The mission of the Louisiana Baptists Chaplaincy Ministry is to provide a network for North American Mission Board Endorsed chaplains serving in Louisiana and to provide a source of information for these chaplains.
For more information, email Jeff Cook or call the Missions & Ministry office at 318.449.4280.
Even though it is our desire to minister to any chaplain, the focus group of the Chaplaincy Ministry is primarily the North American Mission Board Endorsed Chaplains.
Process for NAMB Endorsement
Are you a member of a Louisiana Baptist congregation, a Southern Baptist and a chaplain (full-time, part-time or volunteer) wishing to obtain endorsement? Please understand that Louisiana Baptists do not endorse chaplains; rather this action is conducted by the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. If you are interested in information please click here.
What part do Louisiana Baptists play in the NAMB endorsement process?
In the process of being endorsed by NAMB, you will need a letter from the Louisiana Baptists Chaplaincy Coordinator stating that you are in fact “in good standing” with Louisiana Baptists. NAMB will not endorse anyone that is not a Southern Baptist and member of a Southern Baptist congregation. Due to this requirement, a letter from the Louisiana Baptists Chaplaincy Ministry Coordinator and one from your pastor is necessary.
DUE TO SECURITY RESTRICTIONS, NAMES OF NAMB ENDORSED CHAPLAINS ARE NOT MADE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC. FOR THE NAME AND CONTACT INFORMATION OF A CHAPLAIN, CALL THE LBC-CM COORDINATOR.
