What is a Chaplain?
A Chaplain is a person who has answered God’s call to serve the people in their community. A Chaplain then pursues the appropriate training to effectively serve in a capacity that is meaningful to them: either by reaching out to the sick in a hospital, serving the membership of their church, working as a spiritual contact for a ministry, or working with benevolent/nonprofit organizations.
What is a Threefold Chaplaincy Volunteer?
A Threefold Chaplaincy Volunteer is sent by a local church, a benevolent/non-profit organization, a hospital or healthcare agency, or a ministry into the individual community each entity serves. Their primary function is one of “the ministry of presence” – just being available to help, to listen, and knowing where to find resources.
The Threefold Chaplaincy Volunteer Training program is an intensive two-part program that creates a strong foundation upon which to build a ministry of service to the confined care citizens in our communities. The program provides training along with a workbook, community resource guide, and certificate of completion.
