An endorsing agent is an ecclesiastical organization recognized by the Department of Defense to place men in the military as chaplains. No person can serve as a military chaplain without the endorsement of an agency. The agency continues to represent its chaplains before the military Chiefs of Chaplains and provide guidance, training and counsel to its chaplains.
APBM is unique because we are strictly a local church ministry. We operate under the authority of Calvary Baptist Church, to assist other churches to place their members into the military as chaplains. APBM considers any man who is a member of an Independent, Fundamental Baptist Church.
