Training And Grant Information. As chaplains we reach out to thousands
of people through the Lords' ministry of presence. There are times
that chaplains themselves have tragedys and problems in their own
lives. Some loose their jobs, their homes, some have sickness and
deaths in their families, there are many situations that cause problems
in our lives. For that reason we also try to find ways for members
to earn income for their ministries and for their families if needed.

Christian Law Association:
The Christian Law Association is a "ministry of legal helps."
Its purpose is to provide free legal assistance to Bible-believing
churches and Christians who are experiencing legal difficulty in practicing
their religious faith because of governmental regulation, intrusion,
or prohibition of one form or another. Since 1969, the number of legal
attacks on ministries has exploded. CLA receives in excess of 100,000
phone calls annually, not counting the thousands of pieces of correspondence
from those who are in some way facing legal difficulties for doing
what the Bible commands. These cases involve Christians arrested for
witnessing to others in public, public school students being told
they do not have the right to read their Bibles at school, churches
being excluded from communities, Christians being fired for sharing
their faith at work, and thousands of other shocking assaults on our
precious religious freedoms.If you have a problem contact the CLA
for more information. Visit
