Chapel Ministries

While serving as a visible reminder of the Holy, the Minot Air Force Base Chaplain Corps staff provides spiritual care and the opportunity for Air Force members and their families to exercise their constitutional right to freedom of religion. "Glorifying God, Serving Airmen and Pursuing Excellence" are words that provide a "job description" for chaplains and chaplain assistants serving around the globe and they point the way ahead for the Chaplain Corps Strategic Planning. The base Chaplain Corps serves the men and women of both the 5th Bomb Wing and 91st Missile Wing.

Please feel free to contact us withany questions by phone (701) 723-2456 or (DSN) 453-2456. Please check regularly for updates. If you need to speak to a chaplain after duty hours, contact (701) 723-3101.
