Process for becoming a Chaplain

The Wing often receives questions on the procedures for becoming a chaplain because the process is quite different than any other CAP position. The person who is considering becoming a chaplain will need to meet the standards as set in the CAP regulations.

The candidate must first submit a regular senior member application and actually become a senior member and complete Level I training before submitting a chaplain application. It is very important to contact the Wing Chaplain as early in the process as possible as there are many documents and approvals needed from different bodies and endorsers before a candidate becomes a chaplain.

Chaplains and Character Development Instructors working together

The goal is for every Composite Squadron to have a Chaplain or a Character Development Instructor (CDI) and that they will lead the cadets in a character development discussion once a month using materials provided from the national level of CAP. These monthly discussions are a key part of the cadet program and are required for cadet promotions.

CDI’s work under the direction of a chaplain and the Assistant to the Wing Chaplain Maj. Dave Snyder. CDI is one of many professional development tracks that are available to qualified senior members who have a heart to positively influence the next generation.

Chaplaincy Reports

CAPF 34 is to be submitted electronically by all Chaplains, Character Development Instructors, and visiting clergy performing chaplain service assistance semi-annually no later than January 5th and July 5th of each year.
