Fire and Corporate Chaplaincy
This is a new ministry of Hope Ministries that extends an outreach to the community. It is patterned after military chaplaincy. The goal is to provide a chaplain in the workplace in the tradition of military chaplaincy and that of fire and police. The focus of the work is to provide a presence in the workplace: allowing workers to know their Chaplain.
The major thrust of this ministry is to the Fire Service. Our chaplain has experience in the fire service and a desire to provide service to Fire and Rescue workers. There is a willingness to provide service in any employment setting where management and workers are desirous of a Chaplain's Service.
Chaplain Joe Pellizze leads the Hope Ministries Fire and Corporate Chaplain's Service. He is President of Hope Ministries and is a pastor and pastoral counselor. The service is offered without charge to the employer and their employees.
