NSTC Religious Ministry Vision

The chaplains, Religious Programs Specialists, and staff of the Great Lakes area Religious Ministries Departments (RMD) hope you will see us as a support system throughout your time aboard.   We are available to provide divine services, confidential counseling, prayer, and clergy support in your daily lives--and, if need be, in times of crisis.   You can contact a chaplain through your chain of command, the chapel office or through your workspace.  Our Religious Ministry Team (RMT) will meet you where you are, when you need it, with what matters.

The Navy Chaplain Corps Core Capabilities:

  • Provide professional religious ministry through worship services, religious education, weddings, funerals, and other religious rituals and rites.
  • Facilitate for the religious needs of our people from other religious traditions by identifying their religious needs and coordinating support from other chaplains, civilian clergy, and lay leaders.
  • Care for all service members and families with complete confidentiality, dignity, respect and compassion, regardless of an individual’s beliefs. This includes making informed and professional referrals to help our people develop the spiritual resilience to cope with the inevitable hardships of military life.
  • Advise commanding officers on the accommodation of religious needs; on the spiritual, moral, ethical well-being of our people; and on religious matters that affect the command’s mission.
