Youth Chaplaincy

MDD Chaplain Training

Register NOW!  Links are below.

Friday, March 11 – Sunday, March 13
Foothills Unitarian Church, Ft. Collins, CO

Chaplains, in this context, are individuals who work with youth and youth communities to help provide emotional support by ensuring a positive, healthy, and safe environment, by managing crises, and by bringing spiritual resources and guidance to the group.

All District sponsored youth events have a professional adult Chaplain, a youth Peer Chaplain (who is elected yearly), and a team of other trained adult and youth chaplains for seeing to the important work mentioned above.

Each year in March, the District offers a Chaplain Training which provides teaching in these invaluable life skills that participating individuals can then bring home to the respective communities in which they live and work.

The training is action packed with skits, songs, games, worship, discussion, multimedia, and a reverential, yet lighthearted approach to apprehending the role of Chaplain.
