SUDDEN EXTREME CRISIS: Most pastors aren’t trained for traumatic events like sudden deaths, suicides, murders, mass casualty incidents, school tragedies and worse. In fact, most Bible colleges, seminaries and Christian universities offer few, if any, courses on ministering to traumatized people. That’s why there are Chaplains.
Chaplains take care of “the team”—they serve the Law Enforcement personnel who protect our communities and the traumatized citizens who face sudden tragic situations. This is why we at Calvary support Chaplaincy Ministry. Associate Pastor Jim Milne served 24 years full time as Deputy Senior Chaplain of Placer County Law Enforcement Chaplaincy where Pastor Jay also ministered as a volunteer. Together they represent almost fifty-five years of experience.
Below are down-loadable resources designed to equip Chaplains. These resources include the Placer County Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Training Manual, designed to develop Chaplaincy ministries and train Law Enforcement Chaplains from the ground up, along with other tools for Chaplains ministering in the field.
Note: The Chaplaincy Training Manual is not for certification with International Conference of Police Chaplains.
