Aviation Interfaith Ministry


Resources / Services

The chapel provides a unique set of services and resources for the aviation community. All services and resources are free of charge and are aimed at promoting spiritual growth in the individual. Our literature, counselling and prayer support originate from a Christian perspective. The love demonstrated by Jesus Christ to all of mankind serves as a model for us to follow so we have the unique ability to minister and pray for all people out of love. The second command is in fact to "love your neighbour as yourself," and if we obey the first command to love the Lord with all our heart, we have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that enables us the ability to accomplish the second command.

We are a valuable resource for anyone in need because one premise of our philosophy of ministry is rooted in an understanding that we are a referral group. For example, homeless people are referred to other agencies which are better suited for their specific needs. In counselling we refer to other agencies and work with them in a collective effort for the benefit of the client. We do not charge for our services but raise support through fundraising activities. At any time we will pray for you.


Literature Counselling Prayer Support Chapel Store



Literature

Literature Literature provided is located in the brochure rack inside the chapel and on the arrival levels of the main terminal. Please feel free to take one home with you and contact us with any questions or concerns.

Biblical Counselling

We are here for people who need to vent or who simply need to talk to someone. Often the Lord connects us with people who are struggling with the meaning of life, death or grief, ethical dilemmas and family. Our counselling topics include:
  • Anger Resolution
  • Family Crisis
  • Suicide
  • Depression
  • Marriage
  • Abuse
  • Self-esteem
  • Spiritual Help
Our caring and qualified staff utilize their years of experience and knowledge of the Bible to provide sound counselling. When needed, we will co-ordinate support teams made of other agencies and people while still maintaining contact with the individual. The success of our team is measured by the number of people who have been helped and reintegrated into the workforce.
"The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair and confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face us with the reality of our powerlessness, that is the friend who cares."
-Henri Nouwen
