New Interim Chaplain

Dear RJM Volunteers,

I wish to inform you that Mr. Dan Warden is no longer with RJM as Chaplain at Brazos County Detention Center (BCDC), effective March 3, 2015. Chaplain Dan served the inmates of the BCDC in faithful ministry for many years. We thank him for his service and contributions to this vital and growing ministry.

The RJM Board wishes Mr. Warden the best in the years to come and feels our parting was in brotherly love and in keeping with our Christian faith.

Pastor Obed Matus is the Interim Chaplain and will continue in the position until a permanent chaplain is selected in the next few months. He is doing a wonderful job. If you see Pastor Obed in the halls or with the inmates, please take the time to introduce yourself and get acquainted.

At present, a revised job description is being prepared for the permanent Chaplain position. When the recruitment begins, you will be informed and encouraged to let others know of this ministry opportunity.

The Board thanks each of you for your continued service and ministry to the Lord in the Brazos County Detention Center and the message of Christian love, hope and life you provide to the “least of these.” Mt. 25:34-40.

God Bless you and your work.

In His Name.

Doug Ralston, Acting Chair
Restorative Justice Ministry Board
