Job Description:

ABOUT The Navy Chaplain Corps boasts 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 servicemembers and their families, including those subscribing to no specific faith Advising the command in ensuring the free exercise of religion RESPONSIBILITIES As a Navy Chaplain, your job spans a broad range of duties.

In what can be best described as a ministry of presence, they are there to offer guidance and insight in the moment, whenever they're needed.
