School Chaplaincy Skill Development: Get Accreditation For Full Time Employment

Aug 14, 2023

The National School Chaplain Association (NSCA) (405-831-3299) is on a mission to grow the chaplaincy profession by both training aspiring individuals and nurturing those already in the role.

If you’re already a school chaplain, or you would like to be one, the NSCA reminds you that it is their sole mission to support you and your good work—and to help you become better at what you do.

The National School Chaplain Association is constantly expanding and diversifying their chaplaincy training programs and curriculums so that they can best nurture interested school chaplains and facilitate their move into the profession by empowering them with the toolkit they will need to become leading spiritual care providers and connecting them with job opportunities. Now, the NSCA wants you to know that they have also created a number of new chaplaincy skill development courses that they believe will also help current school chaplains, independent chaplains who are not currently accredited with the association, and trained chaplains returning after a lengthy absence, to grow in their skills and move into a more esteemed chaplaincy position.

The National School Chaplain Association has seen that in the last few years, there has been both a greater demand for school chaplains in school communities in the US, and greater demands placed upon the role of school chaplain. With mental health services languishing in many school districts, school chaplains have increasingly become the leading source of both pastoral care and general wellbeing support in many schools.

Therefore, the NSCA believes it is incumbent upon their association to both adequately guide you if you want to become a school chaplain, or to help you if you are a current school chaplain and you want to keep enhancing your skills so that you can meet these changing demands.

Above all, the NSCA’s chaplaincy skill development programs are delivered to you with an ethos of nurturing, a quality which they also believe is essential to being a good chaplain. All training is held online and is conducted in partnership with Oral Roberts University. The National School Chaplain Association subsidizes all of their study programs to make them more accessible to you wherever you are in your career.

The National School Chaplain Association is a non-profit charitable organization that believes wholeheartedly in the value of school chaplains in bringing spiritual care, hope, and happiness to schools across the country. They are always available to you—whether you are an aspiring, newly accredited or established chaplain.

A spokesperson for the association said, “The National School Chaplain Association was established to promote school chaplains as legitimate and necessary members of a school staff through national standards for school chaplains. Our mission is to equip chaplains to serve the spiritual needs of PK-12 students, staff, and their families.”

The National School Chaplain Association is the only organization in the US who nurtures school chaplains.
