Sponsor Level -

Sponsor Level is a non-active level of chaplaincy. This group consists of people who love the chaplaincy ministry and believe in their cause and want to be apart of the chaplain program only in a supportive way. They support the ministry both prayerfully and financially as other areas as deemed necessary. Sponsors may be a company, a church or an individual. Sponsors may take training that is offered but this level does not require any training as it is a non-functioning role. Sponsors are invited to attend all banquets and programs and are encouraged to help in the booth at conference.

(To see details for other Levels see "Levels & Requirements" in top menu.)
