Certified Interfaith Pastoral Counseling, Coaching and Trauma Relief Service

Chaplaincy Training Program

The Pastoral Department at TUFF Services Ministries, has created a volunteer Chaplaincy Training Program, that enhances, educates and supports potentially new volunteer Chaplain's, with the proper training tools and resources, to provide the spiritual care of patients, survivors and their families. The department’s mission is based on a nondenominational-Christian faith and is designed to promote the healing process as part of a united effort with other professionals in the health care field. This common work is strengthened by the relationship established between our department's training tools, resources and experience, along with other organizations of the religious community.

The Chaplain's in our department, are volunteers, who are qualified through their front-line-training experience, in addition to their education with our organization, to offer proper spiritual care to all people. They are also trained in the sensitivity of individual beliefs, that enable them to meet people at the point of their needs.
