Who Can Become a Chaplain?
You do not have to be a pastor… anyone who has been called to serve in a ministry can become a chaplain! As an IFOC (International Fellowship of Chaplains) chaplain you will have training in areas such as: providing support to schools, youth, pastors/churches, as a minister in hospitals, nursing homes, to the handicapped, as a first responder, and more. Wherever the Lord has called (or is calling) you to serve in our community, chaplaincy training can enhance your ministry.
The training includes, but is not limited to: stress management; depression/suicidology; domestic violence; grief and loss; Critical Incident Stress Management; Post Traumatic Stress Injury; human trafficking; death notifications; disaster preparedness, Chaplaincy and the Law, and more. When you complete the training, you can choose to use the knowledge informally, or, you can choose to be a licensed Chaplain. You can also choose to be a licensed and ordained Chaplain. (Extra fees apply for the licensing process.)
The next training class in Tucson is February 11-15, 2019, 8 am – 5 pm, on the Pantano Christian Church campus at 1755 S Houghton Road. To register, go to https://www.ifoc.org/event/chaplain-training-tucson-az/. The course is $300 until 1/4/19, and $400 after that date.
Join us as we better prepare ourselves with more tools to serve together in our city.
