Chaplains are some of the Church of the Nazarene’s most effective missional leaders. They serve in a variety of settings including health care, correctional facilities, business/industrial communities, and the military. Through their dedicated service, thousands come to know Christ each year, receive spiritual care, equipping for ministry, and support and counsel in times of crisis.

In the Church of the Nazarene, individuals serving in the military, institutional, or industrial chaplaincy must be ordained and must have been approved for such specialized service by their district superintendent.
