Seeking Faith Leaders for Community Chaplain Corps
Posted at 1 p.m.
We are in search of local faith leaders who have an interest in providing pastoral care and support to members of the community in emergency situations as part of our Community Chaplain Corps.
The Community Chaplain Corps works within our emergency management structure to administer to the needs of community members in distress. Community chaplains can be ordained leaders of any religion and must complete a series of five required training courses prior to receiving their certification and credentials from the Office of Emergency Management.
The next training series is scheduled to begin Jan. 12, 2015.
Interested faith leaders must complete and submit applications no later than Nov. 14. Additional information and application materials are available online.
Questions about the Fairfax County Community Chaplain Corps may be directed to the Community Interfaith Coordination Office at NCSInterfaith@fairfaxcounty.gov, or by calling 703-324-3452, TTY 711.
