Inspired

Tap into a weekly source of inspiration and spiritual renewal with contributing editors Robert Kenneth Jones and Chaplain Jeff Wolfe.

We are ChaplainUSA.

We specialize in helping chaplains, but there’s something here for all members of the spiritual community.

We got started back in 2008 with the Police Chaplain Project – an ongoing nationwide effort to transform the wisdom of America’s veteran police chaplains into shareable digital content.

As the project expanded, so did our online community.

Today we offer a range of digital content with the singular purpose of inspiring people to roll up their sleeves and better engage real world solutions.

Police Chaplain Project

A few years back, a group of us established the Police Chaplain Project.

The idea was to tell the story of police chaplaincy one chaplain at a time by creating a video archive.

We kept it simple. We invited police chaplains come in, sit down, look directly into the camera and share their story.

To date, the Police Chaplain Project has conducted more than 100 on-camera interviews with some of the most accomplished police chaplains of the past 50 years.

Police Chaplain Coffee Shop

Police Chaplain Coffee Shop is a Facebook Group for chaplains.

“Our virtual coffee shop is an ideal place to sit down with a cup of coffee, share important (or amusing) information, connect with other chaplains and learn something new,” explains the group’s creator, Chaplain David Fair.
