Chaplains News and Field Reports! (Page 9)

Romans 12:1-4-8 Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.


Deputy Chief Terry Wildman reporting in from Missouri: I was blessed to be able to attend the conference in Buffalo New York on prison, jail,and juvenile awareness. It was very informative and I learned a lot regarding these subjects. My guest and I also meet several of the local New York Chaplains for dinner one night at a local restaurant. There were approximately 7 chaplains and there wives. We had a wonderful time and I learned a lot about each ones of the chaplain's ministry specialties, they made us feel very welcome and we had a wonderful time. I had a good opportunity at the conference to get to know everyone. We want to thank everyone in New York for there hospitality and we hope to be able to return in the near future. God Bless everyone,DC Chaplain Terry Wildman. Thank you for your report! bless you and your families! Chaplain Gibson, Chaplain Francis

Chaplain Jeff Russell reporting in from from Pennsylvania: Over the past 5 years God has brought me to new and intriguing assignements. I plan on doing a more extensive update but wanted to share this with you personally....Not since my time in the military have I found a christian service organization that provides "leader directed" chaplaincy. The common thread to my experiences of the past years is CFMI. It has opened a whole new world to me along with my seminary training and credentials. Combining both my theological training and literarily wearing my CFMI credentials "on my sleeve" has been a powerful 1, 2 punch. Sincerely, IHS, Jeff Russell. Thank you for your report and kind words. bless you and your family! Chaplain Gibson, Chaplain Francis

Chaplain David Barbour reporting in from North Carolina: Dear Chaplain Gibson, Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus, I wanted to e-mail you and say thanks so much for Chaplain Fellowship Ministries and thanks for accepting me as a member. Since my membership the first of the year I've performed a marriage using the resources available on the web-site and found them very helpful, and also the ordination has opened up many doors for ministry through my local church, we are currently organizing a disaster relief outreach ministry recruiting and equipping volunteers. My wife and I are currently working in the tornado disaster zone in eastern NC that left so many homeless and confused over the weekend. Ironically, this week was our 25th wedding anniversary and we were going to take a trip to celebrate but just couldn't leave with such devastation so close to home, we plan to stay to help with cleanup for the remainder of the week until we have to go back to our regular jobs.

Chaplain James( J.D.) Nolin reporting in from Florida: Chaplain Nolin is also with the Brotherhood of Christian Law Enforcement Officers in Florida , After serving over 30 years as a law enforcement officer myself before being called into the ministry, I know all to well the dangers both physical and spiritual that law enforcement officers face every day. I know that true officer survival is more than just a gun and bullet proof vest, it is having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. I feel God has called me to bring and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all those in law enforcement and their families. To carry out this calling we provide Free bibles to Law Enforcement Officers, A Memorial bible to the family of any officer that is killed in the line of duty, A 24 hour,7 days a week, on-line bible study for officers. A web site where officers can pose a biblical question, share a praise report ,or make a prayer request. Encouragement, comfort and aid to Law Enforcement Officers or their families in times of crisis. Speaking engagements anywhere the perspectives and expertise of Christian Law Enforcement Officers could be of benefit.The first quarter of this year 2011 we have provided over 100 free bibles to officers which made a request through our web site. Also within this the first quarter of this year we have had 51 officers killed in the line of duty or to die from a duty related injury and we have provided a memorial bible to every family of each fallen officer. We also provided a memorial bible to all of the fallen officer’s agency's chief administers ie: Chief , Sheriff, or Superintendent. Within this first quarter of 2011 we have had many officers take the opportunity to use our on-line bible study. We have also had numerous prayer requests, and praise reports. I also had hospital visitation with several local officers and their family members. This quarter I have had the opportunity to speak at two churches and to share what great things God is doing within the law enforcement community. Thank you for your field report! Chaplain Don Gibson, Chaplain Bruce Francis
Chaplain Bruce Payne reporting in: Hello to all members! This is the first time I've reported in. I am more of the infantry type when it comes to ministry, I would rather be out doing ministry, but when it comes to writing I procrastinate.I have been doing prison ministry for about 6 or 7 years and have been blessed to be involved in 6 different ministries. Because of the different ministries I am able to be involved in; just about every area of ministry from music, to preaching in Chapel services,Teaching Bible classes, one on ones,Confinement ministry,Yard ministry; all which include evangelism and discipling. We talk to people involved in just about every religion and cult you can imagine, and it is such a great joy to see our great GOD work on their hearts and to see the spiritual scales fall off their eyes when they understand about the free gift of salvat! ion through Our great GOD and Saviour JESUS CHRIST. I might in the near future be involved in a re-entry ministry, and I am thinking of maybe starting a street ministry. I have to keep praying and see if that is GOD's will at this time. I want to say that all the praise and glory goes to our Mighty GOD; I'm just an old tool that he uses. What a joy!!! GOD bless! Thank you for your field report! Chaplain Don Gibson, Chaplain Bruce Francis

Chapain Kenneth Day reporting in from North carolina: In 2009 I completed my TH.D from Andersonville Theological Seminary. Yet, I felt lead by the Spirit of God to study more. Consequently, I completed a D.Min through Andersonville in 2010. These addition courses dealt with crisis intervention, biblical counseling, and counseling with chronic and terminally ill. I found that this extra course work has been used by God in my position as Volunteer Chaplain for North Carolina Dept of Corrections. These courses have been especially useful working in the long term Adminstrative Segregation Unit. To God be the Glory! Recently I felt lead to become a Ph.D candidate specializing in Advanced Prophetics through Louisana Baptist University. Wow, I began a Bible study on prophetics and the class has just exploded with inmates showing up that have never come before. God is changing lives. If God calls you to increase your knowledge through Biblical education please respond. He will use this for His glory. Brother in Christ, Chaplain Kenneth Day. Thank you for your field report.

Chaplain Gretchen Jacobs from Mesa, Arizona: My initial ministry as a CFMI chaplain was doing patient visitations in a local hospital for several months. I was also visiting patients and families in an inpatient hospice facility. I also performed two memorial services in my community. In March of this year I was inspired to tackle my vision for providing counseling as a chaplain, free of charge, hoping to meet the needs in our community of people who are stretched financially. I felt God’s endorsement as my church picked up my office rental fee and clients flowed in. As I am retired and only chose to do this aspect of my ministry part time, I see an average of 10 clients a week; provide individual and marriage counseling and recovery help. I have attended advanced training workshops and read constantly to grow and refresh my memory since a graduate student in Christian Counseling several years ago. It is amazing work and I feel I have fully yielded to my true ministry calling. Becoming formally inducted as a Chaplin at the recent CFMI conference moved me to tears as I recalled how God has reclaimed my life from ashes to humble service. Thank you, Dr. Gibson, for your vision for CFMI and all the hearts and lives you touch and save through shepherding your sheep. Bless you Chaplian Jacobs, and thank you for your field report update. Chaplain Donald Gibson & Chaplain Bruce Francis

The 2010 CFMI Conference from the Home Office: The conference this year started with as few unexpected problems. The church where we were going to hold the conference flooded the day before. We had to scramble to find a new location which the Lord as always showed us the way by providing a choice of two different location. Due to the weather in central Texas being so bad there were a fairly large number of chaplains who canceled their attendance this year. Next year we will be holding our conference in October when it will not be so hot, and we will not have to worry about intense rain or flooding. This will be a short report for now, there will be a detailed report with photos next week after all the photos come in from some of our members. This year there were twelve members who received the presidential call to service award. One member received the honorary Doctor of Divinity in Chaplaincy Studies. Two members were elevated to senior chaplain, four members were appointed as Deputy Chief Chaplains in administrative positions, and one member was elevated to Chief Chaplain. The official uniform for CFMI chaplains was presented to the members attending this year , which will be presented to all members at a later date. We would like to thank Todd Hess the manager of the Bridge for providing us with a place to gather this year, he really came through for us at the last minute this year. There were seven chaplains ordained by ministry elders this year. We were all so blessed by the ordination ceremony performed by Chief Chaplain Henry Curtis, Senior Chaplain John Gorden and Senior Chaplain Charles Popovich from New York. There are no words to express what a wonderful and blessed job they did, we thank them from the bottom of our hearts. They have agreed to perform all future ordination ceremonies for members at our conferences each year. Senior Chaplain James Felder from the Humble House did a wonderful job handing the transportation, James took care of everyone assuring they got to and from where they needed to be. Deputy Chief Steve Neatherlin and the guys from the Humble House blessed us a great lunch, we what to thank everyone at the Humble House for allowing us the honor of visit with them, and for invading their home, thank you guys.

Several law enforcement, military and fire departments from around the central Texas area participated in the special observance including bag pipe players, drummers, and color guards. Following the solem parade, a special memorial program was conducted near the Taylor City Hall. As I offered the invocation, my heart and mind were tuned to the survivors of the attack and I again realized how this changed America. There were many other observances around the country and I am pleased that we chaplains had the opportunity to participate. GOD bless America.

In May 2010, I graduated with 4 Units of CPE in Clinical Chaplaincy Univ of Arkansas Med Science in Little Rock, It was 1 year program full time. I obtained a Hospice Certification in Feb 2010. I earned another 3 Units of CPE from United Graduate College and Seminary in Tennessee. I spoke with Chappy about 6 weeks ago, and he wanted me to send all the documentation for my file so that if someone calls you to verify all my experience or education, you will be able to pull my file, and verify either on the phone or by fax. for job interview. Also we discussed that it is just good to know what the troops are doing. I know chappy is proud of everyone of his troops and what they do with the resources God has given them. I cannot think of a finer institution or of a finer organization than our Chaplain Fellowship Ministries. There is no group of men or women who minister to others better than us; I am sorry if that seems elitist, but that's the way it is. It is not really us but the LORD in us. So He gets the glory for all that we do and accomplish. A chaplain is not supposed to be a theologian, no he/she is an angel on the battlefield of life. We use the jawbone of an ass, to cut down the enemies of despair, PTSD, failure, depression, boredom, hopelessness, and the other small and large beasts of the field that affix themselves to the wounds of our charges. That jawbone is our "own mouth" with God's Words. Anyway I am just reporting into headquarters after a long hard year in Little Rock. And a new phase in my life as a Master Chaplain. Serving with Dignity and Pride, with all my brothers and sisters. Master Chaplain Kenneth McEahern, Thank you for your report Chaplain McEaern. Respectfully CMD Donald J. Gibson, CMD Bruce E. Francis

Chaplain James Taylor from Georgia: Thank you for the updates. It's great hearing about how other chaplain's are striving to minister to others. I was particularly struck by the note on Domestic Violence. This is an area I'm especially interested in because I am a police chaplain for the Peachtree City Police Department in Peachtree City GA. The point is that the majority of our calls are domestic violence calls. I recently completed both the domestic violence and the domestic violence facilitator's courses. I haven't received my certificates yet, but it's a little too early for that...I expect them any day now. Chaplain's Fellowship Ministries actually got me started and gave me the credentials to be both a police and hospital chaplain. I have since been ordained by my denomination, the Charismatic Episcopal Church. But because of the CFMI ordination I became an Associate Chaplain on our local hospital's staff. I can't thank you enough for the work you do and for the support of CFMI. Blessings on you and your staff! Thank you for your report Chaplain Taylor. Respectfully CMD Donald J. Gibson, CMD Bruce E. Francis

Master Chaplain Larry Todd from Texas:  Troops Returning Home form deployment. What a thrill Sunday August 8th to give the welcome home prayer for nearly forty soldiers returning from Iraq to Taylor, Texas. Fine National Guardsmen who are now home with their families and friends. For most of us, it seemed like only yesterday when we gave them a huge send off and a prayer for their safety. For the soldiers and their families, their deployment seemed like a life time. God brought them home safely...Now we pray for the remainder of those Texas soldiers and all the others who are serving. Master Chaplain Larry Todd. Thank you for your report Chaplain Todd. CMD Donald J. Gibson, CMD Bruce E. Francis

Senior Chaplain David Ray from Michigan:  Senior Chaplain David Ray from Michigan reporting in. Hello to everyone! I haven't reported in for a while because of health problems that put me in the hospital, but doing much better now. Our food ministry had a set back also because the place where we partnered with(a well known food distributer)had some issues with some illegal goings on,so we desided to distance ourselves from them. We went with another food ministry to help us with feeding the needy. Our ministry helped donate last month over 500lbs. of food to 2 different food banks, plus 2 large boxes of clothes. We also help the children at St. Joseph's Indian School in South Dakoda with clothes and school supplies every other month.The Lord has given us a heart to help them because they are some of the poorest families in America living on a reservation. May the Lord bless everyone of my fellow chaplains and give them strength and courage to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the less fortunate. In HIS Service, Chaplains David & LaVonna Ray. Thank you for your update Chaplain Ray you and LaVonna are doing a wonderful and blessed work.     CMD Donald Gibson, CMD Bruce Francis

From the Home Office: As a rule we do not post items in the news. We received the following from the Christian Law Association. We believe this is of interest to all of us. A NC Pastor’s Invitation to Offer the Opening Legislative Prayer for the NC House of Representatives Was Rescinded Because His Religion Requires Him to Pray in Jesus’ Name Dr. Ron Baity, pastor of Berean Baptist Church, Winston Salem, NC, is requesting a letter of apology and another opportunity to offer the open legislative prayer before the North Carolina House of Representatives after his initial invitation for the week of May 31 to June 3 was rescinded because Pastor Baity’s religion requires him to pray in Jesus’ Name. Pastor Baity said: “I was made to feel like a second class North Carolinian when I was told that my services would no longer be needed if I could not offer the opening prayer in the manner prescribed by the House of Representatives, rather than in the manner my Biblical faith requires. It appears that only those religious leaders willing to pray a government prescribed prayer will be given the honor of participating in this legislative prayer exercise in the future.” Attorney David C Gibbs III, of Gibbs Law Firm and the Christian Law Association of Seminole, Florida, who appeared with Dr. Baity at his Press Conference on July 8, 2010, noted: “The First Amendment promises all Americans the free exercise of their religion, which includes the right to pray as their faith requires, even when they are invited to open state legislative sessions with prayer. We trust that the North Carolina House of Representatives will realize its mistake and will offer Pastor Baity another opportunity to pray without requiring him to use a prayer that is mandated by the government.” Attorney Gibbs added: “There is no authority in American history, tradition or Supreme Court precedent that requires a legislature to censor a private citizen’s prayers in order to participate in a benefit or privilege that is offered to other citizens of the state.” Dr. Baity released a lengthy letter written by his attorneys at his Press Conference explaining the underlying legal principles for allowing Dr. Baity to have the opportunity to pray. This letter has been sent to the both the Speaker and the Clerk of the House. A response is being requested within ten days. Chaplain Don Gibson
Chaplain Mike Smith Michigan: Hello everyone! I apologize for not keeping up with updates, however I have been very busy. In April I was approved to go into the Livingston County Jail in Howell, Michigan. I preach nearly every Sunday and I am there on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Tuesday of the month. I am still working in the Washtenaw County Jail in Ann Arbor Michigan every Thursday night. Please pray for more doors and opportunities to open up. In June two things happened. We had our Summer Revival at Washtenaw where I was privileged to speak 4 times during the week. During the second service we had the privilege of seeing 2 young men pray and trust in Jesus Christ alone as their only hope for Heaven. On that Friday and Saturday of the same week I got to go to Jackson State Prison here in Michigan in cooperation with Prison Fellowships. Chaplain Mike Smith

Master Chaplain David Fair from Brownwood Texas: A good report from the Dallas oncologist. Low grade lymphoma as he expected, the bone marrow was clear. PET SCAN and biopsy indicate low grade.The course of action is to see the doctor again in three months then another scan in 6 months. Doc said that the standard course at this point is to monitor everything and no treatment unless something changes.He said I could do whatever I felt like doing. He was very positive and we are pleased with the prognosis.God answers prayer! Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I report tomorrow to Camp Mabry in Austin for state active duty for Alex. Best regards, Chaplain David J.Fair
Chaplain Rachael L. Gutierrez is from Texas reporting in from Prishtina, Kosovo: Dear Chaplain Gibson, I learned the meaning of what it is to truly be a chaplain. When I first became a chaplain back in 2006 I did not realize the full impact of the name "chaplain." When you explained to me that a true chaplain embraces all people regardless of race or religion. I agreed with this whole-heartedly at the time but still was not aware of what this truly entailed. Yesterday here in Prishtina, Kosovo I passed a demonstration and asked Pastor Rrahman Mavriqi from the Church of the Good News what was the demonstration about. Pastor Mavriqi begin to explain that this was a Muslim demonstration against the Ministry of Religion here in Prishtina because they refuse to allow the Muslims to dress in their attire during school. I told Pastor Mavriqi that I did not think this was right for the government to be able to demand any religion of people to dress a certain way because it is God who gives us our right to serve Him and not mankind. The next thing I know the pastor is asking me would I like to voice my opinion. Of course, me being who I am - with a big mouth and all, said: "Sure, why not!" At the time I did not realize what was in store for me. We walked toward the crowd and the pastor spoke to several people and the next thing I know I am standing before ten thousand Muslims with a mic in my hand and fifty television cameras! I thought I would just be saying a few words in front of a few hundred people. Thank God the Holy Spirit was with me! I spoke about people's right to serve God as their hearts lead them to do so. I also spoke about the government not having the right to take away anyone's religious freedom, be it Christian, Muslim, Jew, or anyone else. I also told these people that a true Christian loves and embraces all people, not just other Christians. As I stood there talking in front of everyone I realized the impact of the statements I was making and the truth behind the words. This broadcast went out to every country and was picked up by many newspaper articles. I have dealt with many Muslims during my stay here in Kosovo and the message I have given to everyone of them is that Jesus is the love of God and we need to unite as people. I have seen many miracles since I have arrived here and I thank God for the opportunity to serve Him in the capacity of a chaplain. Thank you Chaplain Gibson for the opportunity to serve God and to be able to reach all races and religions of people by being a true chaplain of God. God is good all the time! May God bless you in all endeavors concerning Him and His ministry. Sincerely Yours in Christ, Chaplain Rachael L. Gutierrez Prishtina, Kosovo. Please Keep Chaplain Gutierrez in your prayer, Chaplain Gibson & Chaplain Francis

Congratulations to Chaplain Skip Straus from Emergency Ministries Texas:  Emergency Ministries will now be providing Chaplaincy services to one the largest, privately-held EMS system in the US. The company has almost 3000 paramedics in three states. They run ambulances, helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. They also have offshore medics, monitoring systems, a National EMS Academy and safety services. They are a forward-thinking company as evidenced by who I will be working with, a woman who has been providing Critical Incident Intervention and employee support with the company for over 12 years. That’s unheard of in our industry. This call also allowed me to take my “step out of the boat” and resign my full time position (working 24 hour shifts) to go full time with the ministry. It will be a major adjustment in Cindy and I’s life, as this move is a large pay cut and I will continue to have to pull some part time shifts and keep doing some consulting work. But, we believe this is something GOD has designed and, as Henry Blackaby says, we want to “join HIM where HE is working.” I am nervous and excited all at the same time. We ask for continued prayer for more contributors to come alongside us and also, that we grow this in GOD’s way and that we do not take our eyes off of JESUS. In the future Skip will be looking for chaplains in different areas who would like to work in the emergency services ministry. Anyone interested MUST have EMS experience. Chaplain Straus is a long time member and Master Chaplain with Chaplain Fellowship Ministries. Congratulations Chaplain Straus! Chaplain Gibson, Chaplain Francis

Chaplain Jo Ann Lea checked in: What a journey the Lord has prepared for my ministry as a Chaplain. When I began both school and practium I just knew the Lord had planned for me to minister in the prison system or on the street in some way. Since this has been where most of my adult work experience was. As I began to apply I found friends ready and waiting to help my entry as a Chaplain into these areas. However each door was closed through a series of seemly random events. Only not really so random -as I walked into a local hosp. and was introduced to the Pastoral Care Dept. I was home!! I was greeted by the Priest and rather quickly given a few words of wisdom and support, without a doubt I knew that moment I was where God had sent me. Within a week or so I found my self working with an awesome, God loving staff, so willing to serve the Lord. So willing to give comfort as God would have us do in his name, with his grace. Through the staff and other Chaplains I grow into this field daily. Not me but the Lord choose this path and I see great blessing and hope, faith each day I walk the floor. I am currently involved in a citywide prayer group with my church as well as visit those who are ill at home (or shut ins). I look forward to beginning my training through CFM courses. I thank God for CFM and the opportunity to find these gifts laid before me. God Bless and hope to meet many in Sept. conference JLEA

Chaplain Kenneth McCarthy checked in: Hello my dear brothers and sisters in Christ. As a faculty member within my school district I experience many different issues; these issues range from drugs, to violence to sexual promiscuity among our teens in addition to many dysfunctional homes that these children are raised in. I believe the area that I reside that God is moving by His spirit and as a chaplain my duty is to pray and seek God\'s face on these families behalf. I believe where I am in life is God\'s doing. I believe God to shake up this small town. And it begins with myself and so many others here that are in tune to the voice of God. I know within the public school district that we are to not talk about Christ and it is sad that you have to feel out one another before mentioning His name, but God is moving without a doubt and I will do my part which is to live by faith, pray love without hypocrisy and to share the gospel as I am able.

Chaplain Brenda Almquist checked in: Chaplain Michael Paar and myself will again be holding 2 services today at Columbia Correctional Institute today, a maximum security prison in Portage, WI. Report 2: I visit patients at St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield, WI weekly.
