The role of the department is to reach out those students, teachers, workers in distress, offering the hope of our soon returning savior Jesus Christ, the head chaplain.
The department ministers to a wide variety of people in a school setting. Students facing life-threatening illnesses, drug addictions, those suffering from family background challenges, workers struggling with the death of a loved one and other challenges
As we sought to minister to each individual, we can sense their openness, their longing for a message of hope beyond what they could see
Chaplaincy is wonderful work. Jesus did it and He is the chief of chaplains, who has called us to bring hope to this wounded world and prepare people for Christ’s second coming.
