Teaching Leaders to Provide Christ-Like Ministry
Christian ministry involves interacting with people who have a variety of issues and concerns. They need care and they come to you for help. Often, the sincere and compassionate minister is not sufficiently trained to deal with the many personal, relational and spiritual problems that occur in the lives of the adults, youth and children they serve.
Capital Seminary & Graduate School’s Christian care program prepares you to provide care that is based on the ministry of Jesus, scripture and reliable caregiving practices. You will then be equipped and ready to meet the needs of individuals and families when they reach out to you for assistance.
Students are taught by experienced professors with both ministry and mental health training. Additionally, students develop an understanding of people and common problems from a biblical perspective while incorporating useful behavioral science insights, techniques and methods for care-giving. There is also a significant lab/ministry experience component where students are directly overseen, mentored, evaluated and assisted by course professors.
“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” – Galatians 6:2
“My journey to obtain my MA in Christian Care is more inspiring and meaningful since I’ve become a chaplain. I took a couple of breaks before, and I’m glad I did – and some instances had too – but it’s now it’s much more meaningful in my life and in other lives.”
– Chaplain Michele Reynolds (’19)
