Summary: Originally on

I have had the joy of being

stationed at Fort Carson several

times. In 2001, I was in the Army

Reserve and I worked out of Veterans

Chapel. Chap. (Col.) John Powledge,

Chap. (Maj.) Bill Fox and I prayed

there would be a contemporary

service at the chapel, so we were

glad that Chapel Next began. I

hear there are a couple of hundred

people attending it now.

While I was in the 68th Corps

Support Battalion I preached out

of Provider Chapel when it had a

Protestant service. We also had it

packed out for unit briefi ngs. I

recently did a wedding there, so

it was nice to remember the good

times with our Soldiers.

When I was with the 4th Special

Troops Battalion, Prussman Chapel

is where I was a co-pastor of the

Gospel service, and I enjoyed

playing keys with their choir. We

had a lot of fun together. It is also

where I attended the memorial for

Chap. (Capt.) Dale Goetz. I also had

the honor of working with Chap.

(Maj.) Tim Vakoc, who was severely

wounded in Iraq. May Jesus comfort

their Families and friends.

Soldiers’ Memorial Chapel is

where I regrettably have had to

lead memorials. I also had the joy

of preaching there during the

Protestant service. I attended

many unit ministry team meetings

there as well.

After being the deputy/senior

clinician of the Department of

Ministry and Pastoral Care at Healer

Chapel, I have preached and prayed

at promotions many times. It has

been a privilege to have worked

out of all of Fort Carson’s chapels

over 13 years.

Fort Carson’s chapels are calling.

How will you answer?

In Matthew 11:28-30, Christ said

“Come to me, all who are weary and

heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you and learn

from me, for I am gentle and humble

in heart, and you will fi nd rest for

your souls. For my yoke is easy and

my burden is light.”
