Training airport chaplains for post 9/11 ministry
MetadataShow full item record
Airport chaplains need to be trained as transformational leaders within a post-9/11 world. At present, there is little standardization of training and requirements for chaplains. This project begins with an overview of the history of airport chaplaincy, outlines the roles and responsibilities of airport chaplains, and situates these in relationship to other sectors of chaplaincy. It challenges chaplaincy leaders to focus on new areas of education and training, such as human trafficking, trauma, and religious pluralism. It features experiences of ministry at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson airport and concludes with a theologically-informed proposal for a four-phase training process model.
