Dr. Vincent Cucchetti - Chief Chaplain
Our philosophy at the International Association of Chaplains is that every reverend, minister, and denominational clergyman must have a chaplain covering and specific training in chaplainry to be effective outside the four walls of the church. Chaplains, as pastors of the un-churched, minister in every area of secular society without representing any church or denomination. The differences between ministering in a church setting and in secular society at large are profound. It is our burning desire to train and equip those called by His Name to navigate these special dynamics of chaplainry "For Such A Time As This".
