Aging, Mission and Ministry
Aging, Mission and Ministry [PAST / CHED 0670]
A theological, psycho-social (cultural) and spiritual foundation for ministry in an aging world, both locally and globally. Approximately one third of the course is focused on understanding the aging reality theologically, demographically, developmentally and spiritually, one third on building appropriate ministry programs as a response, and the last third on developing the skills needed for seniors’ ministries. This course is designed for pastors, missionaries, lay workers, mid-life professionals in transition, early retirees, and all who seek to show compassionate honour to older adults.
Course includes off-campus visits into the community (nursing homes, etc.) to develop awareness and skills.
