should each judge your own conduct. If it is good, then you can
be proud of what you yourself have done, without having to compare
it with what someone else has done.
Fellowship Ministries is dedicated to recruiting, training, ordaining,
licensing, motivating, and mobilizing an international network of
chaplains and ministries who have been called to serve where ever
needed worldwide. From the beginning, the spread of the Gospel was
a lay movement. Men like Peter and John were untrained fishermen.
The majority of ministry and missionary activity in the early Church
and Ministry was accomplished by nonprofessionals, ordinary men
and women involved in secular work as their occupations. Jesus entrusted
the laity "ordinary people" with major responsibilities
of spreading the Gospel. He took fishermen from their boats, He
made them fishers of men. Jesus knew that ordinary people would
become extraordinary when empowered by the Holy Spirit. When the
Lord calls us into His ministry He does not place any limitations
on us, we are only limited by our own imaginations.
members of Chaplain Fellowship Ministries are ordained and licensed
as nondenominational chaplains and ministers. We are a one of a
kind ministry of presence with members and affiliate ministries
serving worldwide. We come from all faith groups, ethnic, gender
and educational backgrounds. Chaplain Fellowship Ministries by God's
grace and guidance has been molded and shaped after the Ministry
of Jesus, and we are growing by leaps and bounds every day. We are
looking for real people who are serious about their calling. The
members of Chaplain Fellowship Ministries are very real hard working
people with the heart and compassion to reach out to those who are
lost or in need.
Happy are those who remain faithful under trials, because when they
succeed in passing such a test, they will receive as their reward
the life which God has promised to those who love him.
Fellowship is about the great commission. Do you feel like you are
being called to do something that will make a difference in your
life, but you don't know where to start? I think that maybe we have
all felt that call at some point in our lives. Becoming ordained
and licensed as a Chaplain and Minister will take you far beyond
your wildest imagination, it will make you a much larger person
in the spirit of the Lord than you ever dreamed you could be. As
Chaplains and Ministers if we see someone in need and have the ability
to help them and don't, how can we say that the love of Jesus abides
in us? Never forget that what we go after here on earth, determines
where we go in the hereafter. We make a living from what we get,
but we make a life from what we give. Anyone can give without loving,
but no one can love without giving.
Be generous, and you will be prosperous. Help others, and you
will be helped. Those who are good are rewarded here on earth, so
you can be sure that wicked and sinful people will be punished.
Fellowship Ministries is internationally recognized as a faith based
nondenominational ministry of presence that offers everyone including
the every day hard working man or woman an opportunity to serve
in the position of an ordained Chaplain and Minister through specific
ministry programs. Chaplain Fellowship offers ordination, ecclesiastical
endorsements and certifications in your chosen field of ministry
thereby allowing anyone who feels God has called them to be able
to minister at some level as a ordained Chaplain and Minister. Our
Mission is to ordain, qualify, equip, offer training and to officially
recognize those seeking legal ministry license, ordination, endorsement
and certification documentation as ministers, pastors, priests and

we have to prove the need for nursing home Chaplains, no one should
ever be treated this way. When Chaplains make regular visits to
nursing homes, it cuts down on this type of mistreatment. Not all
nursing homes have this type of abuse, but there are many that do.
This little lady is a child of God, and there is no doubt that there
is a special place in Heaven for her. This type of abuse is a disgrace
and we should all be ashamed to allow such treatment of our senior
citizen. As legally ordained Chaplains we CAN make a difference
in this world, we just need to get out there and do it. All it takes
is good hearted people who have compassion, mercy, kindness, love
and understanding. If you don't want to be a legally ordained chaplain
or minister fine, just please do something in your life to make
a difference in the lives of those who are hurting, suffering, who
have lost everything, or have nothing, and no where to turn. We
have to be there for each others, as brothers and sisters in Jesus
Christ, it is up to us!
Dear brothers and sisters, what's the use of saying you have faith
if you don't prove it by your actions? That kind of faith can't
know by building and strengthening our communities and proclaiming
the Gospel of Jesus to the world at large we are doing what He has
called us to do. Jesus has poured out His Spirit upon us, we are
to help the lost who are seeking salvation, we are to help those
seeking healing for the spirit soul and body with the anointing
that rests upon each of us in the name of Jesus.
God the Father considers to be pure and genuine religion is this:
to take care of orphans and widows in their suffering and to keep
oneself from being corrupted by the world.
Chaplain Fellowship Ministries will not judge you, belittle you
or criticize you for your past, or your lack of a formal education.
Please understand it takes all of us to get the job done, just as
Jesus recruited many from different backgrounds. It does not take
a college graduate to walk into a biker bar full of bikers, in fact
we would not advise it, it takes a biker who has been there. Nursing
home chaplaincy or ministry takes a chaplain who is ordained and
has compassion, mercy, love and understanding, it takes those who
have the love of Jesus Christ in their hearts. It requires someone
who knows how to listen, and many times someone to just be there
with them when they are dying, the thought of dying alone is very
scary for senior citizens. Who better to work with our returning
troops or veterans of other wars than veteran who are chaplains
themselves that have been there and understand their pain, suffering,
fears and disappointments.
judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy
triumphs over judgment. Does anyone not want a merciful judgment
from God, before whom all must stand?
we begin our work as an ordained chaplains and ministers we can
be confident that the Lord who has already started a good work in
us, will complete it. Please never let anyone tell you that you
are not good enough for the Lord's ministry, or that the Lord has
not called you into His ministry. There is no human being on the
face of this earth who has the right to judge or decide who has
been called, or who has not been called. We understand that it is
the Lord who ordains, we simply recognizes what He has already done.
all need Jesus as our Lord and Savior in our everyday lives. He
is the one who can lift us above the degrading forces of evil in
the world that tries to tell us we are not good enough. It is Jesus
who holds all things together, including our lives. Become a member
and receive your God given right to ordination and license as a
legal member of the clergy. Take a leap of faith, and watch your
whole world, and the way you see thing, literally transform before
your very eyes.

about whom we listen to. Never let anyone tell you that you are
not good enough or smart enough to follow the Lords' calling in

believe all Christians have been given spiritual gifts to fulfill
their callings. Ministry ordination is a spiritual gift and calling
directly from God and is not to be taken lightly. He chooses to
call who he will, or to use any instrument, to accomplish His will.
When we act upon our calling, we become a member of HIS Ministry.

thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler

are ministers called to serve God's people as commissioned by the
sacred Word of God. In Christian grace and duty Chaplains respond
with love and compassion to people's needs in their whole existence.
Chaplains embrace the understanding that human beings are created
in the image of God with uniqueness and freedom to think, act and
feel. When we do our best, God will do the rest. Jesus
made it clear if we give a man a fish, we feed him for one day,
but if we teach him to fish, we feed him for a lifetime. God carries
out His plan through those obedient to Him in spite of their human

our Lord and Savior beside us we go into each day as we are, just
as our Lord went into each day ready to serve, to seek and to save
those who are lost; to look for opportunity to love and to heal.
With our Lord and Savior beside us we can love just as we are, unconditionally,
without regard for ourselves sacrificially and without hesitation.
By seeking our Lord and Savior fully, honestly and humbly, we can
go through each day, just as we are.
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we
shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity,
let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household
of faith [fellow believers]".

Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members
do not all have the same function, so in Jesus we who are many form
one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different
gifts, according to the grace given us. If a mans gift is
prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is
serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it
is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the
needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let
him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
