Clinical Pastoral Education is theological learning through experience in a clinical setting, under the supervision of a certified CPE Training Supervisor/Educator.  CPE provides a process for integrating various aspects of theological education into a personal theology and professional style of ministry.  The goal of CPE is to give opportunities to function as ministers while receiving guidance to render pastoral care.  In the process, one’s own unique gifts in ministry are called forth, recognized, and strengthened.


The main educational purposes of this program are to provide opportunities to render pastoral care to individuals under stress in multi-institutional settings, to develop pastoral identity, and to master a body of interpersonal skills and academic materials related to pastoral care functions.  In the process of fulfilling these purposes, the student/ trainee will be able to set individualized learning goals and evaluate theological and pastoral presuppositions and procedures within the context of relationships with a chaplain supervisor, student colleagues, potentially staff chaplains and professionals from other disciplines.
