As an Army chaplain you will have the responsibility of caring for the spiritual well-being of Soldiers and their Families. An Army chaplain's parish can consist of over 1,500 people. For this reason, the Army chaplain is crucial to the success of the Army's mission. Exercising leadership in things that are spiritual requires a special person with a unique calling.

The Army Chaplaincy is a religiously diverse population reflecting the diversity of the Army, yet each chaplain must minister in accordance to the guidelines of their distinct faith group. Army Chaplains oversee the spiritual care of their assigned units wherever they may train or deploy. They also assist with the congregational care of their assigned posts by performing religious ceremonies, rituals, and rites in accordance to their respective faiths.

Unlike most officers in the Army, a chaplain begins serving as a staff officer immediately. As a member of the commander's special staff, the chaplain is responsible for providing advice in matters pertaining to religion, morals, and morale. The chaplain serves the Army with a chaplain assistant (56M) as part of a Unit Ministry Team (UMT). As a non-combatant, chaplains do not possess a weapon. The chaplain assistant provides security for the UMT and assists with the administrative aspects of the UMT's ministry. Fully trained in the technical arena of religious support and Soldier-specific tasks, chaplain assistants are an integral part of the UMT's ministry and mission.

Chaplains do not go through regular Basic Training. Instead, they attend the Chaplain Basic Officer Leadership Course (CHBOLC), which is a 12 week course taught at Fort Jackson, S.C. This course provides an introduction to Chaplain common core skills, Army writing, and Chaplaincy specific training. 

Other roles and responsibilities common to the chaplaincy:

  • Overseeing a full program of religious ministries, including: workshops, counseling sessions, religious education and special events.

  • Officiating at official ceremonies such as military functions, funerals, and memorials.

  • Providing Ministry to a variety of armed service personnel and civilians from the US, foreign nations, and governmental agencies.
