Transforming Chaplaincy’s ongoing supervision comes from its director and from representatives of our partner organizations on the Joint Research Council. These practitioners, scholars, and administrators span chaplaincy disciplines in multiple healthcare settings, research institutions, and educational programs. By drawing together leaders in chaplaincy from around the world and numerous healthcare settings, Transforming Chaplaincy is a truly collaborative initiative that seeks to address the needs and concerns of the entire spectrum of spiritual care.
