A parish-based CPE Unit (Unit 1, Level 1) will begin August 3rd. Most group meetings in this unit will be on Zoom, and some will be held in Union City and Dyersburg. This will be a full-time unit taking place over a 12-week period. All required reading materials are included in the tuition and will be accessible online. A Master of Divinity degree (or the equivalent) is a required part of the application for admission. Although CPE is mainly taken by those who want to be chaplains (since four CPE units are the standard minimum for applying to be a Board Certified Chaplain), CPE is also for people in parish ministry who want to strengthen their professional and pastoral care skills.
