Other Chapel services

Airman Ministry Center
The DEN is an Airman Ministry Center centrally located on the 1st floor of Dorm 350. It is a place where Airmen can go to form healthy relationships and find opportunities for spiritual growth. The atmosphere is much like a family room and coffee house all in one place. Stop in for movie nights, video gaming, ladies activities, group studies, dinner events, and much more! It is a great place for Airmen to hang out and get plugged in with fellow Airmen. 

Our DEN CREW, a volunteer group of Airmen who operate The DEN, is very active around the wing and local community. Get involved at The DEN!

For more information or to join the DEN CREW, call us at 759-3562.

Retreats
Various weekend retreat programs are offered throughout the year as an opportunity for our Airmen and their families to be spiritually strengthened for the challenges of deployments and the high operations tempo of our wing.

Call the Chapel for a current schedule of upcoming retreats.


Counseling
Chaplains offer counseling services to all members of Team McConnell. Chaplains provide 100% privileged communication during these sessions.
