Crisis Care

NEIGHBORHOOD CHAPLAINS

Chaplains are spiritual caregivers who reach out to anyone in need.  They have traditionally provided care and support to people going through a hard time.  The role of chaplain keeps people connected to their faith and helps make connections to communities of faith for those who don’t have one. 

At this unprecedented time in our global history, we see neighborhood chaplains as key leaders who mobilize us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Redemption’s neighborhood chaplains are facilitating systems of care and support in neighborhoods throughout Orange County.  They help keep us connected and can connect anyone in need to available resources. 

If you would like to participate in loving your neighbor, please reach out to your Neighborhood Chaplain.  If you have a need or know someone who does, please communicate that with them.

*neighborhoods are being added as we have willing leaders.  If you don’t see your neighborhood listed and would like to help, please contact christine@redemptionchurch.org
