Clinical Pastoral Education
Hear What Our Former Residents Say About Their Experience at Baylor
The experience and supervision gained to the minister in these situations is invaluable to the resident's future ministry in the local parish, institution, or service. Here are a few testimonies from our former residents.
"My CPE experience provided a safe environment for me as I wrestled with my theology and sought to identify and claim my pastoral identity and authority. I gained new images of God and learned to use my life experiences as a resource for my ministry."
Jennifer Fairbanks, Houston, Texas
"CPE helped me to deepen my understanding and expand my outward awareness. I highly recommended this training to any pastor who desires to minister to people on a personal level, especially in crisis intervention."
Ines Lowe, Brazil
"Baylor's considered emphasis on the clinical method of learning in CPE provided me with an excellent opportunity to refocus on the two imperatives of meaningful and effective pastoral care: knowing God, and knowing myself."
Gabriel Ojih, Ghana, West Africa
"Baylor CPE provides an international atmosphere, multi-disciplined environment, and cultural/racial sensitive program to enrich my learning experience. Not only did I learn to become a minister, but I also learned how to become a person."
Len Liu, Taiwan
