I am a licensed and ordained Chaplain and a Christian counselor:

1) My main function is to assist those in crisis and to provide spiritual counsel through the process of Biblical teaching to all individuals, families, and groups. (Galatians 6:9-10)

2) All private counsel is kept confidential, except situations where it is deemed that the person counseled will be a danger to themselves or to others. (Galatians 6:7)

3) As a Chaplain my work involves visiting the sick, the afflicted, the bereaved, the down trodden, and assist them as needed according to my ability's. My mission is to minister to the police departments, fire departments, families of those departments, victims of Crime, prisoners, those who are hospitalized, those confined to nursing homes, the terminally ill, and so on. (James 1:27, James 2:14-17)

4) As a chaplain I am to have the confidence that God has furnished me through the scriptures all things pertaining to life and Godliness (2 Peter 1:3) If I don't believe it I will not teach it, if I do not know it I cannot teach it (Hosea 4:6; Hebrews 5:12) I am to study to gain knowledge (2 Timothy 2:15) and to pray for wisdom as to how I am to use that knowledge (James 1:5). The laws and principals which are essential to life and Godliness have been given to me by God in the Holy Scriptures (Deuteronomy 29:2; 2 Peter 1:3). They are easy to understand and easy to apply (psalm 19:7; 1 John 5:3. It is the gospel of Jesus Christ that penetrates minds, gives hope, changes lives, and saves souls, (mark 16:15- 16; Romans 1:16-17; Romans 8:24; Ephesians 4:3-6)

5) As a chaplain I often find myself in situations (nursing homes, police departments, Hospitals and prisons) where not everyone believes what I do, or accept what believe. Then my primary role as spiritual care giver is to be all things to all people, at the same time not compromising the truth in order to do so. That means that I must seek the truth with a spirit of meekness and gentleness (Colossians 4:6), not with maliciousness or ill will. I must be patient with everyone (1 Thessalonians 5:14), and rejoice in the fact that I have been given the opportunity to provide spiritual assistance.
