This course, taught by Robert W. Weise at Concordia Seminary, discusses theology and practice of the church in her Word-Sacrament ministry, with biblical and confessional principles identified and applied for evangelical pastoral practice. A variety of pastoral care areas are considered to demonstrate the ministry of addressing and administering Word and Sacraments to God’s people, individually and corporately, in their human situation. Lectures, written projects, case studies, and discussions form the core of the course, along with pertinent readings in each area.
