Our Mission

The Institute for Clinical Pastoral Training (ICPT) endeavors to maintain and demonstrate the highest level of effective professional formation in various ministry environments. Our mission is to emphasize professional growth in ministry and protect the dignity of our trainees and those they encounter in ministry service. ICPT offers Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) to a wide range of individuals with differing religious beliefs and traditions. It is intentional that we treat each student trainee with respect and acceptance in the context of their own religious traditions. It is our goal to allow each trainee to grow within chaplaincy ministry and service to others consistent with these beliefs and traditions. Our desire is to provide personal and professional integration of peer-group feedback through CPE, in varied clinical settings.

Our Vision

This organization serves as a radiant beam of love, grace, and compassion in the world; igniting others and revealing the truth, peace, and understanding.
