“We teach people to help people.”



We would like to welcome you to the official web site of The Joint Commission on Chaplain Accreditation and Education. In this site you will have the opportunity to get to know JCCAE and learn about the most up-to-date and in-depth specialized Chaplain Crisis Counseling training in the country today.

The members of Joint Commission on Chaplain Accreditation and Education are directed by a board of licensed and ordained nondenominational Doctors, Psychologists, Chaplains and Crisis Instructors of a “one of a kind ministry” with members, State Directors, Associate Instructors and Divisions located worldwide. We come from all faith groups, ethnic, gender and educational backgrounds.

Through the Lord’s divine grace and guidance He has blessed, ordained, and shaped our ministry after the Ministry of Jesus Christ and put our crisis counseling training on four continents in only 14 months. Our training materials are being taught in many colleges, universities, hospitals, hospice organizations, prison and jails, law enforcement organizations, churches and communities all over the world.  

Biblical counseling emphasizes a God-centered approach to solving problems. The goal is first to be concerned about pleasing God. Deliverance from the problem is secondary to seeing God in the problem and at work in the person's life (Romans 8:28-29). Biblical counseling is a ministry of the church. The church is God's ordained agency to help His people grow and change into the likeness of Christ. In fact, while church leaders are responsible (Hebrews 13:17), God has called ALL believers to counsel one another to some degree (Romans 15:4).

JCCAE’s members are hard working, Christian people with the heart and compassion to reach out to a lost world to help teach God’s people how to help others in a time of crisis and uncertainty.

JCCAE is an organization of people who God has called and who believe that the love of Jesus abides in us and what we do on earth determines where we go in the hereafter. Jesus said, “…I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.”

JCCAE believes Crisis Counseling reveals behaviors as a symptom of deeper emotional and spiritual disturbances. We believe that problems hinder our progress in doing what the Lord commands of us. Once underlying spiritual issues are identified, they can begin to be resolved. The greatest battle ground is within our own mind because it is the spiritual sphere of rational activity and rational influence. Apostle Paul wrote about this matter clearly and proves the bible is true. He wrote about his uncontrollable life and behaviors as proof of his separation from God.

JCCAE teaches God’s people a faith-based foundation and we trust and stand on the firm belief that anyone can give without loving but no one can love without giving and we teach all of God’s children that it is possible to give and love in a time of crisis and need.

In James 1:27 what God the Father considers to be pure and genuine religion is this: to take care of orphans and widows in their suffering and to keep oneself from being corrupted by the world.

JCCAE is an outreach teaching ministry, teaching a ministry of presence dedicated to helping those in times of crisis. A wise man once said that our decisions determine our direction, and our direction determines our destiny.

JCCAE believes that our direction must be true, and that we must let our destiny be one of greatness for the glory of God's kingdom by teaching people to help one another. We sincerely hope that you will be blessed by our web site and the opportunity to take our crisis courses and go out and help God’s people throughout the world.
