The Chaplaincy has a storied history. Chaplains have traveled the world providing spiritual help to soldiers in war and in peace. Some have given their lives in service to God and country. Our reformed chaplains still serve in an exemplary manner. And yet change has come and the changes are not beneficial for the military community. Liberalism, political correctness, and pluralism are the order of the day. Islam is growing in our Armed Forces. Paganism as seen in the Wiccan population is on the rise. Mormons are now considered “General Protestant.” We now have the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” which permits homosexuals to serve openly among the forces. Homosexual unions are now acceptable. Female soldiers are now being charged to take an even greater role with combat units. There is a demand for tolerance within the Chaplain Corps; however, intolerance is directed more and more toward evangelicals. In order to combat the spiritual decline of our nation’s military forces Ministry to the Military has set forth a blueprint to reclaim the hearts and minds of those who serve our nation so courageously. With God’s help nothing is impossible!
The vision of Ministry to the Military includes the following: (1) Plant Presbyterian and Reformed Churches near all the major bases overseas; (2) Encourage PCA presbyteries in the U.S. to plant churches near major bases that are without a reformed witness; (3) Establish a Reformed Uniform Ministry (RUM) on all major bases in the U.S. and overseas. The primary focus of this ministry is evangelism and discipleship; and (4) RUM will help those who are reached with the Gospel with assimilation into local reformed churches.
The result of this ministry will be that…
