What Do Interfaith Chaplains Do? An Open House with Dean Angie Arndt

  • ChIME (at the Portland New Church) 302 Stevens Avenue Portland, ME, 04103 United States (map)

Please help ChIME find the next wave of Community Chaplains at this Open House!

In these times, when stress seems to be mounting for so many people, Community Chaplains are needed more than ever. As we begin our enrollment period for Fall 2017, please consider whether you, or someone you know, is a prospective Community Chaplain.

Community Chaplains serve as a listening presence, helping people to find THEIR spiritual center, in times of celebration and times of crisis.

Our two-year Interfaith Chaplaincy training program is designed for adults with other job and/or family responsibilities. 500 hours of faculty contact are spread across two academic years, with meetings one night a week and one weekend a month.

You can call ChIME at 207-347-6740 or email to recommend someone ... including yourself....for our program. We'd be happy to help you discern whether Community Chaplaincy is right for you. 

Or invite a prospective student to one of our monthly open house evenings, and come with them to explore what ChIME is all about.
The next Open House is Thursday, February 23 from 5:30 to 7 pm at 302 Stevens Avenue in Portland, in the ChIME classroom. The topic is "What Do Interfaith Chaplains Do?" and the host is Dean Angie Arndt. We look forward to seeing you!
