New Co-Directors of Chaplain Ministries
I am pleased to announce the appointment of Tim and Patricia Porter as the new Co-Directors of Chaplain Ministries. Additionally, Tim will assume the role of Chaplain Endorsing Agent for the FMC. Tim and Patricia follow the outstanding work of Rex and Louise Carpenter, who blessed our chaplains for 13 years.
