Clinical Pastoral Education

McAfee Students in Discussion

Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) provides the opportunity for students to gain hands-on ministry experience while exploring their own selves.  Through group sessions and individual supervision, CPE allows students to examine themselves and their ministry in a safe and challenging environment.  CPE is an invaluable emotional, spiritual, and professional experience for all students, regardless of their ministerial direction.  CPE can be completed at a variety of locations including hospitals, hospices, and local parishes.  For more information about the CPE experience or to find a CPE near you, please visit the following links:
