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.

New Name - Same Mission!

We recently changed our "doing business as" name from the Midwest Chaplain Association to the Midwest Chaplain Network.  We felt that the word "Association" reflected more of a governing role than that of a co-laborer in Chaplaincy.  That is not the message we wish to express!  Our leadership team felt that the word "Network" was more appropriate for this organization.  We are an organization that wants to assist other Police, Fire, and EMS Chaplains by providing resources, networking, training, and fellowship with one another. We want to encourage and build up fellow Chaplains in their times of success and in their times of failure!

Thank you for embracing this change with us! We look forward to serving you for many years to come!
