CIVIL AIR PATROL
I thnk it's important to minister beyond the walls of our churches, and beyond our own membership. To that end, I am the Chaplain in the Winchester Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol, U.S. Air Force Auxilliary. As Civil Air Patrol is the auxilliary of the U.S. Air Force, I have been endorsed by the UUA for this position, and am counted among the 17 military chaplains currently serving in the UUA.
As I serve a composite squadron, I spend time with both cadets and senior officers, providing spiritual support and helping out in other ways wherever I can.
I am currently one of only four mission-qualified chaplains in the Virginia Wing of CAP. This means that I'm qualified to provide emergency chaplain services during any incident that Civil Air Patrol might be called in to assist with. As such, I was privileged to be able to serve at FEMA recently in support of hurricane relief efforts. I believe that my service as a CAP chaplain has made me a better parish minister.
