The Department of Veterans Affairs National Black Chaplains Association

NBCA supports the upward mobility of African American chaplains; provides educational opportunities for chaplains in cultural diversity; recognizes pioneers of the association, and provides a network for communicating contemporary chaplain concerns. The NBCA also provides a nationally recognized clinical certification for qualified members. In 1993 the association entered into a certification validation agreement with the Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC) of Atlanta Georgia, and in 2000 entered into the reciprocity arrangement with the National Association of VA Chaplains (NAVAC), recognizing valid clinical certifications by VA cognate groups.
