The US Navy currently has a need for chaplains. Right now there are thousands of uniformed service members serving in the Navy, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines and Marines without adequate chaplain support. These brave citizens are members of your congregations and organizations dotted all over America and have answered the call to advance the cause of freedom around the world. I hope this letter is the means God is using to open your eyes to a new and exciting ministry opportunity for you.
The present Global War on Terrorism will probably go on for some time and comes at a great cost. Our men and women of our uniformed services place their lives on the line daily in response to this ongoing conflict. They need a chaplain to serve alongside them at sea, while forward deployed, or while performing a search and rescue mission. Every uniformed service member has the need to discover the deeper things of God and their purpose for life and work.
Amidst the thundering launch of strike aircraft off the rolling deck of an aircraft carrier, to the terrifying clamor of vicious firefight, to the intentional care provided by medical centers, to the family members left behind, our service members and their families look to their chaplains for provision of authentic faith and hope. What an experience! What an opportunity!
Qualifications for both Full-time Active Duty and Part-time Reserve Chaplains:
Maximum age: Must commission by 47th Birthday
Education: The equivalent of a 72-semester hour Master of Divinity (must be 2/3 in residence)
Experience: Minimum of 2 years religious leadership experience
Physical: Meet US Navy height and weight requirements and physical fitness standards.

The United Church of Huntington (UCH) (http://www.unitedchurchofhuntington.com), located in a rural area near Wellington, Ohio, believes Scripture to be the inerrant Word of God, and is our only authority for faith and practice. We hold to a very literal and conservative interpretation of Scripture and we document these interpretations and beliefs in our Articles of Faith. We value expository preaching and our approach to worship is traditional with a variety of hymns balanced with praise and worship songs. We are a congregationally led church body, have an average attendance of 120 for Sunday worship across a broad range of ages, with youth programs, prayer meetings, and small community groups meeting weekly. Many of our attendees come to our services from surrounding rural communities. We are affiliated with the biblically based Conservative Congregational Christian Conference.
We acknowledge as our sole head, Jesus Christ, the son of God and the Savior of man, and acknowledge as brothers and sisters in Christ all who share this confession. We look to the Word of God and to the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to prosper our creative and redemptive work in our community and world. We claim as our own the faith of the historic church expressed in the ancient creeds and reclaimed in the basic insights of the Protestant Reformers. In accordance with the teaching of our Lord and the practice prevailing among evangelical Christians, we recognize two Sacraments; Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
In seeking a new Senior Pastor, we want a compassionate and sensitive man with a shepherd’s heart, who possesses a strong belief in authority of Scripture, and whose preaching is inspiring and compelling.

Our congregation gives joyfully and substantively to missions, so this Pastor’s work must include a vision and passion for local and global missions.
