About our Chaplain, Doug Childers...

If I could wrap up my purpose in life into one sentence, it would have to be the following statement; bringing Hope into what seems like a hopeless situation. As a Chaplain, most calls I receive put me in the midst of someone else’s crises. Once invited into this crises, it becomes imperative to remain calm so a resolution can be envisioned by everyone involved. After the crises is calmed down then hope can be introduced into someone’s life. Whether the crises is self inflected or a crises happens because of life itself, there is hope.
