Most of us come to chaplaincy without formal ministry training and are at a loss of how to accomplish the many things a Chaplain has to do in order to take good care of the members in our post.

Listed on this page are short training items to assist you in your duties as a Chaplain in the Veterans of Foreign Wars. The short training items are not in a particular order, but will be as the items are developed.

We are looking for feed back from our Chaplains as to topics you want to see here.  Please email me at:
