Course Reviews

I believe in refining my chaplaincy skills and the Hospice Chaplaincy program was what I needed. I have learned a lot and recommend it to all my friends who are pursuing chaplaincy work in the hospice context. Maria

Excellent platform and fantastic courses. I was able to take my time, studied at my own pace and completed the courses.  Perfect! Josh

Thank you I learned a lot, Robyn

Thank you so much. Wonderful classes. Immensely helpful. Diane

Thank you, Hospice Chaplaincy! You have renewed my passion for bedside ministry and my dream of becoming a hospice chaplain. Ann

I work as a hospice chaplain and been doing that for 2 years. I did this course for two reasons, for professional development but also because my hospice was paying for it. Dr. Ebema was fantastic, interesting, and helpful. I plan to take any other courses you will provide! Susan

I completely enjoyed the course thank you very much, Terri

Thank you so much. Hope to do more classes in the future. Heidi
