Are You a Student Preparing for Chaplaincy in a Branch of the U.S. Military?

“Military people deserve the best qualified chaplains, for they are not only serving God, but their country.” This quote is from the Reverend Samuel Grover Powell, who served as a chaplain in the United States Air Force for 28 years. The Chaplain Samuel Grover Powell Scholar Fund was established in 1980 by the family and friends of Chaplain Powell after his death to help aid students preparing for chaplaincy in any branch of the U.S. military.
