Help our Military Chaplains Fight the Spiritual Battle
“This small investment has a great return, as every chaplain will minister to countless soldiers with these teaching tools.” — R.C. Sproul
Fighting the Spiritual Battle
A soldier needs the right equipment to fight a war on physical terms. Yet we dare not forget the same soldier’s need for the right tools to fight the spiritual war against the world, the flesh, and the Devil. While the nations rage against one another, the impact on soldiers and their families is often devastating. Military personnel are stationed throughout the world and are in desperate need of the gospel and solid resources to help believers grow deeper in their knowledge of the things of God. Ligonier Ministries is committed to meeting these overlooked needs.
Soldiers Need Trustworthy Bible Teaching
Protestant military chaplains work hard, yet rarely have enough teaching resources to meet soldiers’ needs. They also lack funds to purchase these tools. Such problems make the difficult work of chaplaincy even harder.
Ligonier cares about soldiers and the chaplains serving them. We provide free trustworthy Bible study resources to chaplains twice a year. In 2012, 150 chaplains will receive resource packages containing books, teaching series, and more by Dr. Sproul, our teaching fellows, and other trusted theologians. The chaplains use these tools in the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and elsewhere.
Will You Help Chaplains and Soldiers?
Last year donations surpassed the total needed to fully fund the chaplain support program, so we also sent complimentary Tabletalk subscriptions to chaplains and their families. We again want to fund this outreach entirely through this appeal. It takes $10,000 to fully fund our chaplain program, and we rely on friends like you to provide the funds needed to send teaching resources to chaplains around the world. Will you help?
“Please let Dr. Sproul know that I use the materials weekly. I am a special operations chaplain, and the men that I minister to love good, deep, solid Bible studies, and there are few things out there that can compare with the materials you all send to me. Thank you!”

Just a few weeks ago we sat down with Rev. James R. Carter and discussed the military chaplains’ need for teaching resources and how Ligonier was able to help him. Rev. Carter is senior pastor of New Presbyterian Church in Pompano Beach, Fla. Prior to his call to New Presbyterian Church, Rev. Carter was a member of the U.S. Army Chaplain Corps for more than 20 years, having pastored soldiers, strategic military leaders, and their families at the United States Army War College Memorial Chapel and throughout the world.
