Congregational Care

This Luther Seminary Intensive course is open to pastors, lay leaders and parents as part of continuing education. This class is made possible by the Steve Luhman Mental Illness Education Fund.

Providing congregational and community care with persons who have mental illness manifests itself in a myriad of ways. Effective ministry integrates a three-fold model of care, namely the theological, pastoral and medical models. The course will address theological and pastoral insights regarding pastoral care and community care, offer an overview of mental illness from a medical model and share insights into practical implications for moving toward an integrated ministry.

The evening portion of this course features psychiatrists from the University of Minnesota speaking on their area of specialty, including schizophrenia, depression, eating disorders, anxiety and personality disorders.
