Eight chaplains, one team: Kaiserslautern’s Chapel Next

In 1996, two Protestant chaplains at Fort Bragg, N.C., developed a novel form of contemporary Protestant worship. Their idea was to put more emphasis on the needs of young military families and to provide a Christ-centered spiritual experience in a come-as-you-are worship atmosphere. Barely four years later, the new concept has become known as “Chapel Next”, a designation it retains to this day.
