Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of writing this paper was to raise awareness about spiritual fitness within the Hawaii Army National Guard. A training program was developed to assist soldiers with increasing their spiritual fitness, thereby making them more resilient.

Chapter 1 outlines the current trends and ministry problem facing the Hawaii Army National Guard soldiers. A review of the US Army Comprehensive Soldier Fitness Program is addressed, and it is shown how spiritual fitness is developed and increased.

Chapter 2 provides a review of literature relating to the topic of spiritual fitness, and the importance and place it has in our society. The development of the Four Spiritual Laws is addressed, and shown how the use of the booklet can very simply and directly help individuals grow their faith personally.

Chapter 3 sets forth the research methodology utilized in approaching the project, including the use of readily available training materials and resources. The purpose of the spiritual fitness inventory is discussed and the goals of each research area are defined.

Chapter 4 presents an analysis of the method used to gather supporting data. The methodology for the chaplain led intervention is outlined, so that others can use the program to engage their military units in the future replication of this program.

Chapter 5 assesses the data and points to the strategy for areas of further research across the Hawaii Army National Guard. The benefits of the program are discussed and shown to be applicable for implementation by other chaplains across the state.
