Family Life Ministry
— COUN 0669 (3)
Designed to acquaint the student with a basic understanding of congregational ministry to families, integrating a theological and ecosystems perspective, a social science theory that views the family as a system within a system. The student is encouraged to reflect upon his/her personal theology of marriage and family and conclude with a philosophy of family ministry. The family within the context of congregational life is addressed, and the assessment of congregations and the designing of a family ministry program for a specific congregation is required. Care group material, communication skills, conflict resolution training, and problem-solving skills are introduced. In addition, the student will be exposed to specific marital, parenting, and premarital issues and support programs, peer counselling programs, and recovery programs. Same as PAST 669 and YMIN 669.
