Associate Chaplain Program
Associate Chaplains are area clergy who volunteer their time in offering pastoral care to patients and their families, as well as the staff of Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital. Associate Chaplains commit to on-call coverage three weeks a year and carry a pager by which they are contacted when needed.
Continuing education and training is provided for associate chaplains through Pastoral Care Services on an ongoing basis. In addition, classes and programs geared towards equipping local clergy in pastoral care are offered on a regular basis. Call 434.517.3995 for more information.
People serving in the Associate Chaplain Program must have ordination/license or endorsement by their faith group or be enrolled in religious or theological studies in a college or school of theological studies, have life experience in a ministry setting and/or specialized training for ministry. All Associate Chaplains are required to participate in hospital orientation and Pastoral Care Services training.
