Who We Are


     In collaboration with local communities, organizations, and government agencies, the purpose and goal of the Idaho Chaplains Association (ICA) is to mobilize and equip chaplains to serve and support by being the spiritual and emotional presence during life’s critical moments.

     ICA recognizes the immense emotional stress that first responders and public safety agencies face when dealing with life’s critical moments.  We are committed to partnering with these agencies in order to fulfill spiritual and emotional demands that arise. 

      The mission statement of the Idaho Chaplains Association is simply to equip, empower and engage for service. [Ephesians 4:12….to equip his people for works of service...]
