Chaplains Commission

Directing chaplaincy ministries, both military and civilian, for those in need at home and abroad.

About the PCG Chaplains Commission

PCG chaplains are stationed all over the world in the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Civil Air Patrol, and National Guard. Others serve in hospitals, prisons, and in the police force. As a group, the PCG military chaplains are the youngest, wealthiest, most schooled, most international, and most traveled clergy in the Pentecostal Church of God.

Fast facts

  • Since 2001, the PCG Chaplains Commission has grown from 6 chaplains to 68 active duty, reserve, VA, hospital, prison, National Guard, and law enforcement chaplains—with an additional three dozen seminarians and prospective chaplains in the pipeline.
  • Our chaplains represent more than one million Pentecostal and charismatic constituents, making it the largest chaplaincy of any denomination on a per capita basis.
  • Among PCG chaplains, there are 93 Masters degrees, 17 Doctoral degrees, and dozens of Hospital CPE Certifications. This professional training has been a hallmark of the PCG chaplaincy.
  • PCG Chaplains hail from two dozen U.S. States, Puerto Rico, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and the Philippines.
  • Almost 1/3 of all PCG chaplains are women, many of which serve as commissioned officers and executives in the Defense Department.

Mission & Values

The Pentecostal Church of God believes that God has one mission on His mind—to reach the lost—and one movement on this planet—the Church of Jesus Christ.

So as chaplains, our intent is to participate alongside the Pentecostal Church of God in its efforts to fulfill the mission bestowed upon us by our Savior: to become the hands and feet of Jesus to the hurting and broken, whether on a military base, on the field, within prisons, on deathbeds, in hospitals, or right here on the streets of our own neighborhoods and cities.

* Forms and processing fees ($125 / application) can be mailed directly to Bishop David Reynolds at the address provided within the chaplain's application.

Bishop David Reynolds, Col USAF (retired)
Endorser / Director, PCG Chaplains Commission

David and his wife Hope have enjoyed fellowship with the Pentecostal Church of God since 1977, serving the last 35+ years at Victory Tabernacle (PCG) in Thurmont, MD. In 1984, David entered the USAF Reserves and was eventually endorsed by the PCG as chaplain. Since then, he has ministered to both combatants and civilians alike in many communities, states, and countries including Germany, Japan, New Zealand, and Antarctica.
