InFaith is pleased to provide nondenominational ecclesiastical endorsement to U.S. military chaplains, military chaplain candidates, and hospital chaplains. The chaplains we endorse enjoy prayer support, opportunities to fellowship with others in ministry through our annual national conference and local area fellowships, and a newsletter written just for chaplains serving under the banner of InFaith.
Thank you for your interest in seeking endorsement through InFaith. Please contact Jean Andreozzi for further information.
What's Ecclesiastical Endorsement?
- InFaith's ecclesiastical endorsement is a professional credential, which affirms to an employer that the applicant will be performing a valid church ministry, has demonstrated evidence of a calling, and has received appropriate training for that ministry.
- InFaith's ecclesiastical endorsement represents that the applicant is in good standing with the church body. In addition, endorsement creates an agreement of mutual commitment, accountability, and support between the chaplain and our ministry as a non-denominational mission organization.
- InFaith's ecclesiastical endorsement is not ordination. All applicants will need to be ordained by their churches. In this way, every chaplain will be accountable to his or her sponsoring church, ordaining authority, endorsing agency, and institution of employment.
- InFaith does not employ chaplains, nor do we assign the people we endorse to chaplaincy positions.
