CHPL 600 - History and Role of Chaplains (3)


This course will examine the history of pastoral leadership in chaplaincy, and the variety of contexts in which chaplains provide pastoral and spiritual care in current pastoral roles. Chaplains, who are pastors in a specialized context, have played a role in providing care in military, healthcare, hospice, corporate, human services organizations, congregational and a variety of other settings. We will explore the images and theology of spiritual care that inform chaplaincy ministry.
