Chaplains and pastors both provide counseling and spiritual ministry. While pastors are usually affiliated with a congregation, chaplains ministry in various organizations and agencies. This can provide unique challenges and opportunities. In order to best support our chaplains Eastern District and Franconia Conferences host quarterly chaplains luncheons. These luncheons provide chaplains with the opportunity to connect with one another, share resources, stories, and learn from each others experiences. If you serve as a chaplain and interested in joining these luncheons contact Mary Nitzsche at
