small SC Flood

“The weather catastrophe that has struck the East coast touches all of us in some way.  We have many military members who are assisting with evacuations and rescue who, themselves, are evacuated from their own homes.  We have many chaplains serving in and around the Ft Jackson (Columbia, SC) area and along the Eastern seaboard that have been affected.  It’s clear to me that, for the most part, we didn’t “see this coming.”  So, I ask you to be in prayer for our friends, their families, and our colleagues as they grapple with the aftermath of this storm.  Donations given to Anglican Chaplains that are marked “Storm Recovery” will be put into a discretionary account that will be used to directly support Anglican Chaplains and their families who might need assistance (food or shelter) as they recover from the devastation .  (Any funds not distributed will be sent to the ARDF general fund.)  Please take a moment to pray for our chaplains, our military, our first responders, and all the people affected by this storm.”

Lay Commissioned Chaplains

Under the oversight of the Bishop of the Armed Forces and Chaplaincy, the Special Jurisdiction of the Armed Forces and Chaplaincy supports the endorsement and care of chaplains serving in the US military, federal and local government, hospital and hospice, law enforcement and other vocational and volunteer chaplains serving their communities. We are the endorsing agency and canonical residence for professional chaplains in the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). We also partner with many other ministries to help the church spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
