Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care

Overview

Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care is the provision of spiritual care through varied forms of caring ministry to people beyond the walls of the church. Along with spiritual maturity and theological wisdom, you will cultivate the academic knowledge, professional competencies and credentials to provide compassionate listening and immediate support to people in crisis.


The ministry of a chaplain occurs in both public sector and faith based facilities and often in intercultural and multi-faith environments. This is an opportunity to minister to people who may never step inside the door of a church.
