What We Do

Our goal and mission is to equip chaplains to serve both the law enforcement officer, the criminally offended and the charged or sentenced offender and his or her family. Law and Grace Chaplains are assimilated into the departments and offices as if they were themselves salaried staff.  They work in all levels of the judicial system, including in court services, law enforcement, corrections and family after care.

We believe that a properly trained and caring chaplain in a courtroom can deal with the hurts and confusions that the victims as well as the families of the offenders suffer.

We believe that the police chaplain has a duty to support the law enforcement officer with daily prayer and personal assistance when needed. Law & Grace believes these men and women literally fulfill both a biblical and God-appointed role as “ministers of God” (Romans 13) and are ordained to that end.

We believe a chaplain trained in corrections can work with the criminal and general inmate alike. We preach Christ and teach biblical morals and principles that will help men and women make right decisions to restore personal and family victories and change their lives.

In order to accomplish our goal and be an asset to the local community we just use the local church. We make our materials available to the local church, understanding that upon release all inmates will need further teaching to be an effective asset to his or her community.

In addition to our main goal above, Law and Grace also ministers in the following ways:

Death Notification Manual

Offered to churches/pastors as well as law enforcement is our new Death Notification Manual. Pastors will never know when they may be called on to notify someone’s next-of-kin that their loved one has passed away.

The “do”s and “don’t”s as well as the “how to”s are all included to help one through this unfortunate crisis.

Instruction seminars on Death Notifications are available through Law and Grace to pastors and law enforcement personnel. Please contact our office if you are interested.
