Institutions that hire chaplains often require a “denominational endorsement” as a requirement of employment. While the NACCC is not a credentialing organization, when requested we will issue a letter to the institution that confirms their membership in an active NACCC member church. In the case of the military, we will also complete and file the requisite forms. The person for whom this letter or form is being filed must have a Minister’s Disclosure File with the NACCC and must also be a member in good standing in an active NACCC member church. The NACCC may also require a background check which must be paid for by the chaplain-candidate unless other arrangements are made.
We recommend that you become a member of the Association of Professional Chaplains.
