An Exploration of Pastoral Care Methods by Elders in the Christian Reformed Churches of Australia Relevant to the Circumstances of Twenty-first-century Australia

Written by Leo Douma

The calling of elders is to be "shepherds of God's flock." Yet across the world elders are struggling to do that well. This very practical investigation identifies the obstacles to pastoral care from the side of the clergy, the elders, and the people themselves. A practical way forward is developed using an approach that enables the local elders themselves to find a solution.

Recommendation

"Douma has provided a great service to the Christian Reformed Church in not only providing the diagnosis of a crisis in pastoral care, but also taking steps toward a solution. . . . Fascinating research which promises to benefit the flock of Jesus Christ." --Tim Witmer, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
