2021 Ridgecrest Chaplaincy Professional Development Training (Registration Opens April, 2021)

Oct. 25-27, 2021 • Ridgecrest, NC

(Registration opens April, 2021)

Every year the Chaplaincy Team of the North American Mission Board hosts several events for Southern Baptist chaplains in the United States & around the world.

Our Chaplaincy Professional Development Training (CPDT) events provide theological and denominational training for Southern Baptist chaplains to maintain a high level of proficiency in chaplain pastoral care ministry. These annual chaplain trainings are a time for spiritual renewal, continuing education, best practices, networking, and fellowship for all SBC-endorsed chaplains who attend.


In order to help keep attendees and staff healthy, NAMB will follow CDC recommendations for gatherings and events. We ask that if you have had a fever greater than 100.4, cough, runny nose, sore throat or trouble breathing within 24 hours prior to the event, please stay home.
