Loss and trauma can take various forms, whether it's an acute situation involving the loss of a loved one or an ongoing challenge like medical difficulties, workplace stress, or family and interpersonal issues. Our team of certified Chaplains are trained to offer comfort and hope to individuals dealing with these difficult and potentially life-altering events.


Our Chaplaincy School courses are tailored to prepare individuals who feel called to this compassionate ministry and provide students with the essential skills needed for serving in various communities. Additionally, we offer chaplain certification and endorsement for individuals who desire a nationally recognized and in-state endorsement.


The mission statement of the Idaho Chaplains Association is to equip, empower, and engage for service.


      --Ephesians 4:12 " equip his people for works of service..."
