Our next ACA Certification Class will begin sometime in January 2024.

We will keep you informed. You can go online to register and pay.   Click on “Apply here for the Next class.”


After taking this class how are you preparing yourself to serve as a Chaplain and how will
you act differently in the next critical incident you encounter? I am listening to all of the
teachings and testimonies of the teachers and trying to picture myself in that role,
questioning if I have the basic skills and aptitudes, and desire to serve in that particular
segment of Chaplaincy. All of the teachers have a heart and desire to serve in their area of
chaplaincy and it’s good to see the crossover of the different specific areas. So all of the
classes are helpful and as I proceed, I’m getting a better understanding of how I can serve.
I think that with the good cross-section of information, I’m in a better position to
understand my role, which helps me to minister rightly-and in understanding my role, to
be free to minister without over-stepping or under-stepping by striving or being too timid.
I may be the best guy available at some point in time and believe that if I’m the best guy
available- then I’ll do my best at that time. And that will be “Good enough” if God is asking.
