Vision: Caring for the spiritual readiness of America’s Airmen and Cadets.
Mission: Provide agile spiritual care to the USAFA community that is precise, intentional, and Airman/Cadet focused.
1. Re-sharpen our focus on spiritual readiness.
2. Strengthen our Leadership Advisement.
3. Promote respect for religious diversity.
The Religious Respect Training is a USAFA program preparing cadets, cadet candidates, civilian personnel, faculty, and assigned permanent party personnel to support the free exercise of religion. This training promotes a unified environment where respect for human dignity is a prevailing quality in our daily relationships as leaders and future leaders in the United States Air Force and Space Force.
The Religious Support Team is comprised of one Air Force Chaplain and one Religious Affairs Airmen at every organizational level. RSTs are assigned and actively engaged in each squadron, advising leadership, and providing spiritual care that is sensitive to the needs of all cadets, cadet candidates, permanent party, and their families.
Religious Support Teams (RSTs) consist of a chaplain and a chaplain assistant who focus on caring for warriors and their families.
Confidential communication is any communication made to a Chaplain or Religious Affairs Airman by a cadet, cadet candidate, military member, their authorized dependents, if the communication is made either as a formal act of religion or as a matter of conscience. A communication is also confidential if made to a Chaplain in their official capacity as a spiritual advisor or to a Religious Affairs Airman in their official capacity. Chaplains and Religious Affairs Airmen must not disclose confidential communication without the permission and written consent of the individual.
