The Chaplain’s Manual and Functions: Be Available Always
The chaplaincy or the chaplain ministries is an ancient tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation to take the ministry from the church to organizations and institutions where there a people in different kinds of need and a search for salvation. Chaplaincy is particularly the church’s way of reaching out to people outside the church building, to meet both physical and spiritual needs. Most times, chaplaincies exist in institutions that do not particularly have a church for its members within the vicinity. To cover up for the lack of a church and a pastor, there is provision for a Chaplain, and a chapel.
