Mission and Scope

The Command Chaplain ensures that a professionally trained and ready Chaplaincy provides religious, spiritual, moral and ethical advice and services to the Combined Arms Center, tenant organizations, and members of the military community. He provides and ensures the free exercise of religion for Soldiers, their family members, Department of Defense civilians, and other authorized personnel in a seamless Chaplaincy system.

 

In meeting this critical mission, the Chaplain is responsible for supervision, support and administration of religious support across the spectrum of military missions within the Combined Arms Center and Fort Leavenworth. This includes the US Disciplinary Barracks and other tenant organizations. Unlike civilian counterparts, the Army Chaplain operates in virtually any environment where Soldiers are deployed and often conducts services and provides support under the same hazardous conditions that any Soldier faces. In many cases, they become the moral and ethical mentors to our Soldiers facing extreme and unknown conditions.

 

At Fort Leavenworth, the Chaplain trains and supervises the Command Ministry Team. Collectively, they provide spiritual and religious services, to include professional support to the command, family life ministry, chaplain instructors, pastoral care and counseling, and cooodination and collaboration with Department of Army and Department of Defense Chaplaincy. In addition, they provide spiritual strength and support, including training and awareness for Soldiers and families impacted by the Global War on Terrorism.
