The CPE Program at Pacific Health Ministry gives strong emphasis
to direct clinical practice to enhance spiritual care skills and provide
opportunities to experience people from many backgrounds. Like all
CPE Programs, learning happens in a small group seminar setting that includes
review of pastoral practice, group dynamics, didactic presentations and
experiential events with Hawaii institutions and community organizations.
The Supervisors put strong emphasis on developing individualized learning
programs to fit specific needs. This is to craft a training program
that will prepare students for ministry service following their CPE experience.
