Ordinary Everyday People Called to an Extraordinary Ministry
Ecclesiastical endorsement - legal ministry license - ordination - Ministry & Crisis Training

John 15:16-17 “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. These things I command you that ye love one another.”

People were Jesus' top priority. He involved Himself in the lives of people who were considered the worst of sinners, and He met them where they had needs. In doing so, He helped elevate their sense of self worth. One of the ways Jesus gave worth to the people was by showing them their value in God's eyes, by comparing God's care for other creatures with His care for them.

The authority of Jesus was opposed because He was a poor carpenter's son from the village of Nazareth. The majority of ministry and missionary activity in the early Church and Ministry was accomplished by nonprofessionals, ordinary men and women involved in secular work as their occupations. Jesus entrusted ordinary everyday people with major responsibilities of spreading the Gospel. He took fishermen from their boats, He made them fishers of men. Jesus knew that ordinary everyday people would become extraordinary in ministry. When the Lord calls us into ministry He does not place limitations on us, we are only limited by our own imaginations. We look forward to speaking with you about your calling and how we may be able to help you further your reach in the ministry.

2 Peter 1:5-7 - Make every effort to add to your faith , goodness; and to your goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love."

Chaplain Fellowship Ministries is a Christ centered, Christ rooted ministry dedicated to recruiting, training, ordaining, licensing, motivating, and mobilizing an international network of chaplains and ministries who have been called to serve where ever needed. From the beginning, the spread of the Gospel was a lay movement. Men like Peter and John were untrained fishermen. The majority of ministry and missionary activity in the early Church and Ministry was accomplished by nonprofessionals, ordinary men and women involved in secular work as their occupations. Jesus entrusted the laity "ordinary people" with major responsibilities of spreading the Gospel. He took fishermen from their boats, He made them fishers of men. Jesus knew that ordinary everyday people would become extraordinary when empowered by the Holy Spirit. When the Lord calls us into His ministry He does not place any limitations on us, we are only limited by our own imaginations.

The members of Chaplain Fellowship Ministries are ordained and licensed as nondenominational chaplains and ministers. We are a one of a kind ministry of presence with members and affiliate ministries serving Nationwide. We come from all faith groups, ethnic, gender and educational backgrounds. Chaplain Fellowship Ministries by God's grace and guidance has been molded and shaped after the Ministry of Jesus, and we are growing by leaps and bounds every day. We are looking for real people who are serious about their calling. The members of Chaplain Fellowship Ministries are very real hard working people with the heart and compassion to reach out to those who are lost or in need.

The great commission: Chaplain Fellowship is about the great commission. Do you feel like you are being called to do something that will make a difference in your life, but you don't know where to start? I think that maybe we have all felt that call at some point in our lives. Becoming ordained and licensed as a Chaplain and Minister will take you far beyond your wildest imagination, it will make you a much larger person in the spirit of the Lord than you ever dreamed you could be. As Chaplains and Ministers if we see someone in need and have the ability to help them and don't, how can we say that the love of Jesus abides in us? Never forget that what we go after here on earth, determines where we go in the hereafter. We make a living from what we get, but we make a life from what we give. Anyone can give without loving, but no one can love without giving.

Proverbs 11:25 - Be generous, and you will be prosperous. Help others, and you will be helped. Those who are good are rewarded here on earth, so you can be sure that wicked and sinful people will be punished.

Chaplain Fellowship Ministries is internationally recognized as a faith based nondenominational ministry of presence that offers everyone including the every day hard working man or woman an opportunity to serve in the position of an ordained Chaplain and Minister through specific ministry programs. Chaplain Fellowship offers ordination, ecclesiastical endorsements and certifications in your chosen field of ministry thereby allowing anyone who feels God has called them to be able to minister at some level as a ordained Chaplain and Minister. Our Mission is to ordain, qualify, equip and offer training to officially recognize those seeking legal ministry license, ordination, endorsement and certification documentation as ministers, pastors, priests and chaplains.

The picture on the right is a very real person and the best example we have to prove the need for nursing home Chaplains, no one should ever be treated this way. When Chaplains make regular visits to nursing homes, it cuts down on this type of mistreatment. Not all nursing homes have this type of abuse, but there are many that do. This little lady is a child of God, and there is no doubt that there is a special place in Heaven for her. This type of abuse is a disgrace and we should all be ashamed to allow such treatment of our senior citizen. As legally ordained Chaplains we CAN make a difference in this world, we just need to get out there and do it. All it takes is good hearted people who have compassion, mercy, kindness, love and understanding. If you don't want to be a legally ordained chaplain or minister fine, just please do something in your life to make a difference in the lives of those who are hurting, suffering, who have lost everything, or have nothing, and no where to turn. We have to be there for each others, as brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, it is up to us! You can make a difference to get started!

James 2:14 - Dear brothers and sisters, what's the use of saying you have faith if you don't prove it by your actions? That kind of faith can't save anyone.

We know by building and strengthening our communities and proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus to the world at large we are doing what He has called us to do. Jesus has poured out His Spirit upon us, we are to help the lost who are seeking salvation, we are to help those seeking healing for the spirit soul and body with the anointing that rests upon each of us in the name of Jesus.

James 1:27 - What God the Father considers to be pure and genuine religion is this: to take care of orphans and widows in their suffering and to keep oneself from being corrupted by the world.

Chaplain Fellowship Ministries will not judge you, belittle you or criticize you for your past, or your lack of a formal education. Please understand it takes all of us to get the job done, just as Jesus recruited many from different backgrounds. It does not take a college graduate to walk into a biker bar full of bikers, in fact we would not advise it, it takes a biker who has been there. Nursing home chaplaincy or ministry takes a chaplain who is ordained and has compassion, mercy, love and understanding, it takes those who have the love of Jesus Christ in their hearts. It requires someone who knows how to listen, and many times someone to just be there with them when they are dying, the thought of dying alone is very scary for senior citizens. Who better to work with our returning troops or veterans of other wars than veteran who are chaplains themselves that have been there and understand their pain, suffering, fears and disappointments.

James 2:13 - For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. Does anyone not want a merciful judgment from God, before whom all must stand?

When we begin our work as an ordained chaplains and ministers we can be confident that the Lord who has already started a good work in us and He will complete it. Please never let anyone tell you that you are not good enough for the Lord's ministry, or that the Lord has not called you into HIS ministry. There is no human being on the face of this earth who has the right to judge or decide who has been called, or who has not been called. We understand that it is the Lord who ordains, we simply recognizes what He has already done.

We all need Jesus as our Lord and Savior in our everyday lives. He is the one who can lift us above the degrading forces of evil in the world that tries to tell us we are not good enough. It is Jesus who holds all things together, including our lives. Become a member and receive your God given right to ordination and license as a legal member of the clergy. Take a leap of faith, and watch your whole world, and the way you see thing, literally transform before your very eyes.

Galatians 1:6-9 - Spiritual enemies also include false teachers. We must be extremely cautious about whom we listen to. Never let anyone tell you that you are not good enough or smart enough to follow the Lords' calling in your lives.

Those Who Share In His Suffering Shall Also Share In His Glory! We believe all Christians have been given spiritual gifts to fulfill their callings. Ministry ordination is a spiritual gift and calling directly from God and is not to be taken lightly. He chooses to call who he will, or to use any instrument, to accomplish His will. When we act upon our calling, we become a member of HIS Ministry.

Chaplains are ministers called to serve God's people as commissioned by the sacred Word of God. In Christian grace and duty Chaplains respond with love and compassion to people's needs in their whole existence. Chaplains embrace the understanding that human beings are created in the image of God with uniqueness and freedom to think, act and feel. When we do our best, God will do the rest. Jesus made it clear if we give a man a fish, we feed him for one day, but if we teach him to fish, we feed him for a lifetime. God carries out His plan through those obedient to Him in spite of their human frailties.

Galatians 6:4- You should each judge your own conduct. If it is good, then you can be proud of what you yourself have done, without having to compare it with what someone else has done.

Romans 12:1-4-8 - Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Jesus we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
