Welcome to the Dewey Center for Chaplaincy in Charleston, SC.

The Dewey Center’s purpose is to prepare chaplains and ministry-minded people to be able to perform their ministries more effectively. The two rails CSU will use for equipping are academic courses and formal training.  

On the academic rail, the Dewey Center, as a part of the College of Christian Studies, has developed the first chaplaincy course, “Introduction to Crisis Ministry: What Do I Do When?” which will be taught in the spring of 2021. This course fulfills an experiential learning requirement for current CSU students by creating learning events for providing ministry in hospitals, prisons, first responders’ locations, military bases, educational environments, and industrial sites.

The center’s training rail will provide certifications, continuing education credits, and conferences such as the inaugural Dewey Center Conference in May 2021. This conference will have the Rev. Rob Dewey, the center’s namesake, as a participant and Senior Mentor.
