Chaplains

The Hall County Fire Services chaplains are made up of Senior Pastors from local churches. They serve strictly on a volunteer basis and share the duties of ministering and fellowshipping among the 16 fire stations.

The primary mission of the Hall County Fire Chaplains is to minister to the spiritual and emotional needs of all department employees and their families. Together we will work together with various county agencies in an effort to help bring hope and healing to the men and women of the Fire Service.
