Interfaith ministry is a mix of established forms of ministry and cutting-edge possibilities that expand the boundaries of how one can be of service. Some ministries, such as hospital or hospice chaplaincy, offer a more traditional career path. Other emerging opportunities, such as eco-chaplaincy or animal chaplaincy, tend to be more entrepreneurial.
Whether in a traditional setting or one that is on the frontier of what ministry is becoming, the ability to provide care for people of any faith – and those with no faith tradition – will make Interfaith ministers a valuable asset in any number of contexts.
Below is a sampling of how some of CHI ‘s ordained clergy are providing spiritual care and promoting peace, healing, harmony, and justice in the world. We hope their stories and forms of ministerial service will inspire you as you discern your own vocational path.
