group of army chaplains praying in a circle


Alliance founder, A.B. Simpson shared the gospel in non-church facilities while pursuing the call to take “the whole Bible to the whole world.” Likewise, our chaplains today share the good news in challenging and diverse environments where traditional ministries often have little or no access.


Prisons, military installations, hospitals, and nursing homes are some of the unique settings in which our Federal or Institutional Chaplains engage people who live and work outside of the organized church.


C&MA chaplains perform a full range of ministerial services, including:

  • Preaching and teaching the Word of God
  • Administering church ordinances, including the Lord’s Supper and Baptism
  • Officiating at weddings (subject to state laws) and funerals

Answer the Call

Alliance chaplains are men and women who are called to share the good news of the gospel in challenging, diverse environments—places where traditional church workers often have little or no access. If you are considering a call to the chaplaincy, the need has never been greater, the experience never so rich.
