WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW
The multicultural world in which Chaplains, Ministers, and Spiritual Directors serve is progressively becoming more secular and pluralistic. Today, spiritual care providers are faced with ministerial challenges never before experienced at such scale – mass tragedy, environmental and climate disaster, pandemic illnesses, and an enormous aging population. The Chaplaincy Institute (ChI) prepares students to minister effectively and creatively in this rapidly changing environment by providing stellar interfaith education, personal vocational discernment, leadership training, outreach opportunities, and strategic partnerships.
CHI TRAINS CHAPLAINS AND COMMUNITY MINISTERS
The Chaplaincy Institute seminary provides an experiential, immersive interfaith educational curriculum that best prepares students to be holistic spiritual leaders and care providers through a wide range of innovative vocational pathways most often in diverse, multi-cultural community environments––palliative care and hospice, hospitals, prisons, military, business, government, environment, industry, education, and crisis situations––not attached to a specific religious institutional place or congregation. Our seminary programs appeal to all those being called to a deeper understanding of our connection to, and impact on, all creation.
INSPIRING, INNOVATIVE, FLEXIBLE, ACTIONABLE
ChI programs are designed to inspire, nurture and educate those who are called to serve in an Interfaith capacity in our increasingly diverse world. Our innovative programs focus on a combination of the study of world religions, an exploration of mystical paths and teachings, and spiritual care and ministry skills… all in a creatively infused context. We offer an ongoing schedule and flexible hybrid distance model of education, and we strive to keep tuition and cost affordable.
