Lighten the Darkness
Rekindle the Hope


As part of San Francisco Night Ministry the CPE program offers spiritual care services to people on the streets at night in San Francisco. It also helps staff the Crisis Telephone Line, which operates every night of the year. Twice per week worship is provided outside at Open Cathedral. 
San Francisco Night Ministry CPE program is fully accredited by ACPE, Inc. 

In general, a unit of CPE is 400 hours. We divide those hours into 300 hours of ministry experience and 100 hours of individual and group supervision plus instructional activities. 
Typically when the CPE student is doing the work of the Night Minister on the streets of San Francisco the shift begins at 9:45 PM and ends at 2:15 AM. When the CPE student is doing the work of the Crisis Line Counselor the shift begins at 9:45 PM and ends at 2:15 AM. When the CPE student is involved with the Open Cathedral the time usually is 2:00 – 4:00 PM on Sunday and 5:30 – 7:30 PM Thursday. Every Tuesday a bible study is held from 6:00 – 8:00 PM for homeless people. The CPE student will participate in the bible study.
During the first half of the CPE unit the CPE student will always accompany one of the staff night ministers when meeting with people on the streets at night. This pairing with a staff night minister will continue until it is determined by the night minister that the student is sufficiently acclimated to the work of the night minister on the streets of San Francisco. The CPE student will then be paired with another CPE student for ministry on the streets. 

When the CPE student is working as a Crisis Line Counselor the student will be paired with a Crisis Line Counselor who has previously worked as a counselor. When it is determined that CPE student is sufficiently acclimated to the work of the Crisis Line then they may be paired with someone who is learning or is new to being a Crisis Line Counselor. 

CPE facilitates the development of pastoral formation, pastoral competence, and pastoral reflection. A pastoral and collaborative learning style is used, seeking to identify the areas of needed growth and to support the strengths each student brings to the program. 

We expect openness to learning and responsible functioning in an interfaith approach to ministry. 
Students are challenged to provide a spiritual care, listening presence to parishioners experiencing crisis in what may be perceived as the impersonal setting of the streets of San Francisco. Spiritual care to all people encountered is another important aspect of the CPE Night Minister’s role.
Students will receive extensive experience in crisis counseling, working closely with other professionals providing care to the marginalized in society. 
We provide an opportunity to explore the impact of one’s family of origin on ministerial function. 
The San Francisco Night Ministry enjoys a 50 + year history in San Francisco and a citywide reputation for providing compassionate care to people. 

Please visit the SF Night Ministry web site to read more about the ministry and to view videos which describe aspects of the SF Night Ministry. ( The position will begin September 1, 2018.
