Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy is the most effective means of reaching secular society because there are times chaplains can go where the church cannot go. Chaplaincy provides many opportunities to extend the ministry of the local church beyond the “four walls” of the church facility.

7 Areas of Oklahoma Baptist Chaplaincy

There are seven major areas of ministry in chaplaincy:

  1. Healthcare
  2. Pastoral counseling
  3. Law enforcement
  4. Corrections
  5. Military
  6. Corporate/industry
  7. Disaster relief
Each of these areas of chaplaincy provides opportunities for full-time, part-time, and volunteer participation of ministry oriented persons. Each of these categories of chaplain ministry also provides the opportunity for the local church and its staff to extend their ministry into the community that may otherwise be closed to them. Christ modeled worship and ministry.

We are having a Chaplain Fellowship on August 10, 2024 at the OBU Geiger Center (Rooms 219/220)

Sherri Coale, retired OU girls basketball coach, will be the featured speaker.  Copies of her book will be available to purchase and be signed. 

The event is from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. with lunch and door prizes.  Cost is $10.00 per person. 

Registration starts at 8:30 and program starts at 9:15

Testimonies

Not only beneficial for my chaplaincy, but life.

Greatly appreciate the opportunity and the information to seek how God is directing myself and church ministry.

Very grateful for the generous, friendly, supportive help of all involved.

I’m thankful we have people that care enough to make me better.

Dr. Paget is the BEST

Greatly appreciate the opportunity to learn and find ways to apply the information to our church ministries and within our community.

Dr. Paget has a great way of teaching the class.  Thank you.

Dr. Naomi Paget did an exceptional job.  I had heard about her from a chaplain friend of mine.  All I heard was great things, and I was not disappointed!!

The facility & hospitality by all involved was above & beyond my expectations!!
