New Chaplains’ Website Online

Nov 20, 2007 | Brethren Digital Archive, Eagle Commission

Dr. Larry Chamberlain, who oversees The Eagle Commission which coordinates with all Grace Brethren military chaplains, has announced the posting of a new website and some compelling video on the chaplaincy. Here is an excerpt from his communication:

I am pleased to announce that a web-site has been established for the Eagle Commission, thanks to the good efforts of Kathy Allison, who had worked with me as Director of Communications and Public Relations during our days together with GBNAM. Kathy is now with Grace Schools, but she has graciously agreed to help us with the web-site’s development and regular maintenance.

The web address is Surf it at your earliest convenience and pray for our co-workers who wear our nation’s uniform, that God will protect them and bless their ministries.

I received word this week from James Schaefer, US Army Chaplain now serving as a recruiter for Army Chaplains, that his efforts have been very successful with the Army exceeding its goals for new Chaplains. He sent to me a link to a recent ABC News report on the Army Chaplaincy.

I encourage you to view the video ( it serves as a compelling reminder of the effective and significant ministry our Chaplains provide for troops in harm’s way.
