Who is a chaplain
Chaplains are men or women, servants of God who are in charge of taking care of people in need at specific times. Chaplains do their work, for example, in: Hospitals, Prison, in times of war, Rehabilitation centers, Funerals, Police Stations, Paramedics and Fire Dept. They are also present in earthquakes, floods and other catastrophes. Finally, they are also in crusades, concerts, vigils, retreats, camping, etc.
-The chaplaincy is an extension of the local, national and international Christian church that gets to different parts of the society from the cultural and religious view. Chaplains take spiritually care of people at crucial moments. Chaplains work as pastors, teachers, evangelists, missionaries, counselors and administrators in specific issues because they represent Jesus and the church out of the building and from the inside of the agency users.
