Workshop for counselors 2020/21

Well-grounded - oriented towards the biblical new creation - natural and yet very supernatural - practical

Pastoral counseling training includes pastoral counseling ministry, with an introductory block (3 days) and 6 training blocks (13 days). The well-grounded and practice-oriented topics bring about change in one's own life and teach how the counselor can use various tools to serve people in conversations. The entire training complies with the requirements of ACC Level I "Accompanying Pastoral Care". Upon completion of the training on a qualification day in the Schleife, there is the possibility to obtain accreditation for ACC certification. You can download the detailed flyer here or request it at the Secretariat of the Stiftung Schleife.

Further information on topics, emphases and practice can be found here.

Due to the tightened protective measures of the federal government, you must wear a mask inside the Schleife building. Please note the protection concept »
