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, relational, 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 one another.  For more information, please call 662-434-2500 or email 14ftw.hc@us.af.mil.

About Chaplains

As visible reminders of the Holy, chaplains directly and 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.

About Religious Affairs Airmen

Religious Affairs Airmen 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. Religious Affairs Airmen are vital to providing spiritual care and are exempt from performing additional duties or details that impede ministry accomplishment.

Privileged Communication

You have the right to privileged communication when speaking to a chaplain or Religious Affairs Airmen.  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 Teen Ministry

Meeting on Wednesday nights at the chapel from 6:00-7:20 PM is our chapel sponsored ecumenical Teen ministry.  Whether Catholic or Protestant, 7th – 12th grade 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 more info!
