#3 Why do we have sports chaplains?
For some, the term 'chaplain' conjures up a religious person or moral police. On the contrary, chaplains are approachable, friendly and trained volunteers who can provide a listening ear, practical help, pastoral care, stress management support, encouragement and prayer. They serve all persons without discrimination regardless of religion, beliefs and lifestyle. Chaplains consider well-being of the total person rather than focusing on sporting performance. Their main area of expertise is pastoral and spiritual. They simply want to show the love of God in a practical way so please feel free to talk to them anytime!
