Ready to start customizing your own Chaplain Care Team?
Our professional chaplains are called to be workplace caregivers. They are dedicated to supporting the emotional wellness of employees. They have a heart for employees and understand the workplace as they have been there themselves dealing with stress, co-worker and supervisor conflicts, long hours and work dissatisfaction. Our Chaplain Care Teams are fully-trained, managed, held accountable and supported by full-time Leaders.
Our chaplains only perform front-line chaplain work. They are not required to do administrative duties, filling out paperwork, finding new chaplains or asked to help market the service to new companies—they are focused and dedicated to take care of your employees, 24/7!
Our chaplain care utilizes a team approach. Your team of chaplains will consist of male, female and ethnically-diverse chaplains who are either full-time or assignment-based dependent on company locations and number of employees to be served.
Our chaplains see employees as God sees them and are granted permission by company leaders like you to help people move out of ditches, towards a better destination and into better places of influence for themselves, their co-workers, their family and, ultimately, your company!

Just the existence of the Chaplain Care Team at David Weekley Homes helps to set the tone for the level of integrity and morals expected from its people. It was one of the items that really ATTRACTED me to David Weekley Homes because it showed me that he had a vested interest in my overall well-being, not just in what I could do for the company.
Marketplace Chaplains is a perfect fit for Pioneer because it backs up our culture- that our employees come first, even ahead of our shareholders because if we have fully engaged employees, our shareholders are the winners. By providing a resource like Marketplace Chaplains to our employees, they have someone they can confidentially share problems with, vent, get solid advice and know that Pioneer cares enough to provide help when talking to their boss is not an option. No one goes through life without problems. Many people have support groups they are plugged into; however, I have been surprised how many people don’t have those support groups and Marketplace Chaplains does an excellent job in filling that void.
All companies of our size usually have an employee assistance program. Those programs are great but it’s something where you have to pick up the phone and call someone and set up an appointment. This is on-site. Our employees can reach out and touch the person. It’s personal. They build a relationship with this chaplain and can trust them and tell them what they’re going through.
I believe it is beyond worth the money. You have employees building relationships with these people. Our employees are utilizing them on a daily basis. It’s a friendship, so when they do go through hard times or good times, they’ve got that contact to reach out to right here at AMERICAN Castings.
Bringing in the Marketplace Chaplain group has made the biggest impact in our business and has been the strongest effort to reach every single person. The Marketplace Chaplains see every single person out on the production floor. They come in at night to meet our night shift group. We have another group that comes in in the afternoon to meet the route men as they’re coming in. We also have somebody who speaks Spanish because a lot of our production floor staff speaks only Spanish. And so, we have both English- and Spanish-speaking chaplains that come in here.
Marketplace Chaplains is the best resource I can imagine for a company. Providing a Chaplain shows we care. Having that resource ready when an employee goes through a crisis and needs someone, opens the door for them to experience God’s love. When we first began the Chaplain service, it was obvious that this was an awkward transition for our team to consider a workplace Chaplain. However, it didn’t take long to discover that the Chaplains that were assigned to us fit very well into our team and our culture. Now when they walk in the building, they are a ray of sunshine.
Marketplace Chaplains helps me when team members are experiencing sensitive personal situations or tragedy in their lives whereby they need professional counseling or spiritual guidance. The Chaplains assigned to Burris Elkton over the years have been extremely responsive and caring. I continue to receive outstanding feedback from employees.
