What is a Chaplain?
Chaplains are men or women, servants of God, who take care of needy people in a specific period of time. Chaplains exercise their duty in hospitals, prisons, during periods of war, old people's homes, rehabilitation centers, funerals, police stations, ambulances and fire departments.
They may be present in areas where earthquakes have struck, tornadoes, etc. They are found in concerts, crusades, vigils, retreats, etc. They are ready to give spiritual support and care.
They may exercise the duty of a Pastor, Evangelist, Missionary, etc, since they represent Christ and His church from outside the four walls.
They may serve independently, as a non for profit ministry, out of their own office location.
What is a Wholistic Chaplain?
Holism (from ὂλος holos, a Greek word meaning all, whole, entire, total) is the idea that all the properties of a given system (physical, biological, chemical, social, economic, mental, linguistic, religious, emotional, etc.) cannot be determined or explained by its component parts alone. Instead, the system as a whole determines in an important way how the parts behave.
Wholistic Chaplains take a total approach in giving care to an individual. They minister to an individual's spirit, soul, and body. Natural health is a big part of their total care approach.
There is a vast need in our community and corporate world for wholistic chaplains.
