If the COVID-19 pandemic taught us nothing else (and it taught us many things), we learned from it the life-giving potential of online community and the power of technology to keep us connected and to cultivate spaces where we can continue to learn from others about ourselves, the world, and God’s call on our lives.

The ABHMS Center for Continuous Learning is making the most of that potential for online community this fall by offering several cohort-based courses, including our back-by-popular-demand Chaplaincy Skills for Community Ministry certificate course, now enrolling its third cohort.

Ideal for those who are already serving in volunteer chaplaincy roles with first responders, in nursing homes, or in communities affected by natural disaster or violence, Chaplaincy Skills for Community Ministry is a 6-week synchronous course taught by Board-certified and endorsed chaplains. Starting October 3, it meets on Mondays, 6:00 – 8:00 pm ET / 3:00 – 5:00 pm PT. Registration is open now and the fee is just $249.

Also starting in October is a new certificate course on Ministry Entrepreneurship, facilitated by filmmaker and entrepreneur Tony Gapastione. Participants in the cohort will engage questions of innovative ministry in a culture of spiritual curiosity and institutional decline. This 4-week course meets synchronously on Thursdays, 3:00 – 4:30 pm ET / 12:00 – 1:30 pm PT in October, starting on October 6. Enroll now for $99 and explore Spirit-led experimentation and risk in a learning community of other innovators!
