Who Are Foursquare Chaplains?

You'll find them in jails, but they've committed no crime. They're at racetracks, but not to place bets. They're in hospitals-but are not ill. They are Foursquare chaplains, and they are serving God outside the walls of church facilities, taking Jesus straight to those who might not even know how much they need Him. Learn more about these men and women, and what it takes to join them on the front lines of service.

We Are Foursquare Chaplains

Restoring Soldiers in the Military

The Vision, Mission and Values of Foursquare Chaplains International

Mission

The chaplain's mission is to be the presence of Christ in the midst of life's crises; living the Foursquare Gospel in secular environments; and sacrificially helping those in need to find wholeness, hope and healing.

Vision

The Vision of Foursquare Chaplains International is to see a well-trained and resourced corps of chaplains serving in areas of their "community," typically beyond the reach of the local church.

Values

Love: Passionately loving God and people, Mark 12:30-31
Loyalty: Living respectfully in relationship to the Lord, to the ministry, to one another and to The Foursquare Church, 1 Kings 8:61
Learning: Embracing lifelong opportunities to grow in our spiritual gifts and innate talents (being lifelong learners), Prov. 1:5, 1 Cor. 14:12
Leadership: Serving with the same attitude modeled by Jesus, who has called us to be servant-leaders with Him, Phil. 2:5-11
Respect: Showing respect for one another and the uniqueness of each ministry discipline, Rom. 12:3

Train

Disaster Relief Training (DRT) and Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) training are open to credentialed ministers and laypersons interested in providing assistance and support in disasters and devastating circumstances.

DRT provides FEMA-approved first responder training that readies responders to work with local Foursquare churches in cases of natural disasters, terrorist attacks, suicides and more. CISM offers training to ministers looking to help people facing devastating circumstances, including those events which impact just a few people, such as the unexpected death of a loved one, as well as to those circumstances affecting larger populations, such as natural disasters.

Visit the Disaster Relief Training and Critical Incident Stress Management Registration website to learn where the next trainings will be held and to register for an upcoming training event, or visit the Foursquare Disaster Relief page to learn more about current works.
