It's Not IF... It's WHEN!
It's going to happen. A natural disaster, a mass casualty incident, or even a line of duty death. When it does happen, Chaplains are present to offer assistance. comfort, and care to all in need. But when the event is over, where does the Chaplain turn for help?
That's why Midwest Chaplain Network exists - we want to be an ongoing resource of spiritual and emotional support for First Response Chaplains and the First Responders they serve.

We recently launched a YouTube channel! We're looking forward to utilizing this medium to network with Chaplains and to bring vital and important training and information to First Response Chaplains and to the First Responders they serve. Please visit our channel and subscribe! We'll be adding videos soon!
