GBHEM will be offering 4 groups for CPE this fall. The complete program will be offered online, with students using their ministry settings as their CPE assignments.

One of the learning groups will be offered on Saturday for increased flexibility in students' job commitments.

There is limited space still available, and applications are open now in case you have candidates who are looking for ways to complete CPE in the upcoming year. More information and a link to apply is available on GBHEM's Clinical Pastoral Education page.
