Chaplain Program

Building a Healthy Spirit

For almost 175 years, the mission of the YMCA has been central and foundational to our work:

“To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.”

The Chaplain Program is just one of the many ways the Y intentionally lives out our mission. Our Chaplains demonstrate the love of Jesus through serving, loving and caring for the staff, members and guests of the YMCA through faith-based programming or just a listing ear and an encouraging word.

Speaking of encouraging words, one of our Chaplains produced a podcast that helps people read through the whole Bible. (Click on any of the episodes below.)

As Chaplains, we are here to help you to be healthy spiritually. This includes feeding on the good food of God’s word, and regularly exercising our faith, in obedience to God’s word. And, in these uncertain times, while we are limited in our ability to meet face-to-face, we wanted to provide this online resource for you.
