Global Ministries University Launches a New Community Chaplaincy Certificate Program

SAN JOSE, Calif. - EntSun -- In response to the needs of our time, Global Ministries University announces an exciting new certificate program. The Certificate in Community Chaplaincy Program is designed for any individual who desires to be an agent of healing in their local community. Community-based chaplaincy allows caring citizens to offer the gift of their skillful presence, authentic companionship, and deep compassion to the places of need, hurt, loneliness and discord in their community.

This training and education program is designed specifically for those interested in serving as a volunteer chaplain. After completing this six-month program, they will have the basic knowledge, skills, and experience to work confidently, effectively, and ethically in care-giving situations where spiritual and emotional well-being is central to the task of healing. Most often these situations arise in the presence of illness, aging and dying, but they also arise in many other settings such as community programs dedicated to social service and activism.

The GMU Community Chaplaincy Program is an experiential program composed of three online courses and 40 hours of supervised volunteer chaplaincy work experience. The online courses provide thematic content and provide the core educational curriculum for spiritual caregiving. Each course includes five three-hour Zoom sessions and three one-on-one personal supervisory sessions with the instructor. The Community Chaplaincy Program offers a rich mixture of knowledge-based instruction, readings, experiential exercises, supported reflection, and group/individual consultation about specific care-giving situations.

This CCP is offered in conjunction with Pacific Institute for Essential Conversations (PIEC). PIEC is an accredited learning center for Clinical Pastoral Education and pastoral supervision. Those completing this six-month program will receive a Certificate of Completion in Community Chaplaincy from GMU.
