Great Basin Chaplain Corps.
The Great Basin Chaplain Corps is comprised of all different kinds of chaplains from a variety of spiritual backgrounds and personal beliefs. This team is an affiliation of the International Fellowship of Chaplains (I.F.O.C.) which regularly meets to serve and train. Our goal is to provide practical community support to emergency service workers, those in crisis, secular society and those persons in transition by meeting their needs. Trained and licensed chaplains provide counsel, education, advocacy, life improvement skills and recovery training, providing a bridge between the secular and spiritual environments of community life.
Experienced in supporting those exposed to traumatic incidents, experiencing bereavement, in need of memorial planning, and end of life comfort care.
Corps Training Officer
My name is Chaz Blackburn and I am a Crisis Response Chaplain. I respond to anyone in the community who may need support or who may be in crisis. I proudly serve everyone ranging from our First Responders and their Families, to serving our vulnerable/displaced population through our local homeless shelters and community outreach. A passion for those who are broken hearted and crushed in spirit. I'm an Ordained Senior Chaplain who is licensed and insured through the IFOC. I 'm extremely honored to serve on the Command Staff and Board of The Great Basin Chaplain Corps as the Corps Training Officer. I'm also a full-time Spiritual Care Chaplain with Circle of Life Community Hospice. I humbly care for our Patients, Caregivers, Families and Staff. In addition, I'm proudly a team member of our Pediatrics Hospice Program. Beyond that I also officiate funerals and memorials, facilitate community bereavement support groups, and partner with local organizations ranging from human trafficking to involvement with unexpected deaths. Lastly, I also participate in regional preparedness exercises with local municipalities to ensure I can respond/deploy should the need arise during any large scale crisis situations. Chaplaincy is not my job, it is my God given calling. It is something I live every day 24/7. If I can be of assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out.
