I was recently asked by a pastor friend for some resources on pastoral visitation. Here are some online resources I’ve collected over the years and some book recommendations. For more online resources and book recommendations on numerous subjects, click here.
Visit the Sick: Ministering God’s Grace in Times of Illness by Brian Croft
Pastoral Visitation: A Pocket Manual by David Short and David Searle
Serving in Church Visitation by Jerry Stubblefield.
There are also good chapter-length treatments in pastoral theologies such as:
The Pastor’s Book: A Comprehensive and Practical Guide to Pastoral Ministry by Kent Hughes and Douglas O’Donnell.
On Being a Pastor: Understanding Our Calling and Work by Derek Prime and Alastair Begg
The Reformed Pastor by Richard Baxter
The Christian Ministry by Charles Bridges.
