AFRC Religious Support Team

Air Force Reserve Command Chaplain Program

The U.S. Air Force Reserve Chaplain Program is a cooperative and pluralistic ministry. Chaplains adhere to the requirements of their endorsing religious bodies. The Air Force trains and deploys chaplain readiness teams, consisting of chaplains and enlisted personnel. They provide religious ministries during war, contingencies, national emergencies, and military exercises.

Three avenues of ministry

Air Force Reserve chaplainThe Air Force Reserve Chaplain Corps has three avenues of ministry. The Category A program where you serve with a local reserve unit and train one weekend a month; Category B where you serve 12 days annual tour and 12 IDTs in an active duty chapel on an active duty base; and the Chaplain Candidate Program for seminary students.

As the enlisted component of our Religious Support Teams (RST), Chaplain Assistants are uniquely trained in crisis intervention to include intervention counseling in moments of crisis, response to crisis and suicide prevention/ intervention. In addition, Chaplain Assistants are actively engaged and intentionally integrated into unit engagement plans to include unit meetings, commander calls, training with the unit and other unit activities. They are also trained in religious support to hospitals and mortuaries.
