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 Office hours, faith-based programming or just a listing ear and an encouraging word.

Our YMCA Chaplains are here to serve you! Please stop by the Faith Office and say hello! No appointment is necessary. If you would like to make an appointment to speak with a YMCA chaplain at a specific time, please connect with our Mission Director Dominic Dinger at dominic.dinger@scymca.org, or call 320.253.2664-Ext 125.
