Interfaith Ministry Training
Our founders intention for the clergy program as interfaith ministers is not only to learn as pastoral care providers, but to have a solid community for fellowship and continued education during your spiritual formation as a minister, pastoral counselor, or chaplain. There is an activation and awakened awareness that is transmitted through our teaching and training protocols that can equip ministers to address cultural and pluralistic schisms and experience necessary psycho-spiritual development.
If one has gone through the necessary discernment phase of identifying your calling, one also has to evaluate the role of the Seminary for their path to illumination and pastoral care providers. Either through the Admissions Committee or recommendation from your Spiritual Director, may you find the clergy program you need for the modern way of life.
Careers in spiritual counseling, pastoral care, practical chaplaincy, or interfaith ministry, through our curriculum will have an emphasis in interfaith leadership, interfaith dialogue, interfaith overview of religious studies, urban planning and peace strategies, community social planning, spiritual acts of ministry, ministry discretion, pastoral counseling, spiritual healing, chaplaincy care of the disenfranchised, marriage counseling and interfaith preparation, rites and ceremonies, hospice care, holistic practices and holistic ministry, sacred texts, psychology of ministry formation, externship and practicum. Clinical ministers, advanced clergy practitioners, and chaplains require additional pastoral formation and supervised hours.
There are many ways to be a minister in your community. The Interfaith Seminary will award you with the skills and acumen to break ground and release chains of social injustices as an Interfaith Minister and Interfaith Holistic Faith Advocate.
