The Chaplaincy

The goal of the Chaplaincy program is to serve the students and staff of Flandreau Indian School and provide spiritual guidance for those who seek it. On average, Flandreau Indian School students have been moved seven times, due to abandonment or family problems. The Chaplain is free to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ into these students' lives and they, in turn, take their faith back to families and tribes.

The Chaplain is able to:
  • Relate as a Christian friend to students and staff
  • Share the Gospel's good news with students
  • Counsel and help students in dealing with critical needs on and off campus
  • Be a liaison between the school and local community
