"We need to recruit the next generation of chaplains today. We need chaplains who are passionate about caring for the souls of Soldiers and their Families, and who can operate effectively in a pluralistic environment." - CH(MG) Thomas J. Solhjem, Chief of Chaplains.
Welcome to the U.S. Chaplaincy's Every Chaplain Corps Member a Recruiter (ECAR) Initiative.
Thank you for your interest in learning more about ECAR! On this site you’ll find slide decks and digital materials to help train yourself and others to conduct ECAR activities and events.
You are free to download any items you like. Please DO customize the slide decks to help you present ECAR training to your UMTs. They have been designed to help you conduct this training “as-is!” There are suggested SCRIPT and ADMIN NOTES to help you on most of the slides. You will see other slides available on specific topics that go more in depth than the slides do. They are for your reference. The ultimate goal has been was to make this training easy for you to conduct as possible.
The digital brochures are meant for you to download and share them with potential applicants for the Chaplain Corps.
Finally, as an example of what a "Chaplaincy 101" brief is like, you can download a version used personally by the chaplain who created it as a template to create your own.
