About My Family

This Florida native has been married to Robin Parker since 1985 and has taught music/band in Seminole County Public Schools for 21 years.

I served in full-time ministry for 20 years at Aloma Church as the music minister, worship pastor and associate pastor before retiring and beginning my third career as a clinical chaplain after completing four units of clinical pastoral education (one at Emory University Health and three at Advent Health in Orlando). I received board certification in December of 2019 from the Association of Certified Christian Chaplains.

About My Ministry

I currently serve as a clinical chaplain at Orlando Health Orlando Regional Medical Center in Orlando, Fla.

SBC Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy is a vital frontline ministry and extension of the local church. Chaplains reach the lost among the thousands of men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces, correctional facilities, healthcare settings, public safety, disaster relief sites and corporate environments. SBC Chaplains care for the broken, offer hope to the hopeless and advance the gospel of Jesus Christ in hard to reach places.
The qualifications expected of a Southern Baptist applying for endorsement as a chaplain or counselor are established by the using agency and the Chaplains Commission, SBC. These qualification requirements vary according to the type of chaplaincy or counseling ministry involved but all are expected to meet a high level of ministerial competence.


Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy. Pray for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts among the people to whom I minister. Pray for people to come to saving faith in Jesus. Pray for more to become missionaries and chaplains.


Commit to long-term prayer support. Explore the opportunities to extend the reach of your church by becoming a chaplain. Be involved in supporting chaplains and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Talk with a chaplain about his or her ministry context. Send resources that support a chaplain's ministry context. Pray for chaplains and their families.
Learn the ministry strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a missionary financially.
