The purpose of this manual is to provide information, education, and training to improve professional competencies of chaplains, based on Christian biblical/gospel and divinity principles and to establish a platform from which Christians may communicate their faith. It is also to introduce the potential chaplaincy candidate to the opportunities that exist for chaplaincy and to the variety of stressors for which the chaplain must be prepared to handle.
Individuals, churches, missionaries, etc., can teach their chaplaincy candidates, provide them with required experience in accordance with their by-laws and denominational regulations, and then certify the candidate as a chaplain.
This manual also aims to offer professional chaplaincy assistance to individuals, missionaries, and organizations aiding, directing and teaching persons during their times of need and/or crisis. Its services are open to all persons of any and all faiths. Its overall mission is to provide these services as Christian chaplains and ministers and to spread the biblical Word through our writings and speaking presentations.
What is a chaplain? A chaplain can be a (non) denominational cleric or a lay representative who is appointed to provide spiritual leadership and counseling to members of an institution and/or attached to a secular institution such as
(1) law enforcement/military chaplaincy; (2) nursing homes, hospice, and long-term care facilities chaplaincy; (3) hospital chaplaincy; (4) industrial/occupational workplace chaplaincy; (5) prison/jail chaplaincy; (6) educational chaplaincy; (7) resort and mall chaplaincy; (8) airport and cruise line chaplaincy; (9) correctional facility chaplaincy; (10) homeland security and FEMA chaplaincy; (11) federal transportation chaplaincy; (12) sports/race track chaplaincy; (13) colleges/universities/ national park chaplaincy; (14) home fellowships; (15) corporations/companies; and (16) missionary chaplaincy.
