Abstract

One of the most powerful tools available to pastors in ministry, is the simple act of visiting families in the neighbourhood. The spiritual blessings resulting from such visits, are numerous. Family feud is settled, intractable problems between neighbours are resolved and home fellowship is encouraged. Truly, the pastor cannot fully understand the living conditions of his members if he does not visit. Although seminary training always equips pastors with a variety of tools, such as biblical languages, homiletics, church planting and church management. However, one area that pastors are ill equipped is the area of pastoral care. This ministry offers the cleric an opportunity to reach the neighbourhood and minister to families in a special way
