Grace Brethren U.S. Navy chaplain Dayne Nix (pictured with his wife, Linda) recently was reassigned from Iceland to San Diego, California.

Of his new assignment, Chaplain Nix writes:

“I am director of the Southwest Region Spiritual Fitness Division. We have responsibility to provide ministry in two areas: retreat ministry for our Sea Service men and women and training for our Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corps Chaplains.

“In the area of retreats, we provide monthly marriage retreats, personal growth retreats, spiritual growth retreats, team building seminars, and women’s retreats.

“In the area of training, I provide annual training for about 100 regional chaplains in the Navy Chaplain Corps six core competencies. It is a very exciting ministry.”

According to a recent Eagle Commission newsletter by coordinator Larry Chamberlain, Grace Brethren Chaplain Endorsing Agent John Schumacher recently returned from two weeks of ministry in Guatemala, where he represented the National Association of Evangelicals International Chaplaincy Commission on a mission to train chaplains in the military, police, and prison systems.

Schumacher is scheduled to do the same in the Dominican Republic in April, with possible future opportunities elsewhere.
