Chaplain Elwood Hale has faithfully encouraged men to grow in their faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ for many decades. We hope his Counseling Manual and instructions on Communicating Biblically will be a blessing for you, along with his other materials provided under
'Topical Biblical Studies' on this same page.
Chaplains Corner Messages
Rich creates and distributes a monthly message to correctional chaplains and gospel volunteers. Over 130 of these messages are available here. We trust these messages will be a blessing and encouragement to you, and provide you with key insights from Scripture, as well as Rich's years of experience as a minister to the incarcerated.
