mPact Churches is pleased to be a Department of Defense officially recognized endorsing agency for chaplains serving our armed forces and as hospital and Veteran’s Administration chaplains. We became an endorsing agency in December, 2005, under the name Grace Churches International. We continue to use that name for endorsing purposes. We currently endorse chaplains serving in the Army, Air Force and Navy. One of our Navy chaplains serves a Marine unit.
To serve as a chaplain, you must have completed a four-year undergraduate degree and a three-year seminary degree from an accredited institution. Each service also requires ministry experience as an ordained minister. You can also serve as a chaplain candidate while you are completing your seminary degree.
