Adopt-A-Chaplain Program is for the purpose of enlisting conferences, churches, couples, and individuals to participate in the extensive ministries of our chaplains by intercessory prayer for them and their families, for the salvation of souls, and to contribute annually to this ministry of the church. A suggested annual contribution of $100 or more will assist in providing for scholarships for college and seminary students, current books and materials, annual retreats (advances) for our active duty chaplains and retired chaplains, and travel expenses for the director to visit our chaplains, as well as liaison with the Chiefs of Chaplains and their staffs.
We have additional expenses of membership dues in the NAE Commission on Chaplains, NCMAF (National Conference on Ministry to the Armed Forces), and ECVAC (Endorsers Conference for Veterans Affairs Chaplaincy). Currently, 50% of chaplains' tithes are being sent to RDC from conferences for the Chaplains Ministries. Our financial support base must be increased. I have designed a commemorative coin to be minted for those who become members of Adopt-A-Chaplain Program. I plan to have a brochure printed in the near future about it.
