What We Do

Chaplaincy is best described as a "ministry of presence." As such, we are best viewed as volunteer members of the departments we serve as we "loiter with inent" with access to the department's facilities and training. The intent is for officers to get to know and trust us so that they feel comfortable enough to call us for guidance in their professional or personal lives when they sense a need to talk with someone who understands the challenges and stressors they encounter.

Specific ways chaplains may be used:

  • Assist in death notifications

  • Assist and support victims in times of crisis

  • Responde to suicide incidents

  • Serve as a member of a crisis response team

  • Facilitate critical incident debriefings

  • Serve as a resource for counseling for members of the agency and their families

  • Deliver an invocation or benediction at public ceremonies

  • Provide pastoral care as requested by officers (ie. prayer, Bible studies, visitations, baptisms, weddings, funerals, etc.
