CoPs in ACPE will serve as a flagship activity for our association and anchor us in our grassroots tradition. An ACPE CoP is a group of eight or more practitioners in the field of spiritual care and education, with a common sense of purpose, who agree to work together to cultivate and enhance community, share knowledge, create best practice and foster innovation. CoPs exist to support and speak to the mission of ACPE as The Standard for Spiritual Care and Education.
