This fall the Oates Institute will present a major online conference addressing these questions at the intersection of healthcare and congregation, workplace and community. The conference will feature three overlapping tracks for chaplains; counselors, spiritual directors, and social workers; and congregational leaders. It will provide continuing professional education credit for these professions.

Participants will include:    

  • Healthcare chaplains
  • Workplace chaplains
  • Military chaplains
  • Pastoral counselors
  • Parish and congregational clergy
  • Social workers

Participants and presenters will predominately be from around the United States and Canada but will also be from around the world, especially Great Britain and Australia.
