Graduation Night

20191009_200753Last night I graduated from the Chaplains Training Academy at Only Hope Prison Ministries.  It has been eighteen months of intensive study and application.

Rich Hines, the main instructor, concluded the evening  with

 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with [a]great patience and instruction. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. – 2 Timothy 4:1-5 NASB

Father God,

Thank you for calling me to this work.  May I always speak Your truth to those who you put in my path.



  1. Congratulations Barb! Going through 18 months of training shows your dedication. I pray the Lord will continue to use you abundantly on this journey to touch the lives of inmates and others you encounter.
