Product DetailsHandbook for Chaplains: Comfort My People

CHAPLAINS PROGRAM
The Chaplain's program at Promise Christian University prepares men and women for the ministry of a Chaplain.  Chaplains are involved in ministry outside the four walls of the church.  

Chaplains serve in military, volunteer veteran organizations, police, fire, hospital, prison, hospice and now in demand as corporate chaplains.  As a volunteer chaplain, you do not need to meet the qualifications required of an active military chaplain. 

This certificate program is designed to introduce you to the "ministry" of a Chaplain which applies to all areas of chaplaincy.

Chaplains are in a unique position, unlike counselors, they are prepared to minister on a pluralistic level and a spiritual level.

Students who complete all three levels of training are eligible to graduate with a "Certificate in Chaplaincy."  This certifies them by Promise Christian University that they have learned the basic tools necessary to begin their vocation as a Christian Chaplain.

The Promise Christian University Chaplains Training program is excellent also for those seeking appointments as a police, fire, hospice, hospital, rest home, marketplace chaplaincy.

Chaplain: A promise to give full military honors

“Our veterans are dying at a rate of 1,600 a day. Because of the war on terrorism, our active and reserve forces are committed to preserving our democratic free society. As a result, 90 percent of America’s finest are buried without final military honors.” — Lt. Gen. Allen Baumann, National Commanding General of the U.S. Volunteers Joint Services Command

Thanks for the training you have given me! God is using you mightily in placing people to spread His kingdom in different branches of government. After I completed my chaplain program with PCU, I mailed my resume to three different police agencies easily about a year ago. I got a call for an interview mid November of last year from Arcadia Police Department. I was processed as an applicant as a volunteer police chaplain. Just two days ago, I was told that I got the position. Praise the Lord!- Bro RG
