Endorsement is an exclusive, on-going covenant relationship between the CRCNA, your calling church, and you. Chaplaincy and Care Ministry pledges to provide support to those who enter spiritual care ministry as well as guidance, support and supervision to those who serve in these ministries. Chaplains agree to participate in the life of their faith community and to maintain communication and accountability to the CRCNA. Endorsements are renewed every five years as formal way to reaffirm this covenant relationship and celebrate your gifts and ministry.
Why Renew your Endorsement?
Endorsement renewal is a great way for a chaplain to reconnect with their calling church, the denomination, and Chaplaincy and Care Ministry. Chaplains have the opportunity to share about their work and receive guidance and support. The church and denomination have opportunities for education and meaningful connection with their communities. For Chaplaincy and Care Ministry, renewal marks a chaplain’s years of service and enables them to better supervise, train, and encourage chaplains in their ministry. Five-year renewal is required for chaplains to maintain their endorsement through the CRCNA.
Steps for Renewal
Chaplains must renew their endorsements every five years. Chaplaincy and Care Ministry (CCM) will contact you to let you know when your renewal is due. To renew your endorsement, please complete the following steps:
Once these steps are completed, the Director of Chaplaincy and Care Ministry will sign your CJS and an updated letter of endorsement. These will be sent to the chaplain, calling church, and classis.
Contact CCM at [email protected] or (616) 224-0844 to start your renewal process.
