This course is eligible for transfer into Lincoln Christian University (LCU) MA programs. This course will extend throughout the entire semester.

4. PC600 Pastoral Care and Counseling by Dr. Timothy Sumerlin. This course attempts to open avenues of insight and service through pastoral care and counseling. The students explore Biblical, historical and contemporary materials to apply to the pastoral function with a healthy interface of theology and psychology. Numerous specific applications will be made in such areas of concern as crisis intervention, marital, premarital, and family counseling, and cross-cultural counseling. The students' own lives and experiences are seen as a base for developing competence in a healing counseling ministry. This course is eligible for transfer into Lincoln Christian University MA programs and will also apply to our upcoming new MA in Christian Counseling program (more information coming on this soon). This course will be a concentrated course of around 8 weeks. The exact dates will be announced later.
