This synchronous online course (once per month in ZOOM, for 4 meetings total per semester) is required for all students in the Chaplaincy concentration at SKSM. Taken every semester, for 6 semester if you are in the MDiv program (for a total of 9 units)—this class will provide the container for pastoral and professional formation, in preparation for ordination and future service as a chaplain. Topics over the course of the 6 semesters will include: focus on one’s own spiritual path and formation as a chaplain; the requirements of working as a chaplain in multiple settings; how to function pastorally with boundaries and using pastoral authority; group dynamics and organizational behavior; as well as organizational culture, system and relationships. Depending on where you are at in the program will determine the content you will be studying. The monthly meetings will allow you to explore where you are at in your personal formation process along with your peers on the same journey. Enrollment Max: 20. Auditors excluded.
