Why Chaplaincy?

SUDDEN EXTREME CRISIS: Most pastors aren’t trained for traumatic events—sudden deaths, suicides, murders, mass casualty incidents, school tragedies and worse. In fact, most Bible colleges, seminaries and Christian universities offer little, if any, education in trauma ministry and impacted people. This is why there are Chaplains.

Chaplains take care of the team—they serve local Law Enforcement and Fire personnel as well as citizens impacted by sudden trauma. This is why Calvary Georgetown Divide supports Chaplaincy ministry.

Associate Pastor Jim Milne served 25 years as Deputy Senior Chaplain of Placer County Law Enforcement Chaplaincy where Pastor Jay served 30 years as an active volunteer. Together they represent fifty-five years of experience.

Below are down-loadable resources for Chaplains, including the Placer County Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Training Manual (for the development and training of Law Enforcement Chaplaincies), with other Chaplain’s tools for field use.
