When was the last time you opened the newspaper to read about the latest school shooting or turned on the news only to hear about the latest wildfire burning out of control and threatening the homes and lives of so many families? What you don’t normally read or hear about are the many chaplains who are volunteering their time and effort to help others during their time of need.
By definition, a chaplain is simply a "minister in the workplace" and can therefore have an extremely wide range of environments, from full time chaplaincy, to part time disaster workers. Chaplains can serve in schools, congregations, law enforcement, emergency services, hospitals, corporations and more.
As such, the services that Chaplains provide are far reaching and varied providing counseling, education, advocacy, life improvement skills, juvenile, court and family mediation, emergency, disaster & crisis services, recovery training, and providing a bridge between the secular and spiritual environments of community life throughout the world.
