CBF Chaplaincy and Pastoral Counseling
The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship offers endorsement to over 600 Chaplains and Pastoral Counselors in a variety of diverse settings. These areas include military, hospital, pastoral care facilities, hospice, public safety, Department of Veterans Affiars, continuing care communities, corrections, university campuses, and more. The CBF also provides endorsements for membership in various professional organizations, including the Association of Professional Chaplains, American Association of Pastoral Counselors and the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education.
As Chaplains and Pastoral Counselors minister to patients, clients, soldiers, residents, sailors, students, prisoners, etc., they are fulfilling their God given mission. Chaplains and Pastoral Counselors are the expression of the ministry of the CBF and congregations. They serve as the presence of Christ throughout the world and in the most traumatic times in people's lives.
CBF's Council on Endorsement considers applications three times per year. The Council on Endorsement is composed of a diverse group of CBF-endorsees and has been in operation since January 1998. Learn more by viewing our brochure.
The next Council on Endorsement meeting will be held March 14-15, 2014. Applications for first-time endorsement with CBF to be considered at this meeting are due January 31, 2014. Update endorsements, requests for board certification letters and renewal letters, and information updates are accepted at anytime.
