Assemblies of God has a developing Chaplaincy Ministry. Kirk McAtear Missions Director for AoG heads up the Chaplaincy Team with an appointed lead for a number of significant chaplaincy sectors.
A growing number of AoG Ministers and Lay Church Members are serving God in such diverse places as prisons, hospitals, schools & the armed forces. The work is pastoral, offering compassion and a listening ear, but also affirming and encouraging, bringing an informed Christian view to the places that we visit and people we meet. Our aim is to care for people at their point of need, communicating the love of Christ in a compassionate and practical way.
AoG provides endorsement for our Ministers to work as Chaplains. Endorsement for NHS and Prison Chaplains is through our membership of the Free Churches Group and for Armed Forces Chaplaincy is through the United Navy, Army and Air Force Board.
The Ministry of Defence welcome Assemblies of God Ministers who hold full ministerial status to apply to be Chaplains within all three branches of the Armed Forces. Peter John Baptist is the AoG Lead for Military Chaplaincy. He works closely with David Spademan who formally represents AoG on the United Navy, Army and Air Force Board (United Board). There are three distinct stages to your application:
Firstly. your application needs to be supported by AoG. You should contact Peter John Baptiste and David Spademan to ensure that you meet the application requirements and that through David that you have acquired the endorsement of the AoG National Leader. You may be invited for an interview.
Your application will then need to be made to the United Board who will consider you endorsement.
Following endorsement by the United Board formal application can then be made to the appropriate branch of the Armed Forces.
