Our Chaplains are certified and have a theological education. Chaplains can also be ordained or commissioned by a particular denomination. Traditionally, Chaplains have been associated with representatives of Christian faith; today, the term is used as a representative of any faith. Chaplains work in many fields and can be attached to any profession. From hospitals, military, law enforcement groups, political bodies such as The United States Congress and Senate, to educational institutions, sports teams, and even some corporate and music groups. Chaplains generally are expected to serve in the spiritual needs of others. Not all Chaplains serve in the same areas. Some Chaplains deliver spiritual messages, perform wedding or funeral ceremonies, administer sacraments and provide regular counseling. They may also function as an advocate; as in hospital chaplains who may make a request of a nurse to help meet a particular patient’s need.
