Together APC and BCCI work to ensure that certified chaplains are the premier professionals in their field.

About the 2022 Annual Conference

The theme for the 2022 Annual Conference presented by the Association of Professional Chaplains and ACPE: The Standard for Spiritual Care & Education is “Freedom, Wonder & Liberation: Anti-bias Practices of Spiritual Care & Education.” This all-virtual conference will be held on May 9-12, 2022. This conference will provide professional development resources for spiritual care professionals to explore anti-bias practices for teaching, healing, and ministering to those in need of spiritual support.

Please, explore the details of this critical program we have planned for our spiritual care professionals, our front-line workers to the pandemic, our military chaplains and more. We believe you will find immediate connection and support for the difficult work that we, as an organization, have chosen for the road ahead.  And, through this work, we will all become our better selves, and be able to provide for those in our care from that spirit.

 Investing in this program means investing in the future!

ACPE and APC seek your help in providing this critical, dynamic educational program and organizational challenge for our professionals in spiritual care.   Your support will help us to bring the dream of healing this hurting world into reality, so that together we may create a better future for all.

Participants will be engaged in progressive conversation, eliciting new directions of competency through plenary addresses, workshops, and inspirational gatherings.  By collaborating with our program through sponsorship or marketing, you will have the opportunity to build relationships, establish new business and connect with existing customers.
