Adult Jail Chaplaincy Training Class 2018


Please note... the 2018 chaplaincy training is currently being revamped. The below details are based on past years and are likely to change. However, this should give you a decent idea of the topics covered and what to expect in future training sessions.

Below are the tentative dates for the Adult Jail Chaplaincy training. To successfully complete the training, you must attend at least eleven of the thirteen sessions including the 2 mandatory sessions.  The 2 mandatory sessions are the first session on The Role of the Chaplain and the session on How To Deliver A Death Notification & Grief Intervention.  Successful completion of the training does not guarantee you an invitation to become part of the Adult Jail Chaplaincy Team.

Class sizes are limited to 20 persons and the course cost is $250 per person. Fees will be refunded only in the event the training class is not held. Checks are payable to: Transforming Jail Ministries and should be mailed to the address at the bottom of this page. Indicate clearly that it is for "AJC Training." If there are less than 5 applicants, the training class will not be held and your payment will be reissued. A $125 deposit is required before the beginning of the course and the remaining balance should be paid by the beginning of the first course. The schedule is listed below.

Training will take place at Christ the King Church - Eastern Hills:

5825 Islington Ave.
Cincinnati, OH 45227

This location is near the intersection of Eerie and Redbank, or from a different direction, behind the old Mainliner in Madisonville:
