Deanery for the Chaplaincy Vocational Chaplains

Depending upon the type of Chaplaincy ministry, the qualifications and credentials necessary vary greatly. Competency, clarity about professional roles, and the ability to articulate and keep appropriate boundaries while still entering into empathetic pastoral relationship is critical to maintaining respect for and trust in the work of professional, vocational chaplains. Therefore, the ACNA requires the highest levels of competency, though education and training, be obtained and maintained by our endorsed Chaplain corps; regardless of whether the Chaplain is full or part time. Endorsed Chaplains are canonically resident in the Deanery (meaning the Deanery Bishop exercises Episcopal authority and oversight). For information, contact Chaplain Dave Barrett, Vocational Chaplain Coordinator.
