Chaplaincy Ministries

What Is Chaplaincy?


Chaplaincy is an expression of ministry that places chaplains inside various settings, which include healthcare agencies, corporations, prisons, public safety agencies and the military services.

Chaplaincy is an extension of the local church reaching into our religiously diverse and multi-cultural society providing spiritual care to people.  Chaplains practice the pastoral functions of pastor, teacher, evangelist, counselor, and administrator as they represent Jesus Christ, the church, and the denomination from “inside” the using agency.

Our Mission

To serve others in the name and through the power of Jesus Christ.

Our Vision

To reach people who because of circumstances are hidden or out of reach of most local churches.
