Our Share Your Heart Volunteer Chaplaincy Purpose:

Our mission/purpose is to expand the kingdom of God’s love.  One of the ways that we do this is by assisting individuals, children, and families in distress or crisis, victims of domestic violence and human trafficking, victims of neglect, abandonment or abuse and assist the community in times of disaster with 72 hours of food, clothing, essential supplies, employment service assistance, emotional and spiritual support, at a time they may feel they are left with no hope. The Share Your Heart Volunteer Chaplains are trained and certified by the State of Florida to assist and bring the message of love and hope for a better future. We believe that the desire to Share Your Heart is a result of your heart acting in love; and when you act is love, a seed of hope is planted.

How it Works:

(1) The Share Your Heart/DCF Volunteer Chaplaincy Program consists of an introduction and orientation of the program with clergy and eligible faith-based and community leaders held at one of the Department of Children and Families Investigation (DCF) Hubs.

(2) The orientation is followed by the 16 Hour Training for 4 consecutive weeks. These trainings are designed specifically for the Department of Children and Families (DCF) to serve referrals for individuals and families in distress or crisis. The curriculum was developed, and the course is taught by Certified Professional Chaplains from Congregational Health of Baptist Health South Florida. We offer these trainings every other month, or as needed.

(3) Upon graduation, you will have your Level 2 Background clearance, your Share Your Heart Volunteer Chaplain picture ID Card, a Share Your Heart Volunteer Polo with Logos, and a certificate of completion which qualifies you to be deployed to serve referrals from our partnering agencies.

Let’s get ready to work for the 16-hour training course that will equip and prepare you, pastors, chaplains, and community and faith-based leaders and sites.

We thank God for bringing His Kingdom together to do his work in our communities. We pray for all of you and ask that when you read this page, you will pause for a minute… And thank our Lord for what He is doing.
