Southern Baptist Disaster Relief chaplains now have a new tool in their arsenal of resources to help them assist individuals in disaster areas and the volunteers who come to their aid. The Operation Stress First Aid (OSFA) course is now available.
Contact your convention disaster relief office for information about training opportunities. The OSFA course was developed for Southern Baptist Disaster Relief from materials first developed by the United States Marine Corps called Combat Operational Stress Control (COSC). These materials evolved from a desire to better serve service members in combat zones and those emerging from combat zones. The COSC material has been made available to the public. You can download a copy of the COSC manual from one of the links below.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Chaplain Training Manual
On May 4, 2004, the Chaplains Commission, SBC, approved the endorsement of disaster relief chaplains by their state conventions. Once a person has completed the above requirements, they should contact the NAMB Chaplaincy Evangelism Team. For specific application of qualifications to your situation, contact the Volunteer Chaplaincy Associate at (770) 410-6361 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
