Every day men and women in the United States Navy sail across the ocean to strange and exotic lands far from their families and everything that is familiar to them. They will be faced with many harrowing ordeals as a part of their service to this great nation. They deserve to have something which will keep them grounded with something they recognize. For many of those onboard the ships this is found in the Navy Chaplain and the spiritual guidance he provides.
Because the sailors who are in need of your guidance are scattered throughout the world, you may be assigned to the bases and ships throughout the world. This is a great opportunity for those looking for a career in theology that would enjoy being able to travel the world before settling down in a set career.
The majority of the service you will be performing in the United States Navy is by leading ceremonies every Sunday, on holidays and during special events. Your congregation will come from all religions and you will be expected to give guidance in accordance with their religions without judgment.
You will also be called upon to give guidance and comfort to those who are far from home when they miss out on the birth of their children, the deaths of their parents or any other life milestones they may miss while at sea.
