Why A Chaplain?

"What does it mean to me to have the Chaplain program with Harris County?   Having the Chaplain program gives the Deputies on patrol another tool to use while on scenes. People have a tendency to open up to religion, where they might not to a uniformed officer. I’ve been on scenes where a complainant/witness, or even a suspect, will not say one word to me, but the second they see “CHAPLAIN” written on the back of a person’s polo, they tell everything they know and more. On top of the help Chaplains provide on scene, they help the Deputies, too. They provide guidance and advice to Deputies who are struggling because of personal matters or because of something they witnessed on a scene."  Dep. Christopher Mook

"I just wanted to take a few moments to say thank you, for the Awesome! two days of intense study and On-hands training that I received on July 14-15, 2017.  I have never attended a class that was so well organized.  I thank God for the professionalism that was displayed from the beginning to the end and all of the instructors were very professional in their attitude, appearance, and speech.  They were all very knowledgeable of the material in which they were teaching.  If I rate your organization on a scale from (1-10), I definitely would give you guys a (10).  I am so proud of myself to have attended and received my certification as a Certified and Ordained Chaplain thru Crisis Chaplaincy of Texas.  Your organization is a class act!  Also did I mention the hospitality, Awesome!  And I  will recommend to anyone that is seeking their certification in Chaplaincy.  I pray that God will continue to bless your organization with the resources and finances that it needs to educate men and women on how to be effective Chaplains.  May God bless guide and keep you, is our prayer."  Dr. Ronnie R. Matthews, Sr.

"It is with honor and appreciation I speak about the great team of volunteers that serve the members of the Harris County Sheriff's Office as well as the citizens of Harris County.  Their heart to serve is incredible and their passion to serve is unquenchable.  The Harris County Sheriffs Office is blessed by their service, dedication and commitment to excellence."   Sgt. Don Savell
