The Navy Chaplain Corps comprises more than 800 Navy Chaplains from more than 100 different faith groups, including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, and many others. Each Chaplain is also a Navy Officer- meaning each holds an important leadership role.
Chaplains offer everything from faith leadership to personal advice to much needed solace. All while living up to the guiding principles of the Chaplain Mission.
- Providing religious ministry and support to those of your own faith
- Facilitating the religious requirements of those from all faiths
- Caring for all service-members and their families, including those subscribing to no specific faith
- Advising the command in ensuring the free exercise of religion
Serving part-time as a Reservist, your duties will be carried out during your scheduled drilling and training periods. During monthly drilling, Chaplains in the Navy Reserve typically work at a location close to their homes. This gives you the flexibility
to minister in the Navy while maintaining responsibilities to your congregation at home.
For Annual Training, Chaplains may serve anywhere in the world, alongside the Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen to whom they minister. Annual training time is typically around 2 weeks per year.
There are also opportunities for Full-time Chaplains in the Navy.
