WELS Chaplain Certificate Program

There is a growing need to share the love of Christ with people who are experiencing special life situations, including but not limited to those who are confined to hospitals, correctional facilities, serving in the military, and/or other private and public residences. WELS pastors and lay workers are increasingly drawn to participate in such ministries.

As these opportunities for gospel ministry increase, those specializing in this ministry are required to be better trained and to carry qualifying credentials, certificates, and appropriate degrees for various forms of chaplaincy care.

The WELS Chaplain Certificate Program has been designed and implemented to prepare and qualify pastors and lay workers for these specialized ministries. The WELS Chaplain Certificate Program also requires continuing education units for graduates to retain certification.
