A New Chaplain’s Experience
Recent Audio Chaplain Reports from the Field
Four PRCC Chaplains gave brief ministry reports to PCA GA Commissioners recently at the PCA GA. We encourage you to listen to this audio presentation to get a taste of what is currently going on within the PRCC Chaplaincy.
Pastor Uses Volunteer Chaplaincy to Reach Out and Serve His Community
Rev. Michael Langer, of One Ancient Hope Presbyterian Church in Iowa City, IA. provides a service/ministry to his community at large, and also extends the Gospel at the same time as a volunteer fire department chaplain. Through his chaplaincy ministry, he meets and serves people who would likely never visit his church. The PRCC has many men who are doing this with fire departments, law enforcement agencies and retirement centers. One Chaplain sets up tables outside county courthouses to offer prayer and support to people going in and out of the courthouses.. Many of these Chaplain/Pastors report that this ministry has brought new members into their churches. Read this recent newspaper article about Pastor Langer’s ministry. We encourage you to “go and do likewise”. For more information on this ministry opportunity, please email ChaplainMinistries@pcanet.org.
