Did you know there is a gap in funding?

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.  

 

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.   

 

In 2021 we have a funding deficit of $300K. 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 churches and individuals to regularly support Chaplains financially. 

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

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 per year. 

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 per month.  

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. 

When a church or individual sign up to support a Chaplain, we commit to providing regular updates on the work of that Chaplain and the Chaplaincy team more generally.
