Welcome to the Association of Certified Christian Chaplains
ACCC is a chaplaincy community that supports our board certified chaplains. We strive to be the leaders in research, education, and practice of chaplaincy care. Our chaplains serve in many areas including, but not limited to, healthcare, business, the military, corrections, and education.
Membership in ACCC helps support these servants of God in their ministry to His children. Please prayerfully consider becoming a member or supporting us through your gift today.
Accepting CPE units from The Institute of Clinical Pastoral Training and other COMISS Network organizations.
Chaplain, Tyson Foods & Deputy Division Chaplain, US Army Reserve
Serving as a chaplain in two different contexts outside of healthcare presented challenges in obtaining CPE. ACCC gave me the opportunity to take 8 units of CPE in my current ministry settings. ACCC also gave me a sense of validation that chaplain ministry outside of healthcare is valid. Learning about multiple chaplain settings while affirming the gifts God provides is refreshing. I highly recommend ACCC and ICPT to anyone!
What our Chaplains say:
Rev. Richard DeFord, BCC
Chaplain, Fitzgibbon Hospital/Fitzgibbon Mary Montgomery Hospice
As a community pastor in ministry for 30 years, I thought I was doing great in providing care. It wasn’t until I received CPE from the Institute for Clinical Pastoral Training (ICPT) and associated with this group of men and women that I learned my care could be so much deeper and transformative for my patients and coworkers. This organization is truly a Godsend.
What our Chaplains say:
Father Robert Lyons, MDiv, BCC
Spiritual Care Manager The Eskenazi Health Center for Spiritual Care & Education
The ACCC is a fellowship in which I am empowered to provide care for all while standing in integrity as I serve, without manufactured tension or conflict. I am profoundly appreciative of the work of the ACCC and am proud to serve as a Board Certified Chaplain under the Association’s umbrella. My membership continues to open new doors for me professionally and enhances my value to my healthcare organization.
