MISSOURI CHAPLAIN SERVICES
There are times when we all need a caring friend. Sometimes disaster strikes without warning; other times the heroes in our life pass away and their service to the Nation needs to be honored. We're here to offer encouragement and support, and to connect you to caring friends nearby.

Leader, Volunteer Chaplain Program
Clergy trained to provide Spiritual-Emotional Care in times of disaster are a vital resource.

WHO WE ARE
Chaplain Gary retired from the Missouri National Guard as the Senior Command Chaplain. He has decades of ministry experience and training in Congregational Leadership and Disaster Response. He has assisted many during times of Bereavement and Disaster.
Having served the nation and protected our freedoms, our Veterans are worthy of specialized attention to meet their unique needs. This care is part of our "Thank You" for their service.
And when a tornado, flood, ice storm, or other disaster strikes our community, we need the perspective and strength of our enduring Values and Faith.
