The Air Force Chaplain Corps provides spiritual care and the opportunity for Airmen, their families, and other authorized personnel to exercise their constitutional right to the free exercise of religion. This is accomplished through religious observances, providing pastoral care, and advising leadership on spiritual, ethical, moral, morale, core values, and religious accommodation issues. Whether you are new to Columbus Air Force Base or have been around for a while, our parish communities welcome you to join us as we worship, fellowship, and encourage on another.  For more information, please call 662-434-2500.

About Chaplains

As visible reminders of the Holy, chaplains directly or indirectly provide for the free exercise of religion for Airmen, their families, and other authorized personnel. Chaplains do not perform duties incompatible with their faith group tenets, professional role, or noncombatant status. Chaplains do not serve in any military capacity other than those specific duties contained in the 52RX Specialty Description found in AFI 36-2101, Classifying Military Personnel.

About Chaplain Assistants

Chaplain assistants facilitate the free exercise of religion for Airmen, their families, and other authorized personnel. They are assigned at all levels of command to facilitate spiritual care and ethical leadership. Chaplain assistants are vital to providing spiritual care and are exempt from performing additional duties or details that impede ministry accomplishment. The chaplain assistant specialty description is specified in AFI 36-2101, Classifying Military Personnel.

Privileged Communication

You have the right to privileged communication when speaking to a chaplain.  AFI 52-101 paragraph 5.1.1 states “Under no circumstances may a chaplain disclose privileged communication revealed in the practices of his/her ministry without the individual counsel’s informed, written consent.”

Ignition Youth Group

Meeting on Wednesday nights at the chapel from 6:00-7:45 PM is our chapel sponsored ecumenical youth group program.  Whether Catholic or Protestant, middle-high school students are invited to attend.  We gather to fellowship, pray, learn, eat and play.  We also do fun outings such as movies, sporting events, bowling and more.  Please call 434-2500 for additional info!
