ASSOCIATE OF PASTORAL COUNSELING
1BAM111 – Introduction to Pastoral Care – Part 1
Counseling refers to a process of encouraging growth from within.  It is rooted in a growing awareness of one’s self.  From this should come a less distorted way of seeing persons and relationships and greater courage to accept one’s responsibility to make commitments and decisions. Pastoral counseling represents a fusion of two not altogether discrete sources: pastoral care, i.e. the traditional shepherding function of the Christian minister; and dynamic psychology, which focuses upon the striving aspects of personality as the key to understanding persons. This course introduces the student to Pastoral Counseling as a field within Practical Theology.

2BAM211 – Introduction to Pastoral Care – Part 2
Pastoral care needs to have as its primary focus, the care of all God’s people through the ups and downs of everyday life, the creation of caring environments within which all people can grow and develop to their fullest potential. Mathew 22:37 – 39 reminds one that pastoral counseling points toward a ministry of reconciliation with both God and neighbor. This points toward the uniqueness of Biblically based interventions, in a world where almost every religion exercises pastoral counseling from the perspective of that religion.

Modern counseling has its roots in the spiritual formation practices of the church over the centuries.

The ultimate goal of counseling is to help people become conformed to the image of Christ and to display the fruit of the spirit. This course provides students with an introduction to a theological and psychological model of humans that can guide our understanding of how people develop in either healthy or unhealthy ways.

4BIN180 – Classical Pastoral Care l – Becoming a Minister
Pastoral care is that branch of Christian theology that deals with care of persons by pastors. It is pastoral because it pertains to the offices, tasks, and duties of the pastor. It is care because it has charge of, and is deliberately attentive to the spiritual growth and destiny of persons. This course will teach that Pastoral care is analogous to a physician’s care of the body. Since that particular sphere over which one exercises care is the psyche (soul, anima, the animating, enlivening, energizing, motivating spring of human existence without which a body is a corpse), pastoral care is also appropriately called the care of souls.

More than ever, establishing your church or ministry as an ecclesiastical corporation is of absolute importance. This course includes strategic language that protects your church or ministry from outside intrusion caused by many of today’s public policy laws. Remember, incorporating a church using state forms is easy, but incorporating a church with the language necessary to propel it forward requires a well thought out set of principles and experience. This course helps to lay a foundation that creates an ecclesiastical corporation best suited for church and ministries that wish to be governed according to their hearts’ convictions, as found in the Holy Scriptures.

The articles of incorporation and bylaws are controlling documents that direct how your church is to be operated. Just like our country has a Constitution, and all laws passed by Congress and signed by the President must not violate the Constitution, the acts and decisions of the church management must follow the articles of incorporation and bylaws.

7MFCA627 – How to Obtain 501(c)(3) Status
To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual.  We have learned that the burden of proving that a church meets the requirements of section 501(c)(3) falls upon the donor. Having to prove to the IRS that your church is compliant with the requirements of section 501(c)(3) is a heavy burden for anyone, especially when your church has opted not to file and does not have a 501(c)(3) approval letter. In this instance, if a donor is unable to prove that your church does indeed meet the requirements of section 501(c)(3), then the IRS will most likely determine that their donations to your church are not tax-deductible.
