Firefighters For Christ Chaplaincy

Firefighters For Christ’s first Chaplain was founder and president John White.  He made himself available across the globe to any firefighter at any time for help and spiritual support.  Whether it was stopping in at a firehouse for coffee and stories, visiting a firefighter in the hospital, or traveling across the Nation to comfort and pray with firefighters after 9/11, he is an example of what our Chaplain program is today.

The FFC Chaplaincy program is a volunteer, non- denominational, group of trained Chaplains to provide help for those in need of emotional and spiritual guidance, encouragement and support. Our role is first and foremost one of presence and caring. Our faith in Jesus Christ shows us how to come alongside someone who is having difficulties navigating circumstances of life. We are motivated by the love Jesus Christ has for each one of us, and we desire to extend His love and grace to all.

Our Chaplain Services include, but are not limited to:
•Invocations, benedictions, special presentations, etc.
•Visiting sick or injured firefighters and families
•Providing care during bereavement situations
•Help with CISM and peer support functions
•Assist Fire Departments and firefighters when requested
•Provide a presence at incidents and disasters
•Be available to talk with firefighters in confidence, when needed

We are aware that many fire departments and agencies don’t have a Chaplain program, and our desire is to be available for those departments and their personnel when needed.
