Support our chaplains

Chaplaincy has been a ministry of Jericho Road for many years. Through Chaplaincy we have seen people serve in hospitals, prisons and in the wider community. The stories of lives transformed by God working through these ministries are remarkable, exciting and extremely encouraging.

Although we receive government subsidies for work in prisons and hospitals, and some support from General Assembly and other sources, this is insufficient to fund the full cost of placing Chaplains in these settings, as well as the associated infrastructure of the Chaplaincy team.

To keep our Chaplaincy team strong and serving in the long-term, we are seeking to grow our support base for Chaplains. We seek to ask more churches and individuals to pray for our Chaplains and support them financially.

Our plan is for each Chaplain to form two types of support relationships – with individuals and churches.

How you can help

We are hoping that each Chaplain can have an active ongoing relationship with individual partners - to receive regular updates and testimonies, for prayer and for monthly ongoing financial support.


We are hoping that each Chaplain can have an active ongoing relationship with 4 churches - to receive regular updates, for prayer, and for ongoing financial support of $3,000/year.

Every financial contribution makes a difference and is very much appreciated. You may give monthly, or give a one-time donation. Above all we value your prayer support. Even if churches and individuals are not able to give financially, please do not hesitate to sign up to receive prayer updates.

You can also partner with chaplains in creative ways. We are always grateful to hear of churches wanting to get involved.

Pray for our chaplains

Prayer is powerful, and our chaplains would love to have people praying for their day-to-day interactions with the people they’re meeting.  Your partnership makes a great difference to bring the good news of the Gospel to some of the most challenging places.

We can provide you with a regular list of things to pray for our chaplains and those they work with in hospitals, gaols and the emergency services.
