Welcometo our faith-based nonprofit education organization.Crisis Chaplaincy of Harris County (CC of HC) provides a Basic Crisis Chaplain’s training seminar in the Houston, Texas area to introduce ordinary people to the extraordinary world of Volunteer Chaplaincy. Pastors and chaplains are very different – pastors provide spiritual care to people inside the walls of a church to those of similar faith while chaplains minister to the spiritual and emotional needs of those in the secular world.
Volunteer chaplains are in high demand, and can minister to hurting people in numerous places: prisons, disaster sites, hospitals, nursing homes, homeless shelters, and even motorcycle rallies. Chaplains are taught to minister to the individual not just by words but also by good deeds – showing the love of God to people in practical, caring ways, regardless of the individual’s personal beliefs. We cannot ‘pick and choose’ who is hurting around us; we must have tolerance and understanding to go help all people.
The cost for the seminar is $150 and includes training, background check, workbook and a personal ID card identifying you as a CC of HC graduate. After graduation we will update you on any advanced training in our area, such as Pastoral Crisis Care, Psychological First Aid, CISM, etc.
