TNAPT is an organization comprised of persons in Tennessee  interested in the profession of pastoral counseling. Learn more >>


TNAPT exists as a collegial support for Pastoral Counselors in the State of Tennessee. We provide opportunities throughout the year for Pastoral Counselors to gather in social gatherings in the three major regions of Tennessee, in continuing education events, and at our annual meeting.

TNAPT provides several continuing education opportunities throughout the year and at our annual meeting to assist Pastoral Counselors and others interested in counseling from a Pastoral perspective to remain effective in their practice and to meet the requirements for state licensure.


TNAPT desires to raise the public awareness of Pastoral Counselors as expertly qualified, theologically trained, mental health providers. TNAPT also continues to function as legal and legislative advocate for Pastoral Counseling in the State.
