Important Information for BCCI Applicants

If you have questions regarding the Board of Chaplaincy Certification Inc. certification process, please contact the national office at 847.240.1014 or bcci@apchaplains.org.

BCCI certification does not include membership in the Association of Professional Chaplains. Chaplains who join APC before submitting their BCCI application receive a discount on their application fees. This is just one of the many benefits APC membership offers.
