The name of the Journal embodies its focus.
Good practice relies on constant reflection. The capacity for critical self-reflection is essential
for effective religious leadership and ministry practice.
The disciplines of formation and supervision in ministry supported by this Journal include
clinical pastoral education, supervision in pastoral counseling,
supervised field education and formation in spiritual direction.
The Journal seeks to enhance the work of formation and supervision in
ministry by soliciting articles from a variety of religious and ethnic/cultural perspectives.
We hope the readers will learn from reflecting on their practice as well as the
supervision and formation in disciplines and contexts and
religious traditions different than their own.
