Become a Chaplain through Christian Leaders Institute

Enroll Today to Start Your Chaplain Journey!

Is God calling you to be a Chaplain? Do you sense the calling to help people? Do you find joy in the presence of God?

Chaplains perform a variety of religious services for the institution or organization that they serve. Some Chaplains are volunteers or part-time serving in local police, firehouse, VFW, and other civic organizations. While ministry training is needed, these certification and clergy recognition programs do not have as many requirements as a career chaplain.

What do Chaplains do?

  • Organize and preach at chapel services
  • Lead/administer communion
  • Perform wedding ceremonies
  • Conduct officiating rites
  • Provide counseling and prayers
  • Provide spiritual guidance

If you feel called to serve people as a ministry chaplain, Christian Leaders Institute can provide you with all the training you need. We have classes covering theological knowledge and classes that have practical application to chaplaincy and leadership in the Christian church.
