Over forty Ministers of the Gospel, Elders and Mature Christians trained as Licensed Chaplains


The Ecclesiastical Commission of Antigua and Barbuda hosted an intense five (5) day Chaplaincy Training program from 24th-28th February 2020. The training program was held at The BASE, Coolidge (former US Air Force Base) with Facilitator: His Excellency The Right Honorable Dr. Phillip S. Phinn, Chaplain/General and Chairman of the Canadian International Chaplaincy Association and Chancellor of CICA International University and Seminary.

The Chairman of the Ecclesiastical Commission of Antigua and Barbuda, Min. Dr. William Dorsett, was inspired to organize this training following a conversation with the Attorney General, Hon. Steadroy Benjamin, who shared his concern about the national deficiency of qualified people to support and offer counseling to persons who have experienced traumatic situations, incarceration, accidents, family tragedies, and other social difficulties.

A chaplain is a person who has accepted the call of the Lord Jesus Christ to serve people through the Ministry of counselling; reconciliation; spiritual support; and are responsible for sharing and offering God’s love to all those who are in need. These men and women accept the responsibility of becoming agents of change and instruments of God in the process of the mental; physical; social and spiritual restoration of men and women’s health.

Over forty (40) Ministers of the Gospel, Elders and Mature Christians were trained and have successfully completed the course and are now graduates of the CICA International University and Seminary as Licensed Chaplains.

These Chaplains are soon to be commissioned and available to function at Government Institutions, Mount St. John Medical Centre & other Medical Centers and within the Community.

  1. Since when over 40 is a number?

    Is there something wrong with saying 41 42 or 43?

    Or they stop counting at 40….

  2. This pleases me well.
    Congrats to all my fellow bretgeren in Christ.
    Please keep the public informed as to the next training session and the cost.

    God bless
    Good job Rev. Pastor William Dorset and the entire team.

  3. When will the Church come clean, on the influence($), of the Flavians/Caesars and Rome, on their ideology of the Christ, whom they associated with, their jesus?
    The State, and the Church are still controlled by buckingham and Rome, so this collaboration is nothing new. It’s the same old hypocrisy, whereby the State let the Church bamboozle the People through indoctrination(s), to become subservient to them, the Church; the State does not TAX THE CHURCH…free everything.
    The Church now, turns the People over to the Politicians, to abuse them(the People) even further…as in, stressed out due to lack of work, proper housing, mental and physical abuse, etc.

    The Politician now, turn the People back to the same Church, and Orders for counseling, regard ing what the Church started in the first place…mental abuse through indoctrination.
