All TFC Global employees are responsible for raising awareness, prayer and funds for the organization and chaplain’s service area. As a faith-based non-profit, there are no automatic salaries for chaplains. Chaplains are to raise funds through faith partners (donors) and work to secure chaplaincy service contracts in trucking companies. Therefore, compensation is twofold: 1. Funds raised through faith partners 2. Hourly pay while under contract with a trucking company.

The IO (International Operations/Base of TFC Global Operations) provide organizational support, administrative services and training to equip you with methods to enlist faith partners and trucking company contracts.
