Chaplain Training

Illuminate helps Christian communities develop and train care teams to include chaplains who are specifically trained and equipped to help in times of sexual abuse crisis.

Illuminate Chaplain Workshops are designed to train and equip those who want to serve as chaplains to provide hope and healing to those impacted by sexual assault and exploitation.

Trish Propson discovered chaplaincy when she was trying to determine how to build a bridge between the deeply divided sacred and secular areas of her community and meet critical ongoing needs in the area of sexual abuse and exploitation. Trish holds a certification in Biblical Counseling from the Biblical Counseling Institute of Southwestern Theological Seminary and dual master’s degrees in Pastoral Counseling Chaplaincy, and Christian Ministry Leadership from Liberty University.  She serves as a community crisis response chaplain specializing in sexual assault and is licensed and ordained through the International Fellowship of Chaplains (IFOC). She served as a law enforcement chaplain; has a certification in Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) debriefing and received advanced chaplaincy training specific to law enforcement through her membership in the International Conference of Police Chaplains (ICPC). Trish is passionate about training chaplains and developing chaplain corps to come alongside Christian communities to serve the sexually broken.

What does the Bible say about Chaplaincy?

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” 

Matthew 11:28-30

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we have received from God.” 

2 Corinthians 1:3—4

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.”

John 13:34

“…Through love serve one another. For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Galatians 5:13-14

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we have received from God.”

2 Corinthians 1:3–4
