    Essentials of Fire Chaplaincy

    Instructors: Doug Kizer, Jimmie Duncan, Tony Portell

    This is a two day (16 hour ) class that is an introduction to fire chaplaincy. Essentials is a foundational course upon which all other fire chaplaincy courses are developed. The Essentials class is designed for the newly appointed chaplain, as well as the veteran chaplain who needs a refresher course to update their information and skills.

    Advanced Chaplain Training

    One day class on Tuesday April 24th

    Instructors: Multiple Instructors

    This is a one full day of instruction is designed to equip chaplains in a number of vital areas for serving those in the Fire Service

    1. How Chaplains Serve Their Department-The class will train chaplains working with Fire Service personnel and understanding the role of the chaplain and the many services chaplains can provide to departments
    2. Working With the Red Cross in Disasters-How Fire Department chaplains interact with the Red Cross during local disasters.
    3. The Chief's Perspective-A local Indiana Fire Chief will provide insight on leading a fire department in the 21st century. From the Chief's perspective, we will learn where chaplains interact and how we serve.
    4. Chaplain Roundtable-We have all learned many valuable lessons through our experiences. Sharing these experiences are valuable tools for the fire chaplain  who may face similar situations.


    The cost for the Essentials of Fire Chaplaincy is $125.00. This class is based on the Federation of Fire Chaplains Manual. You will be able to purchase a manual in a 3 ring binder notebook for $60.00 or in an electronic version on a flash drive for $30.00
