Hillsborough County Chapter

Since January 2017, multitudes of events have been conducted that impacted the lives of our First Responders and Military Veterans throughout the Hillsborough County area. The list below are some of the highlights from these incredible three years. The list include opportunities to train, mentor, speak, and provide a ministry of presence through visitation at work, home and the hospital. 

Pinellas County Chapter

The C2 Pinellas Chapter began in OCT 2020 and has already impacted the lives of the Largo Fire Department. From OCT to Dec, 2020, Chaplain Will Murphy, the C2 Chapter Director and CH Dan Horne, the newest C2 Chaplain, have ministered to over 250 Fire Rescue personnel, helped to support 9 First Responder Events, and have completed over 100 hours of personal development training to include the Chaplaincy Care Academy 101-301, Behavior Health Foundations, SAF-T training and CVI Program.

Chaplaincy Care held their annual training and Vision Banquet on 16 January. The training provided an overview of the Core Value Index program now used by C2 Chaplains to assist First Responders in the various areas of relationships, resiliency, and trauma clearing. The vision for C2 for 2021 is to grow the Chaplaincy Corps for the HCPS-Security, enhance the CVI training platform, and to increase our impacts for the Military, both active duty and retired.

From JAN 1-31, the continual “ministry of Presence” of C2 was expressed in:

  • 22 Sites visit (HCSO, HCFR, PCFR, HCPS-S, FBI-Tampa)

  • Total Impacts: 30 sites, 23 Events, 46 M/LC sessions

Chaplaincy Care Counseling Center (C4)

We continue to move forward in the 3 to 5-year plan of development and resourcing for the C2 Counseling Center. C4 is excited to have our newest member of the team, Lee West, come on as an additional counselor for our heroes and their families. He will begin seeing clients in February.

Chaplaincy Care Academy

The primary thrust for 2021 is to train and build a proactive and progressive C2 Chaplain’s corps. The main concentration will be with HCPS-Security Chaplains and Largo Fire Rescue Chaplains. There were 6 CH 101 student for this month and 3 CH 201 students.

Closing Thought: We are charting new territory for CVI training and Veteran’s impacts. The next steps for Operation Restore to impact 2 counties is underway. God is opening doors in an amazing way. Please pray for wisdom and financial resources.
