Abstract
The question that this project in ministry sought to answer was "How do Army Chaplains resolve their feelings of powerlessness when they are unable to help a deployed soldier meet a specific need?" The method used in this study was grounded theory. The results show that chaplains go through a transformation and become new people. The changes that occur are categorized by five marks. These marks include: increased humility, improved pastoral identity, recognizing their finiteness, valuing their contributions, and finding strengths in weakness. The way that this transformation occurs is largely through relationship.
