Where and How we Serve

We are the “frontline” of the Jesus Movement

The Original Vision of the Office of the Armed Forces and Federal Ministries
“The real objective of the military chaplaincy [of this Church] is not the welfare of bishops or priests or of the armed forces as an institution, but the care of the flock of Christ – men, women, and children – whose lives are lived in the military establishment around the world.”

(The Living Church, First Sunday of Advent, 1 December 1963)
