QUANTICO, Va. – “The candidates were energetic, open-minded, and flexible in regards to how they learned and experience life in the Marine Corps context,” said Chaplain Lt. Brian Burd, Marine Corps Officer Candidates School.
The chaplains came from various denominations such as Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Assemblies of God, Roman Catholic Priest and Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.
The Navy Chaplain Candidate Program allows individuals working toward their graduate education or ecclesial requirements to be commissioned as officers and experience what it means to be a Navy chaplain and discern if becoming a chaplain is a right for them.
