Corporate Chaplains of America is an outsource provider of chaplain services utilizing a non-profit business model that allows for services to be provided to the smallest of companies and the largest of companies across a wide range of industries. Chaplains build a personal relationship with employees through weekly rounds and are available 24/7 to respond to employees in crisis.

CCA employs primarily full-time, long-term chaplains who combine workplace experience with professional chaplaincy training. Our proven process incorporates management principles that provide employee support with the greatest convenience to the CEO/business owner and with the maximum impact for the employee.

At CCA, we believe that Jesus Christ is the answer to our greatest need. While we respect the faith boundaries of employees and adhere to the standards and expectations for a permission-based, secular workplace ministry, when directly asked about their theological underpinnings, our chaplains are trained to respond from a Biblical Christian worldview.

People spend more time at work than anywhere else. But just because they go to work doesn't mean they've left their worries at home. Anxieties crowd out focused work time. Hospital visits create mounting unpaid days off. Illness and death devastate families and burden employees with skyrocketing health care costs.

Employees aren't the only ones who suffer during crisis. Time after time, employers repeat stories of inadequate workplace support programs and feelings of helplessness.

Corporate Chaplains of America (CCA) brings care and compassion to the workplace, where it is needed most, and where it can make a meaningful difference. Because of our boots-on-the-ground approach to ministry, CCA can care for those who need a trusted objective friend and confidant and those who can't bear their burdens alone anymore.

Mission statement

At CCA, our mission is to "build caring relationships with the hope of gaining permission to share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ in a non-threatening manner." As global economies rise and fall, one need remains the same - the need of souls to find lasting hope.

Statement of faith

The following is a brief summary of the doctrinal core beliefs of Corporate Chaplains of America. It is not intended to be an exhaustive systematic theology but a framework that we can mutually agree upon. This theological underpinning allows our chaplains to love and care for all employees.

About the Bible: We believe that the Bible as originally written is the inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

About God: We believe that there is one and only one living and true God; that He eternally exists as three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; that all three are eternally equal in nature, attributes and perfection.

About Jesus: We believe Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, lived a physical life on this earth and, being fully God and fully man, was without sin.

About Salvation: We believe that all mankind sins and as such, no one has the ability to save themselves by doing good deeds or by being a 'good person'. It is only through accepting Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord that one can receive eternal life in Heaven. Salvation is available to anyone who acknowledges by faith that Jesus Christ died on the cross for their sins, rose bodily from the grave, and asks Him to forgive them of their sins and save their soul.

About Ministry: We believe that, as Christians, it is a responsibility, a duty and a joy to spread the Word of God to all who will listen.
