By definition, a chaplain is simply a “minister in the workplace” which performs a secular purpose. These chaplains are clergy who usually serve in specialized settings such as first responder (law enforcement, EMS , military, etc.) and community (district attorney, schools, hospital, hospice, prisons, corrections, corporations, etc). As specially trained clergy, Chaplains seek to encourage others while ministering to the whole person, addressing a person’s spiritual, physical and emotional needs. Chaplaincy is a bridge where both a secular and spiritual purpose is served within an organization and is a highly specialized ministry. Chaplains operate at the cutting edge where ministry and social structures intersect.
