Semester 2 unit: Rural Ministry

Lecturer:
Reverend Dr Geoff Leslie

Interact with and observe agricultural life as a basis for theological reflection on agriculture, the land, social and family life, the environment and economics in a rural setting. Explore needs, opportunities and appropriate models for ministry in rural Australia, including in times of natural disaster. Out of reflections on these themes using the Bible and contemporary discussions, appropriate models for pastoral care, church life, community involvement and support in times of natural disaster will be developed and evaluated.
