Welcome to the Army’s Chaplain Services Center

The Call of the US Army Chaplain Corps

The purpose of this website is to provide you a variety of ways to better define and strengthen your personal values.  This site complements the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness (CSF) website by providing the chaplain resources applicable to what CSF calls “Spiritual Fitness.”  Resources are provided here that include monotheistic, polytheistic, pantheistic, and nontheitic resources.This site is not intended to promote any particular religious preference or to promote theistic over nontheistic perspectives.  This is also not an instruction course on world religions or a hub for religious conversion.  Chaplains help service members in a variety of ways, but selecting a core belief system is an individual effort and chaplains are careful not to show bias.

To avoid bias, the listed resources are limited to current chaplain endorsing agencies and general internet references on Beliefnet, About, and eHow.com.  For religions and philosophies not represented in the chaplaincy, current lay leader endorsers and prospective endorsers may be referenced.  For additional information, like youth groups, study groups, or faith-based counseling, contact your local chaplain or the endorsing agencies.

The overarching goal is quickly connect individuals with spiritual or naturalistic personal values they already have.  Soldiers, families, and civilians are invited to review the links above to connect with their theistic or nontheistic beliefs as well as non-sectarian support and general interest items.
