About Foursquare Chaplains
You’ll find them in jails, but they’ve done nothing wrong. They’re at racetracks, but not to place bets. They are even found in hospitals, but they aren’t sick. They are the Foursquare chaplains, and they are serving God outside the walls of church, taking Jesus outside church doors and straight to those who might not even know how much they need Him. Find out a little more about our brave men and women, and learn what it takes to join them on the front lines of service.

Who leads the chaplains?
Our Foursquare chaplains have a leadership team that provides care and covering for them. Foursquare Chaplains International is overseen by Jason Reynolds, the director. He is supported by Don Eubank, the military chaplain endorser, who is responsible for the endorsement of all our military chaplains; and by Will Ghere, the hospital and prison/jail chaplain endorser; and by Steve Sewell, the hospice and specialized chaplain endorser. Additionally, Jason is also the fire/EMS chaplain endorser, and together Jason, Will and Steve are responsible for the endorsement of all our chaplains serving in a nonmilitary capacity. Additionally, Robby Booth is the chaplain of spiritual care and is responsible for guiding appropriate spiritual care and encouragement. Jay Donnelly oversees the Foursquare Disaster Relief chaplains and associates, and Jeff Mink provides administrative support to every dimension of Foursquare Chaplains International. These leaders are supported by chaplaincy coordinators who provide direct care and covering to a particular type of chaplaincy, including Air Force, Army, Navy/Marines, Civil Air Patrol, Fire, Hospice, Hospital, Police, Prison and in specialized areas.
