"These girls identify with a suffering Christ, one who was innocent and violated, one who identifies with their pain and brokenness. In time, hope, self-affirmation, and a new identity in Christ eventually replace shame."
CRCNA Chaplaincy and Care
Chaplaincy and Care Ministry (CCM) endorses exceptional, well-trained ministers of the Word or commissioned pastors who serve in specialized ministries beyond the walls of the church. Chaplains are ordained, gifted and trained, called by the church, and sent by Jesus Christ to provide spiritual care to people in pain or spiritual distress.
Chaplains Training has always been a great time for chaplains to learn, worship together, and reconnect with their denominational roots. In 2019, we saw some wonderful changes that made this event memorable.
