The Academy is an international organization of people who are currently serving or have served in a professional role of leadership in spiritual communities of all sizes and in a variety of settings. We invite collegiality across faith traditions and among the various styles of ministry.  

APC members value honest and affirming dialogue, collegiality and continued enhancement of pastoral skills and competency, all directed towards identifying and addressing the spiritual needs and welfare of their communities, both nearby and globally. Our members seek to give and receive support from their colleagues, both in personal gatherings and through meaningful connections made possible by today’s technological world.
