Our Programs

Basic Chaplaincy USA

With natural disasters such as tornadoes, fires, hurricanes, and other unforeseen events, the church has transformed into more than just a place of worship. It has become a place for pastoral care during times of crisis and offers emotional and spiritual support to those in need. Providing care during a tragedy is challenging, especially when someone has lost everything or when parents are grieving the loss of a child. Today, emergency services are relying on chaplains for pastoral and emotional care during times of need.

The CTC Network USA is an authorized Chaplains International Training Institute. The Chaplain Certification Program consists of 20 hours of training at your location. The cost is $300.00 per participant.

Basic Chaplaincy Training Caribbean

Frontline Chaplains International

Currently, most agencies arrive in the Caribbean for short-term missions and crisis relief. While these trips have benefits, they fail to address the ongoing need to equip believers to respond to a crisis–large or small.

F.C.I. has accepted the charge to provide training to Christians in The Bahamas, Aruba, Islands, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, Haiti, Dominican Republic, and additional Caribbean nations. As the Caribbean Regional Commander, I invite you to consider attending one of our trainings.

Frontline Chaplains International promotes the ministry of Chaplaincy across the nations to equip local believers, military personnel, and first responders to serve those on the frontlines of the crisis. F.C.I. Basic Chaplaincy Training is a 16-hour course awarding a certificate of completion. This training includes these topics and more:

Operational Stress First Aid (One Day Workshop)

Operational Stress First Aid (OSFA) is a unique program to teach psychological first aid to first responders and others who are susceptible to stress injury. The program originally developed by the Department of Defense for the Marines is used to prevent, identify and treat stress problems caused by operations, critical events, and personal or family crises. The goal of OSFA is to build resiliency and awareness and to keep personnel fully functional. The program also includes tools to assist leaders and personnel to take appropriate actions to restore personnel to full function and readiness when necessary. The principles of this class are foundational to all psychological first aid and resources that reference legitimate and credible crisis intervention organizations.

What You Will Learn

  • Four sources of stress injury
  • Understand the operational stress continuum illustrated by 4 colors.
  • Signs and symptoms of stress injury
  • Leadership functions during stress
  • How to do an after-action review
  • Understanding the checklist to determine the level of stress.

Communication During Crisis (One-Day Workshop)

Intentional Listening and Compassionate Responding

Even in the best of circumstances, communication is difficult. Understanding what people mean and responding so people understand is a constant challenge in “good communication.” Effective communication during critical moments requires skills in mitigating stress, building rapport, and compassionate responses. Listening to facts is much easier than listening to the emotions of a person during a crisis.

Responding to a cognitive question is much easier than responding to “Why?” During critical moments, impacted people need listeners who know how to apply the principles of psychological first aid and still respond compassionately.

Care providers must know how to respond to impacted folks who are afraid, who are grieving, and even those who are difficult – challenging to listen to in the crisis moment. Care providers may encounter people who feel desperate or hopeless. Compassionate communication includes knowing what to say if someone is suicidal.

This training course will help you know what you must intentionally do to become a better, effective communicator during a critical situation when a person has been impacted by the event and is aroused – in distress. In crisis intervention, active listening is essential. However, the appropriate response is also necessary for the communication process. It requires both listening and responding in such a way that the impacted speaker feels compassionately heard and understood. In other words, the responder must learn to “listen with your heart.”

What you will learn

• How communication is impacted by crisis reactions
• What communication needs exist during the crisis
• How people communicate when distressed
• Principles of active listening
• Ethics of Listening
• Principles of compassionate responses
• How to communicate with fearful people
• How to communicate with people who are grieving
• How to communicate with difficult people
• What to say if someone is suicidal

Human Rights Training

Human Rights, rights that belong to an individual or group of individuals simply for being human, or as a consequence of inherent human vulnerability, or because they are requisite to the possibility of a just society. Whatever their theoretical justification, human rights refer to a wide continuum of values or capabilities thought to enhance human agency or protect human interests and declared to be universal in character, in some sense equally claimed for all human beings, present and future.

Human Rights Seminar is a 6-hour training on the basics and importance of Human Rights. Participants receive a Certificate of Completion from The CTC Network USA.

Seminar Topics:

  • What are Human Rights.
  • The Four Schools of Human Rights.
  • The 30 Articles of Human Rights.
  • Promoting Human Rights.

My Seminar is a good fit for: 

  • Governmental agencies and departments that deal with issues related to human rights, social justice, and equality. 
  • Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and nonprofit organizations that promote and defend human rights. 
  • Educational institutions such as universities, schools, and research institutions need assistance in developing policies and programs that promote human rights. 
  • Healthcare providers such as hospitals and clinics that need guidance on issues related to patients' rights, informed consent, and ethical treatment.
  • Social enterprises and startups that aim to address social issues such as poverty, inequality, and environmental degradation.
  • Faith-based organizations that seek to promote social justice and human rights through their activities.
