Small Group for Chaplains Actively Recruiting Participants

The Center for Pastoral Wholeness & Chaplaincy Studies at Memphis Theological Seminary, in collaboration with The Center for Faith and Imagination, is now actively recruiting chaplains to participate in a Chaplains Only small group.  The group will meet monthly, or at a pace negotiated with the participants.  The focus is spiritual sustenance for chaplains as you go about the rigors of your work, recognizing that for all clergy, including chaplains, the capacity to be fully present in ministry is in direct relationship with your own practice of spiritual disciplines and self-care.

Depending on responses, our hope is to begin by February, 2023, either in person or online.  If you are a chaplain, and a journey like this is of interest to you, contact Dr. Johnny Jeffords, Director of CPWCS, at, or call at 901.334.5809.
