    Clinical Pastoral Education Faculty

    Our faculty draw upon their own faith traditions, pastoral care experience, and learning theory to guide their approach to education, ministry and supervision. Together they believe that CPE is transformative and are committed to cultivating an environment where students learn from their own lives.
