Developing skilled and reflective practitioners is the goal of ministry studies. As a capstone unit, Reflective Ministry Practice will rely on students' accumulated knowledge and experience base while integrating the comparatively new fields of research of pastoral imagination and pastoral wisdom. Each foci respresents a further responsive equipping for ministry practice in light of a general decline in religious affiliation coupled with institutional and social instability. The unit will also highlight the potential use of a theopoetic approach to, and application within, contemporary ministry practice.
