Begins with the Chapter
CPSP is the only fully integrated professional chaplaincy organization and community in the nation (and in the world). What does that mean? CPSP isn't just a member organization or a certifying body or made up of educators. It trains chaplains, conducts board certification and accredits clinical pastoral education and training programs with high professional standards and does so in a uniquely accountable chapter-based model.
CPSP is the only established chapter-based pastoral care organization that provides on going peer review and support to chaplains throughout their career.
