  • Army Chaplain Steve Moser; Army Chaplain Doug Prentice served two tours

Army Chaplain David Bowlus has deployed with his Ranger Battalion and Ranger Regiment numerous times to many regions in the world, including Iraq and Afghanistan.

Middle East and Persian Gulf

  • U. S. Navy Chaplain Jeff Milne has deployed with the Navy to the Persian Gulf and with the Marines to the Middle East
  • National Guard Chaplains Jesse Hall and Shelby Grant are deploying with their units to the Middle East
  • Other Alliance Chaplains have been deployed with their National Guard and Reserve units as well, including Rich Bower, Pierre Allegre, Jeff Wheeland and Jeff Taylor

Chaplain Aaron White recalls a non-Alliance military chaplain who served with him in Afghanistan, saying: “Nurture the living, care for the wounded, honor the dead. This is what we are called to do everyday.”

┬áBob Collins, retired Army chaplain and director for Alliance Chaplain Ministries, agrees: “Pray for our chaplains. They are missionaries to a different culture, preaching the gospel in areas where no pastor or missionary can go. Their appointments are made by God!”
