A mission and ministry to share Christ’s love in our community with those who have suffered loss, due to displacement, violence, crisis or natural disaster by meeting their needs through faith-based assistance, crisis intervention and support.

As a Chaplain for many years, first as an Emergency Services Chaplain and now as a community Chaplain, I have come to recognize the blessing of  sharing Gods word and seeing His power change lives. This ministry would include devotions at Parades for our local Fire Station and Police Station, building relationships with people and being available to minister in whichever form by offering support and encouragement in times of crisis, loss and trauma.

 

Assistance may take place in many different ways such as assisting and supporting the destitute, comforting the bereaved, assisting those who are struggling with or facing difficulties of any kind,visiting the sick, attending to the bereaved and offering crisis intervention and trauma support.

 

We believe in the calling to rebuild community through the renewal and restoration of peoples lives through Jesus Christ, and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through being present, a light and the salt. We want to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. To show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. 
Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we will be walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

Walking with God

Rebuilding lives - Restoring community

Cover, Move & Pray.

As Chaplains, ( and any Christ Follower) we may be sent by God into situations of crisis, danger and darkness Although under Gods covering and led by the Holy Spirit, is essential that the other team (i.e. other Chaplains) cover the team moving into danger. A chaplain needs to ‘ train their weapon’ looking out and watching for threats or imminent attack by the enemy. Our weapons : the Sword of the Spirit (Gods word), prayer and counsel of the wise.

How was Paul able to declare that he was” More than a Conqueror”? It is the victory of the soul and the spirit, over the external circumstance! The victory that Paul alludes to is the inner strength of the soul to overcome the external happening around us. What would Paul say or write of our current situation? Would he spend hour upon hour analysing the social media posts about Covid19, the conspiracy of vaccinations or would he ask about the response of our souls to what is going on around us? Would he not say, We are MORE than conquerors; greater than what is happening in the world today?

Undefeatable–Gods power of reconciliation

I had seen so much, carried the pain of others on my shoulders, comforted families and people in the depths of their pain, sorrow and grief.  But the stories remained attached to my soul; the pain and the emotions that I had carried, began to weigh me down.
