Under the supervision of TACC’s Director of CPE, ACPE Supervisor Rev. Karen Miller, the Center offers Level I/II CPE as an intensive Summer unit (11 weeks) and as two extended, 15-week units in the Fall and Spring. Admission to the program is based on the completion and evaluation of the CPE application and a possible admission interview.
To apply for CPE training, we require a non-refundable $60 application fee, a minimum of a 10-page application document and a potential interview after the application has been reviewed by an ACPE supervisor. You will find the ACPE Application form for Level I CPE on the ACPE website. You can also find the CPE application here. Please email all application materials to email@example.com as we are working from home at this time.
We begin training in January, May and September each year. The spring and fall units are 15-week extended part-time units (18.5 hours of ministry in the community and 6-8 hours of educational time). The summer unit is an intense 11-week full-time experience with 32 hours a week of ministry and 8 hours of educational time.
Level I: Addresses basic competencies and issues of pastoral reflection, pastoral formation, pastoral identity and functioning in one or more units of CPE. A CPE student must meet Level I CPE outcomes, as documented in the supervisor’s evaluation, as a prerequisite for acceptance in Level II CPE.
Level II: Addresses advanced competencies and issues of pastoral functioning, reflection, and integration. The goal is to accumulate four units of CPE, including CPE Level I units completed in one or more authorized ACPE Centers.
