The Essentials of Fire Chaplaincy is the basic level 100 course of fire chaplains, a foundational study upon which all other chaplaincy courses are built.

Advanced Chaplain Training

One day class on Tuesday, April 24th, taught by multiple leaders.
This one day course will equip chaplains in a number of vital areas in serving fire department personnel.

1.  How Chaplains serve their Department

This class will train chaplains in working with fire department personnel in understanding the role of chaplains and the many services chaplains provide to departments.

2.  Working with the Red Cross in Disasters

How Fire Department chaplains interact with the Red Cross in local disaster response.

3.  The Chief's Perspective

Local Indianapolis Fire Chief will provide insight on leading the fire department in the 21st century.  Where do chaplains interact and how can we serve from the Chief's perspective. 

4.  Chaplain's Roundtable

All of us have learned on the job through our experience.  These experiences are valuable learning tools not only for the chaplain involved but also for those who may face similar situations in the future.
