The effectiveness of the media tools of the Ukrainian chaplaincy in war conditions is considered. It is substantiated that the extreme conditions of war favor the selection of quality candidates for the chaplain service and the integration of chaplaincy into the military structure. The chaplain’s work is not limited to spiritual care, but also focuses on the moral and psychological support of military personnel. The use of such social networks as Instagram and Tik-Tok as a new form of work for chaplains is being studied. The following common forms of work of chaplains in social networks were identified: keeping a chronicle of a military unit, showing coexistence of a chaplain with soldiers in combat conditions, and using social networks for feedback of chaplains to military personnel and their families through answers to topical questions. The specific forms of work of individual chaplains are also investigated – their specialization in certain types of support and care of the military.
