The Living Wholeness Institute,Brisbane Campus, Brisbane School of Theology

We’re excited to announce a new partnership between Living Wholeness and Brisbane School of Theology. Our aim is to provide multi-level training for God’s people who are seeking to support, help and provide care for those around them, whether in a congregational, mission, ministry or professional setting. These courses lead to a LW/BST certificate of course completion.

Bearing one another’s burdens

God’s word urges his people to be caring for those around them. As Paul wrote, “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Gal. 6:2; ESV). There are many reasons why this does not always happen. Lack of support, lack of confidence, lack of skill, and the lack of professional resources all can keep churches and God’s people from providing the care, support and counselling that people need.

The burdens people carry may involve medical conditions, mental health issues, life and family crises, bereavement and persistent sin. Some burdens need the kindness and encouragement of a thoughtful friend, others need professional intervention. Every church needs a network of pastoral care.

These courses offer personal transformation and training aimed to assist these different levels of response to need. You may want to be a better friend; you may have responsibility for providing care. Or you may be a mental health professional facing these issues daily. One of these courses are for you.

Location

The courses are offered on the campus of Brisbane School of Theology, 1 Cross St, Toowong. Parking is available on Wool St, adjacent to Anzac Park.
