Hands on Ministry (HOM) – Volunteer Chaplaincy Training

Hands on Ministry provides pastoral care skills training for the Christian who is ministering to the neighbor across the street, co-worker, family member, friend, stranger or in a volunteer chaplaincy setting. Effective ministry involves meeting a need, touching a life and sharing about Christ. HOM training is an excellent resource to help a Christian to be better equipped for ministry. HOM trainers combine the HOM training manual in conjunction with 12-hours of classroom instruction which provides an introduction to volunteer chaplain ministry. 

Hands on Ministry training can now be taken for credit in Truett Seminary’s Online Certificate Program (OCP) by contacting David Tate at (254) 710-6351 or David_Tate@baylor.edu for more information.
