Alliance Military Chaplains Meet

military-chaplains-meetAlliance military chaplains and their families met for fellowship, training, and spiritual blessing in Colorado Springs on August 7–10. Some of the high points were:

  • Training on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is an issue many returning soldiers are facing.
  • Testimonials of God’s power in their lives. Chaplain (CPT) Aaron White, U.S. Army, 82nd Airborne, Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, told of God’s grace and provision during his 15 months in Afghanistan. LT Don Twist, CHC, U.S. Navy, shared his own struggles with PTSD and how God has been so faithful to both him and his family.
  • Dr. Daniel Shayesteh spoke on Christianity and Islam.
  • Chaplain (1LT) Rob Olson became our newest Alliance Army Chaplain when the Oath of Office was given and he was pinned (crosses were placed on his uniform by fellow chaplains). Chaplain Rob and his wife, Katie, will begin their new ministry at Ft. Stewart, Georgia.
  • Major General Bob Dees, U.S. Army (Retired) spoke at the Chaplain Banquet on Saturday evening, and Rev. David Goodin was the guest pastor for the Sunday morning worship time.

Please continue to pray for our chaplains and their families. Erik Gramling and Steve Moser are now deployed to the Middle East.

Please note that the above event was not funded by the Great Commission Fund. Funds given by these chaplains and others enable support for our military and other chaplaincy personnel.
