Financial Support for CPE of Central CA 

Clinical Pastoral Education is a key component of the professional training
and certification for hospital, jail and prison chaplains as well as for clergy
caring for those who have special needs in a time of crisis. Our purpose is to provide experience based theological education for seminarians, clergy,
faith community nurses, and lay-persons of diverse cultures, ethnic groups
and faith traditions. 


The lack of local educational opportunities results in a shortage of qualified individuals who can provide professional pastoral care to our valley
neighbors and families. Recognizing this disparity between the great need
for qualified pastoral care and the lack of educational opportunities, CPE of Central California set out to bring an accredited training program to central California. 


                                 Training Center

CPE of Central California is a collaborative representing hospitals, faith communities and local educational institutions responding to train and keep dedicated professional chaplains here in our own communities. Students will receive training consisting of both academic and direct clinical supervised experiences.
