For Christ & Community
Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." Matthew 28:18-20
Two important functions of Chaplaincy
·To help individuals and their families in times of crises. ·To help with spiritual needs.
Of all the many duties that chaplaincy may entail, these are the principal responsibilities. Chaplaincy may use different ways to bring about spiritual truths and assistance to an individual family. However, the most important ministry is to simply be available when called upon. Spiritual need is the greatest of all needs and chaplaincy must be able to meet this need. The chaplaincy is a ministry of action rather than word.
Another important part of these functions is to understand the personal religious needs of the individual and to call their own minister to assist as soon as possible, if the family so desires. Those in chaplaincy can then assist their minister if needed.
Chaplaincy is taking the Good News beyond the local church and providing transforming ministry within unique settings.
Among the Military, Medical Centers, Municipalities, Correctional Facilities, Corporations, Skilled Nursing and Senior Housing, Sports, Universities and Colleges, Youth Groups, Schools, Homelessness, Crisis.
