  • Why I chose to be a Chaplain

Approximately 5 years ago I was called in the middle of the night by a Millbrook PD Lieutenant, they had dealt with the death of a minor and the officers and the father were having difficulty coping. The Lieutenant was unable to reach any chaplains, so he called a personal friend, me. I was glad to help and felt called to the chaplain ministry ever since.
