Proactive Systematic Pastoral Visitation in Shepherding the Contemporary Church
Daniel P Chittock
The objective of this project was to consider continuing, intentional pastoral visitation determining its pertinence to contemporary church life and identifying any effects resulting from this ministry. Given the relative scarcity of this pastoral work the project began with a defense of its propriety. The cardinal consequence of the visitation emerging from the research was the vitality of relationship between pastors and people, and seen as practical and integral to the advancement of a trust relationship of love between shepherd and those shepherded with respect and pastoral care.
