What is Pastoral Counseling?
Pastoral counseling combines the insights and principles of Christian faith and theology with the knowledge and skills of
the behavioral sciences. Pastoral counseling is an intensification of the general ministry of the church. Its primary
goal is that through the process of counseling conversations, and through Godís presence in this work, persons will experience
increasing wholeness centered in Christ. Because of the presence of Godís Spirit, pastoral counseling conversations are more
accurately understood as "trialogue" rather than as "dialogue".
