Chaplain & Support

The Navy Chaplain Corps has great need of individuals of faith – of all backgrounds, and all beliefs. Nowhere is access to religious counsel and services more important. And nowhere are the rewards of ministry more intimate and uplifting. Whether conducting worship ceremonies on a ship at sea or assisting clergy with religious activities on a base, you can impact lives in new and exciting ways.

These Enlisted Sailors and Officers hold positions that include Chaplain and Religious Specialist.

If you have a background or interest in these areas or related fields, you could be making the most of it as a Reservist. Making important contributions whenever you’re serving. And using the experience to further your civilian career.
