A Life of Service
Chaplain William “Bill” Glennie wears a badge and has answered the call for assistance his entire life. He has served as a back-up deputy and as the Chaplain Director for the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and US Marshall’s Service in Arizona. He was on the ground for two weeks during 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina offering support, prayer and comfort to the men and women serving there and to those affected by these tragedies. As with other first responders at the World Trade Center his health has suffered from exposure, but he would respond again today if called.
In addition, Bill is the Arizona State Director of Suicide Prevention and has taught extensively about suicide prevention in the law enforcement community. He states, “We lose more officers to suicide than on the job.” He personally has been involved in preventing three suicides.
Bill is the founder of Chaplain Services, established to train law enforcement and fire department members in chaplaincy. Through Chaplin Services, he has trained 132 chaplains to date and ministered to over six thousand individuals. He credits his work through the support of Partners in Action, his wife Nadean, and God’s continuous grace in his life.
Your donation to Partners in Action provides the means to continue offering courses and training to these Chaplains who serve our State and our Nation.
