Each year, The Upper Room Chaplains’ Ministry distributes 270,000 copies of The Upper Room
daily devotional guide to military and prison chaplains.
Rich in history and connection, the Chaplains’ Ministry started in the wake of World War II when staff
began to work with military chaplains to provide copies of The Upper Room to our armed forces. Over time,
the ministry grew to include prison chaplains. In recent months, it has begun to serve VA hospital chaplains, due to the generosity of donors.
Military, VA hospital, and prison chaplains who use The Upper Room in their ministries are able to give the men and women in their care a tangible reminder of God’s presence in their time of need—and this is a gift of hope.
Your gift to The Upper Room Chaplains’ Ministry will continue to deliver this message of hope and
encouragement to our men and women in uniform and to our neighbors behind bars.
