I just received my Crisis Chaplaincy Credentials after completing the course when I was on a street corner and watched a guy get hit by a car and die right in front of me. Thank God I knew what to do in this situation with everyone at the scene. From calling 911, helping the crying wife of the guy that was dying in the road, and the young 21-year-old and his wife that hit him. It is so important to know what to do in crisis situation’s. It can mean the real life and death of a person eternally.

Every minister wants to make a difference through their ministry. Often, the seminary training fails to really give the skills necessary to handle the crises ministers face. While a good theological education is valuable, View all I have found meeting the real problems in a real world involve a different set of skills. Drug problems, marriage issues, sexual issues, anger management and depression are just a few of those problems. Crisis Chaplaincy training is training for the real world. Dr. Haynes has provided this training to men and women across America. His personal experience and theological background provide a solid training experience for any minister wanting to address the life needs in their congregation. I highly recommend this comprehensive training. View less

Passion and Purpose


Passion is more than dreams of great things and following your bliss. It is a burning deep within your heart that you cannot shake. Passion requires a burning in the pit of your stomach that is only tamed when you feed your dreams through accomplishments and actions toward that burn. That feeling of power, drive, energy, and borderline obsession required to achieve your dreams is passion.
