Chaplain (Lt Col) Jimmie G. Boozer

We are a diverse group here today representing multiple religions, faith groups and beliefs. So as to accommodate everyone in this time of prayer (benediction, etc.), I invite all here to pray openly or silently in the manner your faith group prays, and I will pray in the manner that my faith group addresses God. Let us pray: . . . . . .

GROUP 1 SQUADRON CHAPLAINS READ THIS !!!

     As Group 1 chaplain I would like to encourage all chaplains in the group to consider becoming mission qualified. Mission Qualified and supervised trainee status allows chaplains to minister actively on practice and actual missions. Whether actual or practice the spiritual needs of cadets and seniors need to be met and are still very real. Physical fatigue, exertion and stressful moments on the mission may require the watchful and careful eye of the chaplain to lighten or mitigate these concerns. Chaplains conduct worship services at the mission and/or help those worshippers to attend nearby services. The chaplain has ministry of presence or actual ministry with CAP members or family members of those whose loved ones are the object of our air and ground searches.

     An added benefit has arisen for those chaplains who become mission qualified in direct Air Force ministry. The Air Force has allowed some CAP chaplains, who are mission qualified, to minister to active duty units and personnel. This can be arranged by MSA (military support authorization) through the Air Force Unit Commander, CAP National Chaplain and the Air Force Base chaplain. We have at least one chaplain in the Illinois Wing presently ministering to an active duty Air Force squadron.  As of this writing, Illinois wing only has three mission qualified chaplains in the entire wing. We need many more. Please contact your senior or wing chaplain or professional development officer to find out what you must do to begin training to become mission qualified. It will be well worth the effort for you and the entire wing.
