Correctional/Rehabilitation Chaplaincy


Prison chaplains provide pastoral counseling, religious teaching and preaching, lead worship for their own faith, conduct funeral and/or memorial services, give death notices, recruit and coordinate volunteers, walk death row inmates to the execution chamber for inmates in a correctional setting.

Chaplains will also administer, supervise, and perform work involved in a program of spiritual welfare for prisoners, staff and if necessary, their family.

Each correctional chaplain is also a representative of his or her faith community and is required to be endorsed by their denominational body in order to qualify as a chaplain.

Correctional chaplains are professionals, with specialized training in the unique dynamics of the corrections world. Most serve as full-time correctional facility employees or part-time contract employees.
