Taking Chaplaincy training to the nations
Crisis response is one of the best ways for the body of Christ to show the love of Jesus to a hurting world.
I.F.O.C., known internationally as Frontline Chaplains International, promotes the ministry of Chaplaincy across the nations to equip local believers to serve those on the frontlines of crisis.
Frontline Chaplains International has licensed and ordained Chaplains in seven different countries. And counting!
In 2018, FCI traveled to Vietnam to train a group of local believers who are passionate about taking the love of Jesus to people in crisis. They trained 34 local Vietnamese Chaplains to serve in North Vietnam and form an official FCI Corps in the city of Hanoi. FCI-trained Chaplains have now been able to make a significant impact on the hurting in their community, such as intervening with suicidal people with whom they come into contact, serving in several drug rehab centers, and ministering in homes of local families is crisis. In 2019, FCI Vietnam instructors began training new Chaplains in two different schools in Da Nang and Hanoi, multiplying the impact of FCI’s earlier trip. Please pray for our Vietnamese brothers and sisters as we continue to see God at work through Chaplaincy!
November 2021, FCI instructors traveled to Nassau and trained the ministry’s first Chaplain class in the Caribbean. Twenty-eight students learned how to impact their nation through Chaplaincy.
It was an honor to work with experienced ministry leaders and Christians on this trip! A Bahamian Corps of Chaplains was also established with leadership training on the last day. This group of Chaplains will support their first responders and community and will be active in disaster response.
FCI is partnering with the CTC Network in the Caribbean and is scheduling additional training classes in the region to establish a network of Chaplains. These Chaplains will support each other in response to natural and man-made disasters.
January 2022, FCI instructors traveled to the Dominican Republic and trained fifty-four local Christians, Pastors, and Ministry Leaders in Chaplaincy. This group of students was amazing.
FCI would like to offer a sincere thank you to our partner for this trip, Mission of Hope. We are truly appreciative for the opportunity to work together to equip those in the Dominican Republic, and for everything that they did to make the trip possible.
FCI continues to partner with the CTC Network in the Caribbean and is scheduling additional training classes in the region to establish a network of Chaplains. These Chaplains will support each other in response to natural and man-made disasters.
In September 2022, FCI instructors traveled to Barbados and trained seventy-eight local Christians, Pastors, Professionals, First Responders, and Ministry Leaders in Chaplaincy. This amazing group of leaders will be forming a Corps and working together to impact their nation!
FCI would like to recognize I.F.O.C. Chapalin Marlon Charles, who hosted the training. Before this class, Marlon was the sole credentialed I.F.O.C. Chaplain in Barbados.
Do you want to equip others with the life-changing skills you’ve experienced through Chaplain training and education?
Each year, as other nations recognize the value of Chaplaincy, FCI receives multiple invitations to train Chaplains internationally.
FCI is now bringing new Chaplaincy training to the Caribbean nations in 2021 & 2022! Additionally FCI is discussing an opportunity to train in South Africa in 2023.
