  • title imageLeaders, have you noticed how certain topics and issues find a current emphasis when the Holy Spirit is seeking to say something clearly to The Church. The challenge of being outward focused in our churchmanship is strong in this season.  Why is this? Because it is so easy to move away from our original purpose for existing.

Chaplaincy

Assemblies of God has a rapidly developing Chaplaincy Ministry.

A growing number of AoG Ministers and lay Church Members are serving God in such diverse places as prisons, hospitals, schools & the armed forces. The work is pastoral, offering compassion and a listening ear, but also affirming and encouraging, bringing an informed Christian view to the places that we visit and people we meet. Our aim is to care for people at their point of need, communicating the love of Christ in a compassionate and practical way.

AOG does not directly employ Chaplains but provides endorsement for our Ministers to work as Chaplains. Endorsement for NHS and Prison Chaplains is through our membership of the Free Churches Group and for Armed Forces Chaplaincy is through the United Navy, Army and Air Force Board.

AoG work in partnership with Elim Pentecostal and Apostolic Church UK.

As chaplains, it is our high privilege to love and to lead the people in our care.

It is our responsibility to pray for, to serve, to care and to extravagantly love them. Chaplains must be willing to invest in self-care too.

We believe attendance should be a priority for every chaplain and will prove to be a wise investment of your time and resources.

This annual conference is a brilliant time for pastors and members of our churches who are involved in chaplaincy, it is also designed for individuals who are interested in getting involved.

Alongside the programme and speaker line-up, the opportunity to build friendships and meet up with others who are passionate about chaplaincy ministry is an amazing experience.

Training

leadershipheader

Jesus was clear about His priorities during His ministry years. He chose disciples and He trained them to carry on with His work on earth after His death and resurrection. He left the Church with a mandate to ‘make disciples of all nations’. We take this command very seriously.

Jesus hasn’t called us just to attend church every now and then, or to read the Bible and pray occasionally. He doesn’t want us to settle for a religious experience but to enjoy a personal relationship with Him. He wants us to be His disciples, following His example of character and morality, expressing His love and communicating His message of forgiveness to the world.

Most AOG churches will have a Bible study group, discipleship class or a mentoring program. Others may have a Bible school, internship program or even some vocational training programs. Each church will express this priority in a different way.

As part of our ongoing commitment to training disciples and leaders for the work they are called to, we plan within the next 12 months to comission our Area training academies. These will take place across the nation at various locations with training from expert practitioners and leaders in their specified field. These training academies will be presenting a number of different modules and courses designed to help you as a person to grow in your faith and leadership development. As a movement AOG also has a national Bible college called Mattersey Hall at our National Ministry Centre in Doncaster.
