Trish Propson found her way to chaplaincy when she was trying to determine how to build a bridge between the deeply divided sacred and secular areas of her community. As she learned what chaplaincy is and what chaplaincy is not, she dove deeper into this unique area of helping people embrace wellness for mind, body, and spirit during times of crisis.
Trish currently serves as a law enforcement chaplain and has a certification in Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) debriefing. She is licensed and ordained through the International Fellowship of Chaplains (IFOC). She has also received advanced chaplaincy training and is affiliated with the International Conference of Police Chaplains (ICPC). Trish holds a certification in Biblical Counseling from the Biblical Counseling Institute of Southwestern Theological Seminary and a master’s degree in Pastoral Counseling with a cognate in Chaplaincy from Liberty University. She is a member in good standing of the American Association of Christian Counselors.
