How you can help

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. 

The work of a chaplain closely resembles that of a missionary – embracing the calling to serve others outside of the church setting.

An important consideration in Chaplaincy ministry is how the ministry is funded. 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 and 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. Most importantly to ask more churches and individuals to pray for Chaplains, and also to ask individuals and churches to regularly support Chaplains financially. 

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

INDIVIDUAL PARTNERSHIPS

We are hoping that each Chaplain can have an active ongoing relationship with 7 individual partners, for prayer, to receive regular updates, and for ongoing financial support of $50/month.

CHURCH PARTNERSHIPS

We are hoping that each Chaplain can have an active ongoing relationship with 4 churches, for prayer, to receive regular updates, and for ongoing financial support of $3000/year.

Of course, every financial contribution is very much appreciated. Some may be able to give above the amounts mentioned, and some less. We simply provide these numbers as a general guide. And above all we value prayer support, so even if churches and individuals cannot give financially please sign up to receive prayer updates.

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.

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.
