Spiritual Care Specialist Training Program

The Association for Clinical Pastoral Education in partnership with the New England Pastoral Institute presents its Spiritual Care Specialist training program (SCS). This program offers people working in some form of pastoral care ministry an opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the kinds of concerns around which people seek pastoral care, learn pastoral care techniques to address these concerns, and broaden their own formation in ministry.

Boundary Awareness Training in November

The Conference will be offering a day of Boundary Awareness training on Thursday November 14th. Location TBD. Please keep in mind that all authorized ministers MUST take Boundary Awareness training once every three years. If there is enough need, we may offer BAT a second time with date and place TBD. You may also complete BAT in a neighboring Conference or in some cases with a partner denomination. Please talk with Lynn or Paul to make sure the training is comparable and will count towards your three year training requirement.
