More on the demand for spiritual care
With the idea of covenantal pluralism, we emphasize that chaplaincy work is not just rooted in a single religious tradition but operates across a wide range of religious traditions and differences. With demand, we shift the conversation to better understand those who work with chaplains in various contexts, as well as those chaplains serve and how they experience chaplain care.
This project explored how executive decision makers understand chaplaincy and spiritual care, as well as how they imagine opportunities for spiritual care providers in response to pressing issues in healthcare in the years ahead.
We offer a variety of resources that educators and administrators of educational institutions may find helpful. We hope that institutions will gain a greater awareness of the needs of hiring organizations and prepare chaplains to serve those organizations.
