Details

When disaster strikes, some of the first to respond to help are Southern Baptist disaster relief volunteers. Kentucky has an active disaster relief program which works in concert with similar programs in other states. Whether the disaster occurs in the state of Kentucky or elsewhere in the nation or the world, Kentucky volunteers may be called out to help. Ministering to the spiritual and emotional needs of the survivors of a disaster; that’s the role of the disaster relief chaplain. Every disaster relief team needs at least one chaplain, trained to care for people in the midst of crisis, which is their assigned task. Going door to door in a neighborhood where a chainsaw team is working provides many opportunities of ministry to a chaplain. In addition, stand-alone teams of chaplains may be deployed to minister in disaster situations if requested by the associational director of missions or disaster relief coordinator. Chaplains are also trained to identify and care for other team members who may be overwhelmed by the situation of the disaster. Volunteers serving in the Chaplaincy Ministry are required to have the following training:

  • Phase I – Involving Southern Baptists in Disaster Relief
  • Phase II – 2 Day Chaplaincy Training

Schedule Notes

Chaplaincy training is a two-day session on Friday and Saturday from 9-4. Both days of training are required. The course fee includes training, background check and lunch on Saturday. Completion of Phase I is a prerequisite.

Start: January 16, 2015 9:00 am
End: January 17, 2015 4:00 pm
