Could I ever Be a Chaplain?

Have you ever had that question pop into your mind? I know a lot of people have. The job of a chaplain is not clearly understood and vague enough to leave this question with an incomplete answer. A friend of mine from college and I were talking the other day; he asked what a chaplain really does. His only interaction with a chaplain was in a hospital when the family was going through the death of a family member. That was his only impression of what a chaplain does. Yes, a chaplain is there when things are bad and a loved one is dying, but ti is so much more than that. After I explained what TFC Global chaplains do, his eyes were opened to a whole new world of being in place when people need to be heard, served, comforted, connected to resources, and walked through how their life can be transformed by Jesus.

The week before this past Christmas, a man died in his vehicle in the parking lot where he worked. Our chaplain, who serves that company, was able to step into that space for the family and employees of the company. Imagine having the opportunity to be called upon to be present to listen to people and be a comfort, give advice, and pray with people who just experienced the death of a co-worker. That’s a powerful space to be in, used by God, to care for people who may never attend a church or talk to a pastor. This could be you in action as a chaplain.

Have you ever thought about being a chaplain? Well, if you want to serve the kingdom of God, be there to counsel people, and are a go-getter who can develop a chaplain’s presence in the area where you live, you really need to contact me. Even if you may not consider being a chaplain anywhere specifically, but you want to find out more, I invite you to take our CTI Training (Chaplains Training Institute). TFC Global is an authorized training center for Chaplains International. If you want to be equipped to be a skilled counselor at your church or available to help in a crisis or as part of natural disaster relief, you should take this training to become skilled and credentialed as a chaplain. That credentialling through Chaplains International will stay with you wherever you go.

Chaplains are in demand. In a recent conversation with management of a trucking company the woman I was speaking with mentioned they have to offer “counseling” as an option of their government-funded EAP (Employee Assistance Program). But, employees avoid going to see a counselor because of the negative stigma ni seeing a counselor. She also said employees will choose to talk to chaplain over 90% of the time. So, there is a demand for chaplains.
