Romans 12:1-4-8 - Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.

The Lord has called each of us to live for a cause a lot greater than ourselves. If He were to asked you today what have you done for the poor, the suffering or the needy, what could you say? Jesus had a special place in His heart for the poor. Spend some time with the Lord and ask Him how you may use your gifts and talents to improve the life of the poor, the suffering or the needy in your own communities.

John 14:12 -13 - “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. This you can count on if you are faithful in your faith and your heart is true. I have seen it time and time again in my own life. Chaplain Gibson

My dear wife Tina and I have traveled all over the United States and have lived and worked with people of many different ethnic, educational and faith backgrounds. We know without a doubt in our hearts that we must stand firmly rooted in the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. We must live the life He has called us to as servants and messengers of His gospel and His ministry.

James 2:14 - Dear brothers and sisters, what's the use of saying you have faith if you don't prove it by your actions? That kind of faith can't save anyone. Chaplains go where others would never dream of going. Please never let anyone tell you that you are not good enough, or smart enough, listen to your hearts and following the Lords' calling in your lives. Many claim to have faith, but my question always is, are they faithful? Faith to the unfaithful is worthless. Just something to think about. Chaplain Gibson

Chaplain Fellowship Ministries is about the great commission by recruiting good hardworking people who have been there to go out into the world, spreading the gospel, going to where the suffering and pain is, not waiting for them to come to us. We have been given a vision and a wonderful calling to build a mighty ministry for the Glory of the Lords' Kingdom. The apostle Paul said that all believers in Christ are part of "one body". And if one part suffers, "all the member parts suffer". Therefore, we must ask ourselves: Do we grieve when a brother or sister is in trouble? Do we experience sorrow and pain in our hearts when a child of God is stricken with afflictions and trials? If not, we must get on our knees and ask our Lord and Savior to help us become the kind of people who can understand and share the pain and suffering of others.

When Jesus asks us to follow and obey Him, His call comes with the promise of the protection, guidance, sustenance, and rest that we need at that time in our lives. His call is suited to our needs, He knows us intimately, He walked among the poor, the out cast, the forgotten and the lost. Please remember one thing, if you don't remember anything else! You make a living from what you get in life, but you make a life from what you give of yourself." We as chaplains must have Jesus as our Lord and Savior in our everyday lives, without Him we have nothing, without Him we are nothing.

James 2:13 - "For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment." Does anyone not want a merciful judgment from God, before whom all must stand?

Please don't just read scripture, stop and think about what it means. There is always a lesson to be learned. Reading scripture only means nothing, if we don't act on it. One night I was watching a program on TV about prisons and inmates. One of the cases was about a young man who served 16 months in prison for stealing a loaf of bread and a can of tuna to feed his wife and two children who were homeless and hungry. I can not help but wonder who the Lord was most displeased with; the man who stole to feed his family when they were hungry, or the people who put him in prison for 16 months leaving his family on the street, homeless, for taking less than five dollars worth of groceries to feed his family? I find such thinking very sad, where was the mercy in this situation? which is just one of the thousands if not hundreds of thousands of stories we hear today. Chaplain Gibson

John 13:35 - Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” This is one that we had all better start thinking about! Help each other and those in need, follow your hearts and let the love of Jesus Christ show through you.

Becoming Ordained: Those who join Chaplain Fellowship Ministries become legally ordained as nondenominational chaplains and ministers. This gives them the freedom to minister without all the politics and religious entanglement that may have kept them from following their calling in the past. Becoming an ordained chaplain and minister opens up a whole new world of opportunities and a totally different way to reach those who are in need or suffering. Many pastors who have become ordained as member and chaplains start feeling the blessings once again that they had forgotten, or had not felt in many years. I can assure you the chaplains of Chaplain Fellowship Ministries not only understand the Gospel of Jesus, they walk it daily in a major way for the Glory of His Kingdom. Will you come join us, Folks you can make a difference! Something we all need to think about, "to the world we might just be one person, but to one person we may be the world".

Matthew 6:33-34 - But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Special note to everyone who feels they have been called to the ministry: Never let your lack of education or life history keep you from pursuing what GOD has called you to do, we have all made mistakes. It has always amazed me when some people who call themselves Christians go out of their way to try and belittle, degrade and hurt their brothers and sisters. The Body of Christ is made up of many different parts, not just the self righteous who who place themselves above others. How can anyone say that they have the love of Jesus Christ in their heart and turn around and attack those who following their calling by serving in His ministry. Many have no idea that 70% of Chaplains serving in the world today do not get paid; they are volunteers working to help make this world just a little bit better for those who have nothing and no where to turn in their time of need. I don't know about you, but I will always do anything and everything I can to stay faithful to the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and the ministry that HE has called me to.

The majority of ministry and missionary activity in the early Church and Ministry was accomplished by nonprofessionals, ordinary men and women involved in secular work as their occupations. Jesus entrusted the laity "ordinary people" with major responsibilities of spreading the Gospel. He took fishermen from their boats, He made them fishers of men. Jesus knew that ordinary people would become extraordinary when empowered by the Holy Spirit. When the Lord calls us into His ministry He does not place any limitations on us, we are only limited by our own imaginations. We look forward to speaking with you about your calling and how we may be able to help you further your reach in the ministry. Thank you for your time, Chaplain Donald Gibson

2 Peter 1:5-7 - Make every effort to add to your faith , goodness; and to your goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love."

All donations no matter how small are a wonderful blessing and will help add more and more chaplains to the mission field to help others who are less fortunate, loss or have no where else to turn. With the Lords' guidance, blessings and grace our members are making a difference in the lives of thousands every day nationwide. Bless you and thank you for your time and your interest in Chaplain Fellowship Ministries.
