Chaplain Bob has just finished the National Incident Management Training from FEMA as part of the Homeland Security disaster response team and is also a member of the Blue Ridge Critical Incident Stress Team. In addition to his service in law enforcement chaplaincy, he also serves as a volunteer chaplain at Augusta Health, where he is also a member of the chaplain’s supervisory committee.

He has spoken at the Virginia Occupational Safety and Health annual conference on his experiences at the WTC disaster site and has shared his story with many local civic organizations as well.

Bob is supported by his lovely wife, Linda Gail. Her encouragement and moral support have been invaluable.

After trying his hand at scuba diving and flying, Bob’s more conservative hobbies include horses, mini-farming, fishing and singing barbershop and gospel music. He feels called to teach and loves to provide renewal and revival programs for Christian faith groups of all denominations.

His perfect retirement plan includes an RV with a ministry that travels wherever God leads.
