The International Fellowship of Chaplains, Inc.
The International Fellowship of Chaplains, Inc. (IFOC) is a non profit, providing training, recognition, certification and information in the varied areas of Chaplaincy. We also interface with the secular and ministry worlds for the purpose of promoting tolerance and understanding, as well as, provide professional, trained and dedicated Chaplains in the various fields of need.
The work of the Chaplain differs greatly from the work of the Pastorate. The Pastor cares for the Spiritual needs of the congregation; whereas, the Chaplain must care for the needs of the Secular World as well.
There are several fields of Chaplaincy, some of which are easily recognized. Others are not. The IFOC endorses all types of Chaplains and recognizes the need for Credentialed Coverage. Some Chaplaincy areas of note are, Police, Fire, Hospital, Jail, Industrial, Transportation, Search & Rescue, Sports, Collegiate, Hospice, Nursing Home, Motor Cycle, and the list goes on. All are valid in scope and design. All need Education, Credentials & Guidance to do the work their hearts desire.

Christian Faith College's correspondence courses, prison inmates are reading the Bible for credit. The school solicits donations to pay for the classes, which are for the inmates' personal use to help them in their religious growth, says Shirley West, an administrative assistant at Christian Faith. For classes such as "Old Testament Survey I," "Book of Acts," and "Foundations of Christian Doctrine," students are responsible, through the use of word-study books, topical Bibles, and commentaries, for researching subject matter for themselves to see what Scripture actually teaches about the subject. The only admissions criteria is simply the desire to do the work.
