Chaplains hold a vital place within the pastoral ministry.
They enter the lives of suffering
people during times of great emotional, physical, and spiritual crisis.
They are caring caregivers that stand beside those who are suffering, offering
prayer, encouragement, and spiritual direction. Often, this includes ministry
to entire families. As such, chaplains have to be more than just well-meaning
volunteers. Qualified chaplains are deeply committed to Scriptural integrity.
Whether in hospice care, hospitals, institutional correctional chaplaincy,
in fire, police, and emergency roles or campus chaplaincy and nursing homes,

International Chaplains Fellowship was formed to answer
a rapidly growing need for trained, qualified, and commited chaplains of
all denominational backgrounds. ICF strives to provide growth through it's
high standards, strong adherence to our code of ethics, certificate programs,
and a faithful commitment to the sacred service of others. Our creed is ,
"Supporting Chaplains Through Prayer, Fellowship and Training" as reflected
in 2nd Corinthians
He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can
comfort others. When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the
same comfort God has given us..
Often people make assumptions when their questions go un-answered or
un-communicated. That can be dangerous and damaging to both the chaplain
and organization. So this is what ICF is and is not
