Are you looking for a way to start your career even if you’re still studying? The National School Chaplain Association’s chaplaincy program will help you get work experience as a school chaplain with a training course you can take while in college.
Have you always wanted to serve the youth and make a difference in their lives? Have you always felt they needed more spiritual care, but the current education system isn't providing them with enough moral guidance? The National School Chaplain Association's training program will help you reach out to the youth as a school chaplain.
The program is designed for college students who want to get a head start on their careers as school chaplains. Depending on the level of training you need, the course earns you college credits that can be counted toward a bachelor’s or associate’s degree.

Depending on the experience that you have, the NSCA will group you according to level. For chaplains who are already accredited in another country or state, the association recommends Level One. There is very little training required at this level, and the focus is more on background checking and placement. Level Two is a 48-hour course for those with experience teaching or working with youth groups. Lastly, Level Three is a year-long course recommended for those without any experience.

The chaplaincy training program is conducted in collaboration with Oklahoma Christian University. College students in Level Two earn one college credit or three CEU points upon completion of the program. Level Three trainees, on the other hand, will have the entire one-year course credited as an equivalent year toward their current degree. This means you do not need to fall behind in your studies or take a gap year to get your chaplaincy accreditation.
After you complete the program, the NSCA will conduct a background check before you are given your badge and placed with a school. This includes not only FBI and Interpol records but also social media accounts to ensure that they send out outstanding chaplains who can make a difference in the lives of children and teenagers.
“Trained and licensed chaplains provide counsel, education, advocacy, life improvement skills, and recovery training, providing a bridge between the secular and spiritual environments of community life throughout the United States,” a spokesperson said.
Making a difference in the lives of our youth will significantly impact the kind of people they will grow up to become. As a chaplain, you take an active part in molding the next generation and ensuring they have the proper moral standards and spiritual foundation later on in life. Help schools build stronger, more spiritually resilient students!
