The Chaplain Program
A Neumann University chaplain provides personal and spiritual support to the student-athletes, coaches and staff during the entire school year. The chaplain's role is designed to be one of encouragement, vision and leadership. While being in concert with the coaches, the chaplain maintains a special relationship with the captains in assisting to develop their role in leadership through the filter of discipleship. The chaplain is called upon to provide a healthy, balanced perspective to the entire team, making athletics at Neumann University unique and in sync with the University’s mission.
Every chaplain is of service in their own way. Some offer a prayer before or after a game. Others provide words of motivation prior to a contest. All are encouraged to work with the Institute and Campus Ministry to involve their teams in community service, a keystone in Franciscan education.
