Our Volunteers
“It is very fulfilling to be part of Knox County Sheriff’s Office Reserve Unit. It enables me to serve the Citizens of Knox County by performing tasks such as mental health transport, working parades, protecting crime scenes, supplementing patrol, and a host of other community events all while maintaining a full-time job. It is a privilege to serve alongside the outstanding men and women of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.”

I volunteer as a chaplain for the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, because it allows me to walk alongside some of the bravest and self-sacrificing men and women who run toward the tragedies and atrocities in our community in order to protect and serve. My experiences as a chaplain have given me glimpses into pain and grief that is often suppressed and masked by the time it reaches public awareness. These glimpses help me have some level of understanding what our officers face, feel, and fear, so I can listen to their emotional and spiritual struggles. I recommend chaplaincy to any pastor who has the margin to get into the messes and darkness of our society in order to bring hope and light.
