Our Chaplains respond to calls for service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, in support of our First Responders and communities.

We serve and value all people, regardless of their faith background, during some of the most difficult moments and challenging seasons of their lives.

Our aim is to provide the relationships, tools, and resources necessary for:

  • Our First Responders to sustain emotional intelligence, stress management, healthy recovery, and reactivation.
  • Our community members to navigate their way through trauma in the midst of emergencies and crises.

Our Chaplains are equipped for:

  • Basic Confidential Counseling
  • Critical Incident/Scene Stabilization
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Critical Incident Stress Management
  • Death Notification
  • Peer Support
  • Family Support
  • Line of Duty Deaths
  • Community Outreach


Our primary service is Steven’s County-wide, and specifically with Chief Mike Bucy and Steven’s County Fire Protection Dist. 1.


We also partner closely with our brothers and sisters of the Spokane County Sheriff’s Chaplain’s Office.

Examples of where your gifts are directed:

Resources for our First Responder’s Needs:
