What We Do As Chaplains

Chaplains are dedicated community based activists that help the community in such areas as: homelessness, community toy drives, veterans support, job searching, juvenile and family programs, spousal and child abuse awareness and education.

A question that has often been asked - What is the difference between a chaplain and a pastor? Both callings are wonderful callings on a person's life, and are desparately needed, but they are very different in ministry. A pastor's ministry deals mainly with in-reach, or we can say church-based. Whereas, a chaplains ministry deals mainly with out-reach, and is community-based. A simple definition of a Chaplain is, "a minister in the workplace." In other words, Chaplains have a church which is actually outside the walls of the church building. It's called the community. Chaplains serve people of all faiths. A Chaplain at the local and national level has constitutional protection, whereas a pastor does not. An ordained Chaplain is recognized by the government, whereas an ordained pastor is not because of the separation of church and state issue. The chaplain's ministry is to be a bridge between the secular and the sacred.

Una pregunta que con frecuencia nos hacemos ─ Cual es la diferencia entre el Capellán y el Pastor?
Ambos llamados son magníficos en la vida de una persona y son necesarios desesperadamente, pero son muy diferentes ministerios. El ministerio de un pastor se ocupa principalmente de aquellos a su alrededor, o podemos decir, basado mas bien en su iglesia. Mientras que el ministerio de Capellanes se ocupa mayormente de situaciones fuera de la iglesia y es mas basado en situaciones comunitarias. Una definición sencilla de Capellanes es "un ministerio en el lugar de empleo”, en otra palabras, “Capellanes tienen una iglesia que es actualmente fuera de las paredes del edificio de la iglesia, la cual es llamada comunidad. Capellanes sirven personas de todas las religions, sin discriminar. Un Capellán a nivel local y nacional tiene protección Constitucional, donde un pastor no es un Capellán ordenado no es reconocido por el gobierno, por la separación de la Iglesia y el estado. El ministerio del Capellán es ser un Puente entre lo secular y lo sagrado.
