Public Safety/Community Chaplaincy

Public Safety/Community Chaplaincy

Public safety and community chaplains are comforters, pastors, teachers and counselors. They are creative and understanding as they demonstrate God’s grace and love in ministering to people. They serve law enforcement, fire departments and emergency services agencies by ministering to the employees of those agencies as well as the people served in the community. These experienced pastors help people discover spiritual resources and faith by providing worship services, religious education, pastoral care and counseling. They serve in both full-time and part-time paid positions. Many also serve as volunteers.
