International Military Chaplains Visit CIU

August 20, 2015

Military chaplains from six nations visited Columbia International University on Aug. 14 to learn about CIU’s Chaplaincy program and to tour the campus. The chaplains represented Suriname, Paraguay, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic. The group was in Columbia attending “Subject Matter Expert,” an event at the U.S. Army Chaplain Center and School at Fort Jackson that encourages intense and meaningful discussions about the chaplain’s role in military operations.   

CIU Chaplaincy professors Dr. Michael Langston and Lt. Col. Brian Bohlman hosted the chaplains on campus. Langston is a former U.S. Navy chaplain, and Bohlman is a chaplain with the U.S. Air National Guard.
