All In a Quarter’s Work

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][text_output]Report compiled by Andy Meverden, Director of Chaplaincy

CBAmerica requires quarterly reports from each military chaplain serving on active duty or in a fulltime status. Chaplain Darin Dunham’s report from Naval Station Mayport, Florida, reflects the ministry of many of the 40 Chaplains currently on Active Duty. When asked to share his greatest blessing of the quarter he writes, “Hard to determine a single greatest blessing, I feel tremendously blessed in a lot of areas. We continue to enjoy our current assignment with family doing very well and enjoying favor with the command. Initial efforts in the first few years have provided the foundation for well-established working relationships with squadron Commanding Officers. This final year has the making of a good one.”

We ask our chaplains to quantify the outcomes of their ministry activities. Chaplain Dunham reports: 3 worship services, 11 Bible Studies/small groups, 9 (NINE) crisis interventions, 3 first-time decisions, 11 rededications and 1 baptism! These are encouraging results for the first quarter of 2015. When asked for what we can pray, Darin writes: “I’m currently negotiating my next orders (assignment). We appreciate prayers for God’s will to be manifest in the process. We will be crossing a critical juncture in the life of our son as he transitions from high school to college. Our next assignment will influence our options for (his) education.”

Andy Meverden, Director of Chaplaincy, adds, “Each quarter’s ministry results vary, but we can get an idea of the amount, quality, and impact of CBAmerica’s chaplain corps world-wide. Pray for ministry effectiveness, family health and well-being, and for those who will be facing transition and transfer this year. This is a prime example of how CB chaplains are active today reaching those others can’t.”
