In the December 2015 issue of A Pastoral Touch, LCMS Specialized Pastoral Ministry (SPM) discusses the opportunity for rostered ministers engaged in Emergency Services Chaplaincy to be grandparented into SPM.
In addition, a plea is put forth for SPM-endorsed individuals to serve as mentors for colleagues who are presenting their material for review and endorsement consideration. Information about SPM peer support groups is also shared.
Insight into the role of a disaster response chaplain is provided, and the dates of other upcoming SPM events and general information about this ministry are included in this newsletter.
