List of CRC pastors serving as US military chaplains?

  452 views

I'm a church planter in an area with Army, Air Force, and Navy installations.  Recently connected with a new couple that just moved here.  They're not Reformed, but told me they had developed a relationship with a chaplain at their last post (Fort Hood) who they thought had attended CTS.  This chaplain was re-assigned about the same time they were, and I believe is now in the Washington DC area.

I am wondering if there's a way to find out which Army chaplains are affiliated with the CRC?  Is there a list somewhere that I can look up?  Someone I can contact in GR?

Jason,

Thanks for the question about locating chaplains. We have provided two ways to find chaplains on our denominational web page (crcna.org/chaplaincy):

1) A directory of chaplains by category (Military, Hospital, etc.) and then by name  -- look in the left hand column for Directory

2) An interactive map (good for looking in a geographic region) -- top left corner

Unfortunately we just did an upgrade to this map to make it work more quickly and I see that it is showing only a smattering of the 123 current chaplains. I will send a note to I.T. and hope that it is fixed soon. You should be able to zoom in to any area, click on any dot and learn who is there where they are employed.

Blessings,

Ron Klimp - Dir. of Chaplaincy and Care

Chaplain (MAJ) InSoon (Gho) Hoagland is the only chaplain I am aware of that was stationed at Fort Hood.
She is in Korea right now.  I'm sure she'd love to hear from them.

There is a directory of chaplains in the back of the CRC Yearbook.  In the 2012 Yearbook, the list runs from page 687-689.  I'm assuming from the length that it's a complete list, but the chaplains office is probably a better place to verify that.
