NSTC Religious Ministry Vision
The chaplains, Religious Programs Specialists, and staff of the Great
Lakes area Religious Ministries epartments (RMD) hope you will see us as
a support system throughout your time aboard. We are
available to provide divine services, confidential counseling, prayer,
and clergy support in your daily lives--and, if need be, in times of
crisis. You can contact a chaplain through your chain of
command, the chapel office or through your workspace. Our
Religious Ministry Team (RMT) will meet you where you are, when you need
it, with what matters.

The Navy Chaplain Corps Core Capabilities:
- Provide professional religious
ministry through worship services, religious education, weddings,
funerals, and other religious rituals and rites.
- Facilitate for the religious
needs of our people from other religious traditions by identifying
their religious needs and coordinating support from other chaplains,
civilian clergy, and lay leaders.
- Care for all service members
and families with complete confidentiality, dignity, respect and
compassion, regardless of an individual’s beliefs. This includes
making informed and professional referrals to help our people
develop the spiritual resilience to cope with the inevitable
hardships of military life.
- Advise commanding officers on
the accommodation of religious needs; on the spiritual, moral,
ethical well-being of our people; and on religious matters that
affect the command’s mission.
