Join Jeff Struecker, retired U.S. Army Chaplain and Ranger portrayed in the best-selling book and movie Black Hawk Down, as he explains the role of a chaplain and how you can minister to those around you.

Struecker draws from both the truth of Scripture and the reality of his experiences on the battlefield. He shows you how an incarnational ministry can start—even if you’re the only Christian around—and how it can be sustained.

He holds many awards and decorations for his military service, including the Bronze Star Medal with the “V” device for valor.
