Institutional Chaplains

“Keep on loving each other as brothers. Remember those
in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those
who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”
Hebrews 13:1,3

The Chaplains of the Michigan District are specially trained professionals who serve with you to share the Gospel during life crisis with people away from home and their home congregation who are in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and prisons. They are prepared to deal with grief, health, ethical and other care issues in the light of the Christian faith. They invite referrals and are available for presentations to groups and congregations.

Referrals to any institution in Michigan may be made directly to the District Office at 888.225.2111 or 734.665.3791. We will contact a chaplain or clergyman.
