Pastoral Care Program in the Korean Language
The Pastoral Care Program is currently taught in Korean. The program is approved and accredited by the American Association of Pastoral Counselors (AAPC). Persons from all faiths are invited to apply for admission to this program. Students and faculty come from a variety of faith traditions and bring extensive training and wide experience in pastoral counseling and psychotherapy. Most of the faculty is engaged in congregational and community ministry as well as in the practice of psychotherapy.
The mission of the Pastoral Care Studies Program is to enhance the ministry of both clergy and lay persons by giving them the theory and the practical skills offered by psychology. The students learn to think of their ministries as richly informed and formed not only by sound theology but also by counseling theory, concepts of human development, and by participation in group process. The instructional methodology is didactic and experiential. A certificate is awarded after the completion of two years of work as foundational; and a second certificate awarded after three years of advanced work.
