Welcome to Occupational Chaplains Association (OCA) video training. Chaplaincy is a Christian ministry for which special training for awareness is needful. The introductory training presented in twenty lessons will cover what we call “Chaplain’s Essentials” and is aimed to prepare the local church member, male or female, for spiritual care service in the local church under the direction of the pastor. Completing the lessons will certify a participant and qualify the participant to apply for endorsement as a chaplain with the UPCI. The participant will become knowledgeable about the three focus areas of OCA and the basic duties and tasks of a spiritual caregiver.
In this first series of lessons, a participant will learn that as a chaplain educated in religious principles and trained to work with people, the participant's benefit and value is increased many fold.
Level 2: Chaplain’s Essentials Part 2 addresses “The Person and Work of an OCA Chaplain.” The purpose for Chaplain’s Essentials is to train and certify men and women in the local church for basic spiritual care ministry—chaplaincy. Under the supervision of the pastor, volunteer OCA chaplains go into the community to minister and reach people who are in crisis and have emotional and spiritual needs. Part 2 provides additional insight to professional development, core values, methods and techniques of care-giving, and precautions chaplains should practice.
