Madison County Alabama Detention Facility Chaplains

Galatians 6:4- You should each judge your own conduct. If it is good, then you can be proud of what you yourself have done, without having to compare it with what someone else has done.

The Madison County Detention Facility Chaplain's Corps,. program is not like other jail chaplaincy programs as these chaplains volunteer to work with the staff, not the inmates. There are local churches and ministries that work with the inmates. The facility houses up to 1220 inmates with a staff of 215. The officers work the floors and tiers of the jail on 12 hour tours of duty. Their interaction with inmates working 12 hours shifts is mentally demanding, traumatic and often causes the staff to experience a lot of stress showing PTSD type symptoms. As a counter balance to this serious situation, the leadership of the jail realized a need to have Chaplains available with corrections training to work with the their officers and families when needed. There are 10 chaplains at this time, more will be added as needed. Chaplain Reggie Whiddon the third from the left front row is the lead chaplain who worked with Chaplain Gibson setting this program up. Chaplain Whiddon is a wonderful man that has a beautiful heart for helping others. All these chaplains are members endorsed by Chaplain Fellowship Ministries.

The Program has been in affect for two years now, this Vido is Evidence of it's Success


These chaplains are required to complete in house training being assigned to work side by side with jail oficers, this helps build trust and sound relationships with the officers and their families. They are also on call twenty four hours a day when needed. Chaplains must have a sound foundation in biblical teaching. They are also trained in CISM, CISD and crisis intervention. Chaplain Fellowship and all our members are very happy and blessed to have these dedicated chaplains on our team.
