“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free”- Luke 14:18
For some time now, I have been sharing with you that the Lord has called me to ministry and I must answer the call.
With the climate of our society today, I am convinced that, more than anything, we need men of God to rise to the occasion.
The Lord has shown me that the avenue that I must take is through Chaplaincy.
This training will not only equip and empower me to serve as a first respondent, but also gives me an opportunity to Preach the gospel in Prisons and jails across the nation.
I intend on also taking the gospel into the streets that I grew up on. Yes, street ministry is indeed needed.
I am seeking training, Certification, License and Ordination for this ministry through the International Fellowship of Chaplains
IFOC Chaplaincy Certification Training is necessary for Emergency Service Personnel, Law Enforcement, Industrial Chaplains, and those who wish to become Chaplains and includes training in:pe
Critical Incident Stress
Grief and Loss
PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
Spirituality & Trauma
