Questions and Answers

I have a few National Chaplain’s Prayer Books and Chaplain’s Handbooks from National that I will be glad to distribute at no charge.

The National Chaplain Year-End Report will give you a flavor as to what the position entails.

Every year the National organization holds a Department Chaplains Conference in Indianapolis. This presentation will you a quick overview as to what transpired.

There are some new resource materials available . The one that is pending is a book I’m working on about my experiences and thoughts as National Chaplain. I call it “Following the Path.” It will include all of the prayers I presented, memorial services and other presentations I made during my term in office.

The “Have Chaplain’s Source Book, Will Travel” discusses an approach to being prepared for most any contingency that might arise during your chaplaincy.

We always leave time for “Questions and Answers” and will gladly hold over to speak with anyone with a question on their mind to answewr or respond to it.

I look forward to seeing every TCA member there and hopefully, those that are newly joining our Association.

‘Til then, Happy Trails and Blessings!
