PBC works in partnership with Waverley Abbey College (UK) through our offering of the Australian Contemporary Chaplaincy Program. The original program is a global leader in training people for ministry services in a non-congregational setting across the Western world.
Developed in 2020 by Dr Keith Foster, PBC’s own Dean of Counselling and Chaplaincy, Dr Shannon Hood, has further developed it to suit an Australian context.
Anyone looking to study with PBC might wonder what value a chaplaincy qualification could provide outside of the ministerial context.
While it’s easy to recognise the inherent value of this kind of work, the practical applications of PBC’s Chaplaincy qualification can be harder to see. But becoming a qualified chaplain has an immense amount of reward, both in a personal and professional sense.
The role of a chaplain is vital in offering spiritual, emotional and faith-based support to individuals from all walks of life, particularly during times of crisis or challenge.
It is not a role that is tied to one singular pillar, but rather a complementary qualification that can support you across various areas.
Our students have found their calling through chaplaincy qualifications that have led them to working in areas such as:
Qualified chaplains have unique skills that they can apply to numerous situations and career pathways.
When you enrol to study chaplaincy with PBC, you’ll develop strong communication and conflict resolution skills that will guide you to effectively counsel and support people in need.
You’ll also have the opportunity to learn alongside fellow students from diverse backgrounds and become a highly valued member of our PBC community.
The inherent value of becoming a chaplain in any form lies in the gift of supporting individuals through highly vulnerable times, knowing you have provided them with faith-based support and spiritual guidance.
If you’re feeling called to become a qualified chaplain, you’ll gain adaptable skills and the opportunity to provide a form of care that goes far beyond simply medical and psychological support.
Rather, you’ll be able to address the deeper elements of our human experience, promoting healing, resilience and connecting on a profound level with your clients.
