Why I Became a Chaplain

How Can You Help Support AGC?

The military provides unique ministry opportunities because sailors, soldiers, marines and airmen are often in harm's way and are open to spiritual considerations. AGC has been and remains true to Dr. Garman’s mission, to endorse Bible-believing fundamental men whom the Lord calls to minister to the Armed Forces by providing examples of a scriptural life and faithfully representing their Bible-believing sending churches. The Lord has blessed AGC since its founding in 1939 by providing outstanding Bible-believing men committed to ministering to military personnel in a pluralistic environment while remaining true to the inspired, inerrant, and sufficient Scriptures. However, some AGC chaplains have paid a price for doing so.

Christ Alone. Scripture Alone. Faith Alone.
