July 2017 Military Ministry Retreat

Thanks to all of you who were able to attend our first Military Ministry Planning Retreat. We are grateful for your insight and enthusiasm for military ministry. For those of you who were unable to attend, we missed you and look forward to hearing what is happening in your churches and communities and finding out how we can support you. Find the resources and tools discussed at the retreat below.

Military Ministry Toolkit

The Diocese of West Texas Military Ministry Toolkit contains everything your congregation needs to begin or expand a Military Ministry. The ideas for ministry run from simple things like adding military members to your prayer list to more involved efforts. There is so much opportunity in the Military Ministry field that every church will find a place that is appropriate for them. The Toolkit also contains information on resources to assist active duty military members, veterans, and their families in your congregation and in your community.

The job description describes what this individual does within their congregation to promote military ministry. The list of Military Contacts for each of our churches who have identified someone to fulfill this important role is also below.
