The Rev. Keith Espenshade is a native of Lancaster County. He returned to Lancaster in August 1998 to be Lancaster General Health’s Supervisor of CPE. Keith’s educational training includes a BA from Messiah College and a Master of Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He pastored churches in Illinois and Allentown and is ordained by the Mennonite Church USA.

Keith’s CPE training started at St. Luke’s Hospital in Bethlehem, PA. He then engaged in supervisory training at Asbury Methodist Village, a continuing care retirement community in Gaithersburg, MD. He completed his supervisory training through York Health Systems. He has supervised students since 1997 and is an ACPE Certified Educator.

Keith’s supervisory style invites self-exploration, skill development and relational growth. He supports and challenges students throughout their self-directed learning process. Keith continues to hone his pastoral care skills through on-call and visiting patients. He is frequently accessible to students in addition to normal meeting times.

As the educator, Keith Espenshade will oversee your training and provide both group and individual supervision. Skilled staff chaplains contribute to the CPE students’ learning through their mentorship and teaching:
