Like the Live Oak Tree, Chaplaincy has deep roots and many branches of opportunity to serve people with the love of Christ. At the core of our ministry, the root that gives us life is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our Chaplains learn to serve together with a community of believers, like a family, on mission for Jesus to a particular people group.
Our Chaplains are dedicated, mature and growing believers who follow the call of God on their lives to reach out to people in need. The many branches of ministry performed by our Chaplains include, for example:
- Recovery from addictions
- Jail, prison, and those recently released or on parole
- Disabled and special needs
- Troubled teens
- Sex trafficking victims
- Nursing home/assisted living
- English as a second language
- Emergency, crisis, and critical incidents
- Marriage and family care
- Military and veterans
- Police and fire
- The homeless
- Office and workplace environment
- Motorcycle ministry
Do you remember the story of "The Good Samaritan"?
Jesus told about the most unlikely of individuals, just a regular Joe like you and me, one who the professionals least expected to do any good. The Samaritan stopped and helped the man. He bandaged his wounds, gave him cool water, carried him to an Inn where he could receive extended care. He even promised to come back and check on his progress and pay any unpaid bills. That, my friends, is a picture of what it looks like to be one of our Chaplains.
