Enriching Ministry offers a more detailed and wide-ranging overview of pastoral supervision and its relationship to other disciplines and fields of study.
It describes an approach to supervision which is theologically rich, psychologically informed, contextually sensitive and praxis based.
It is intended for those seeking support for their own ministries as well as for those who supervise in the areas of initial and continuing ministerial formation; healthcare; executive coaching, spiritual direction.
The final chapters consider the professional development and training of supervisors.
This timely volume of essays will indeed enrich the ministries of all who read it. Written by reflective practitioners for those labouring in the fields of congregational and chaplaincy leadership, it is theologically rooted and psychologically informed, as well as being full of practical wisdom. It will be an invaluable resource for all who wish to grow in vocational confidence, ministerial competence and theological understanding through the supervisory process, both as giver and receiver. A transformative read, especially valuable for clergy-in-formation as they prepare to assume oversight of ever-larger groupings of churches. -- Anne Tomlinson "
Enriching Ministry" provides pastoral supervision with a seminal work. Through its 12 contributing authors - all at the forefront of developing and delivering quality pastoral supervision - it comprehensively maps the terrain of this emerging discipline. It combines scholarly treatise with moving accounts of what pastoral supervision means to individual ministers. It establishes the subject firmly within a theological base, incorporating what psychological concepts have to offer. Risks and creativity of the process are explored and contextual issues considered. A rich yet digestible feast of a book; an essential read for all concerned with training and sustaining those in ministry. -- Gill Carding
Pastoral supervision is still a young discipline in the UK. This fresh and exciting collection of essays, rooted in a lived theology, reveals our growing confidence as pastoral supervisors. As I read I found myself inspired, challenged and encouraged in my practice. This is not just a book about how to learn more technical skills, but a book which encourages us to take risks in our supervisory work and find we are met by grace. -- Bob Whorton
