Chaplain Membership

If you are an Ordained Minister and you feel the calling to be a Police or Fireman Chaplain, we ask you to Seek the Lord’s will and join our cause. There is a one-time application fee of $100 plus $50 per year renewal.

These fees will cover the cost of your certificate, wallet I.D. and our expenses in maintaining your membership benefits. In addition, you will receive information on all Police & Fire Departments in your area and how and where you can be of help. We meet once a month to find ways to help your town or city with food, clothes and counseling for families that need it.

We will also provide training needed to perform the great task of this type of Ministry. We can not begin to thank you enough for joining this great association. Chaplains are in high demand, and we urge those chaplains who are dedicated in leading the lost to Jesus Christ and guiding Police and Fighters through a very difficult job to download our application and get started today.

Supporting Membership

A Chaplain’s work is primarily volunteer. Similar to volunteer Fireman and Police reserves, very few are paid for the work they do in their town or city. Money, sweat and blood and sometimes their lives is what they give. The IPFCA needs your support to help us help them with your annual Supporting Membership.

Your help is greatly appreciated and is tax deductible. You will receive a letter of thanks and a Certificate of Honorary Membership to the IPFCA along with a sticker you can proudly display on your car letting Police & Firefighters know you support them in the communities in which they serve.

If you would prefer to make a one-time donation, please visit our Secure Donations page.
