About Chaplaincy Services International

Since 2002, we have trained hundreds of Community Chaplains.  These chaplains have served and/or are serving in places such as Baylor healthcare Systems, Children’s Medical Center, numerous state and federal prisons, Woodmont Cabinetry, Dept. of Public Safety for DFW Airport, Express Employment Professionals, Hope Mansion, Teen Challenge, Chi Alpha Campus Ministries, Southwest Airlines, etc.  

Our Community Chaplains have also responded to critical incidents such as the tornadoes in Lancaster, Forney, and Cleburne, the fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas, and in the aftermath of hurricanes such as Katrina and Rita.


This is what others are saying about the training:

“I will be forever grateful to you both for your great training and leadership in the CCTC. Your love for the Lord and compassion for serving Him is so evident for others to see and experience. Serving as one of the chaplains at ______ Police Dept has been awesome... Our biggest challenge has been from the death of the young female officer that was killed in accident. Another was the suicide of father of one of our employees... the ‘ministry of presence’ is so important.”
“The Community Chaplains training changed my life!”
“I have a library full of ministry books and if I had to choose only two of them, I would choose my Bible and the training manual for Community Chaplains because it is so comprehensive and practical.”
From a Pastor
“The training completely changed my husband’s perspective – it provided him with practical ministry tools for the marketplace. Now instead of just going to work he realizes he is entering his missions’ field.”
“Serving as a Chaplain at DFW Airport is such a blessing. It seems as though this ministry was designed with me in mind.”
“The Community Chaplains training and program has revolutionized our church”
From a Pastor's Wife
"... the Timmerman's equipped a roomful of people this weekend to become "chaplains" in our marketplace. What these guys quietly do is remarkable and one of the most effective high level discipleship systems I know. We are deeply thankful for this ministry and the incredible job you guys do!!"
