The Eagle Commission was formed to serve as a strategic link between the people of our Grace Brethren Churches and our military chaplains around the world. The Eagle Commission offers the means to express our support of our chaplains and their ministry and to keep updated on their latest news and prayer requests.
Learn about each of our military chaplains and their families. Encourage them through your letters or email. Find out what’s happening in their ministries to our military men and women at home and abroad. Let them know you’re praying for them!
Dear Eagle Commission Family, Once again we want to express our appreciation for the love and support shown to us year-round as well as at the annual “family reunion”. Your prayers, e-mails, phone calls and cards serve as a reminder that we are in this together. In particular, thank you for the generous gift card given to the chaplain spouses; it represents your hand on our shoulder and by extension, God’s love. – Robin Penfold, chaplain’s wife
While serving at an outpost in Afghanistan, I experienced a very close call with a 4-inch piece of shrapnel. It fell straight down from the sky, ripping my blouse, grazing the center of my back and knocking me to the ground.
…for all of us. – Chaplain Pete Stone
