Just what I need and needed

January 1, 2023, we started, with an inaugural group of pastors, Chaplain‘s ministry for our county. throughout our time of trying to put together a Chaplain ministry, we struggled with what to do, what to include, training, and certifications. How do we do what we do when we don’t have an example to follow. We are just starting.
I did a lot of research and we got to do different trainings and we have developed what will be a wonderful chaplains ministry here.
Also, being someone that listens to podcasts, I checked out many different ones. However, Jared‘s podcast has struct accord in my heart, and I do my best to share it with other, law-enforcement, other chaplains, and pretty much anybody that wants to listen to me talk a little bit about chaplaincy.
I am currently doing my best to be back in shape and so I do a lot of walking and this is my podcast of choice. I am learning about different ministries that can be a part of chaplaincy as well as part of law-enforcement that I have never understood before.
Thank you so much, Jared, for what you do, for what you have done, and what you continue to do for the Law Enforcement community, and those that happen upon your podcast.
Lastly, I asked some of our deputies about their worst car, and it seems that the Crown Vic is probably the Victor of the worst. 😁
Thanks again!

Every coo or person who loves a cop should listen to this podcast

Jared is very laid back and his guests tell it as it is. I use clips for training and for my own personal growth.
