritual Care Series - Pastoral Care Course

Baptist Churches of NSW & ACT have partnered with BaptistCare to make available to Baptist Churches the Health Television Network (HTN) Spiritual Care Series. This is a series of eight programs hosted by Leigh Hatcher, ideal to equip people for pastoral care. The series topics include:

  • Understanding the ageing journey
  • Spirituality in ageing
  • The power of storytelling
  • Grief, loss, death and dying.

The Baptist Churches in conjunction with BaptistCare offer two options for our churches. Firstly you can attend a course to be equipped to minister powerfully to a growing, vulnerable segment of our community. 

Secondly, you can become a trainer for this course. This will allow you to run training for the course in your own context and raise up a team of ministers to impact your community.

The Spiritual Care Series will equip your church to provide quality voluntary pastoral and spiritual care to older and vulnerable Australians. The Series will assist in strengthening your pastoral care teams within your church and also provide your church with opportunities to partner with BaptistCare in the Pastoral Care Volunteers Program. The PCV Program has 14 teams around NSW/ACT visiting people in their homes and care facilities.

This training is specifically for those committed to Christ, have a heart for the elderly and desire to show the love of God to those within and beyond your church community.
