Religious Support Teams (RSTs)

The Air Force Chaplain Corps is a highly diversified, multicultural and multidenominational community focused on the free exercise of religion for Airmen, their families, and other authorized personnel.  Our ranks include officers, enlisted and civilian personnel working at the tactical, operational and strategic levels.


Religious Support Teams (RSTs) consist of a Chaplain and a Religious Affairs Airman who focus on caring for warriors and their families.


When you know someone in need of help, your referral to the Chaplain for a friend in need shows you care. The Religious Support Teams (RSTs) are assigned to Groups, with offices embedded in different locations throughout Beale AFB.  Although they are assigned to groups, you are welcome to seek whom you wish.
