Pastoral Supervision defined

Pastoral Supervision is about collaborating with another person to prayerfully pursue God’s agenda for transformation through active reflection on your ministry practice.

It is about thinking biblically about your ministry practice to enjoy God’s work of change in the day-to-day. It is a relationship outside your ministry context that offers encouragement and support to persevere in the rigours of ministry life. The supervision relationship is characterised by trust, confidentiality, voluntary accountability, support and freedom to explore issues arising in your ministry.

Challenging pastoral situations, difficult ministry team relationships, personal struggles and sins,  ethical practice, life and work balance, self-care strategies, development of ministry skills and offloading of distressing incidents are examples of some of the issues that can be brought to supervision.
