COMPELLED, CALLED, CONNECTED
Chaplains are COMPELLED within their heart and CALLED by the Holy Spirit to CONNECT to our First Responders.
In a world packed with fear and uncertainty, and a world increasingly more challenging with its contempt for authority, chaplains seek to bring calm assurances to First Responders who have a critical role to play in society and with the public they serve. They work through the angst of helplessness and hopelessness by serving as Ambassadors of God.

"We meet people on potentially the worst day of life and extend grace."
PREPARATION, PARTICIPATION, PRESENCE
Chaplains PREPARE their mind and soul to PARTICIPATE daily with First Responder personnel through a ministry of PRESENCE.
Chaplains prepare their minds through a strong educational component which allows them to serve with an added level of excellence. They actively serve the First Responders and their communities many times simply by “loitering with intent” as they listen and share what their training and experience tells them might be needed and necessary.
SEEK, SERVE, SUPPORT
Chaplains SEEK God’s grace as they walk the walk of SERVICE to the First Responders and to the communities they serve in. They are a resource of SUPPORT to all those who ask or are in need.
Chaplains first and foremost seek God’s leading in all that they do. Chaplains provide care, inspire action, connect, motivate, sustain, show trust, and stand in the gap for First Responders and the communities they serve in. To be a chaplain is a journey where they choose to walk alongside another person on their life’s journey. Chaplains support those poignant moments that arise where God’s grace flows freely.
