Find a chaplain


Please scroll down for a complete list of our graduates and their contact information.

Recent research has shown New Englanders to be among the “least churched” people in the nation, with approximately three out of every four having no connection to a local mosque, synagogue, sangha or church. People without religious affiliations may be deeply spiritual, and require the services of an Interfaith chaplain when they have something to celebrate, or are in crisis. This is the community need that ChIME chaplains meet, and it’s growing every year. Also known as Interfaith Officiants or Celebrants, ChIME chaplains are trained to invite inter-spirituality, to respect people from any of the world’s various faith traditions, and to assist people without religious traditions in identifying their own beliefs in preparation for various life transitions and celebrations.

Since 2004 ChIME has educated and ordained 175+ Interfaith Ministers who serve in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and in a number of other states. Each has fulfilled the ChIME requirements for graduation, including 500 hours of classroom time, 150 hours of volunteer service in the first year, and a supervised internship of 150 hours in the second year or optional third year.

Increasingly, local agencies are reaching out to ChIME for the volunteer services of a student chaplain. Also incoming students often bring with them the desire to serve a particular community or to serve children, women, men, the aged, the dying, the incarcerated,  or the homeless.
