Chaplaincy Training Course


Add your name to the waiting list for next year’s class:


In partnership with Crisis Response International (CRI),, we are pleased to present the following Chaplaincy training.

This course is open to everyone, with no prerequisites. It’s designed for anyone wanting to be equipped to minister  both in crisis situations and in their community. Both KTI and CRI strongly value meeting the practical needs of people in crisis, and we believe that meeting emotional and spiritual needs are just as important, if not more so. We therefore encourage everyone, not just those desiring to be chaplains, to get equipped in the topics presented here.

The course is broken into two sections – Basic and Advanced. The Basic section includes a simple introduction to Chaplaincy and crisis ministry, training in emotional and spiritual first aid using a 7 step model developed by CRI, sessions on loss and grief, theology of suffering, self care, and the importance of preparing your own heart for this work.

The Advanced section includes training from six different highly qualified instructors on subjects such as basic disaster chaplaincy, physiological first aid, stress, grief, theology of trauma, compassion fatigue, PTSD, healing prayer, self care, and much more. It contains four times more information than the Basic section.
