Mrs. Kermit Johnson, widow of our 15th Chief of Chaplains, would like to be in touch with Ch Ed Christolph, if he is still living. Ed was a close friend of Chaplain Johnson’s. I am trying to help her with this search. Any information about Ch Christolph would be appreciated. John Brinsfield

I retired as State Chaplain for the Oklahoma National Guard in 2007 with over 32 years of active and guard service. Two years later I retired as Executive Director of the Council of Churches of the Ozarks based in Springfield, Missouri. This past April Julie and I returned to Oklahoma. We are now members of the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) where Julie loves singing in the choir. She also sings in the Oklahoma City Chorus. I continue to work as a volunteer with the Moral Injury Institute. MII serves veterans, law enforcement, first responders, and others suffering from trauma-related moral injury. Check us out on FaceBook. I also do some pulpit supply. I am enjoying wildlife photography.

Ministry Report
While I remain the Clinical Chaplain for the Charlotte VA Health Care Center, I have transitioned to the Hospice & Palliative Care Chaplain position at the Liberty Lane Hospice, on the Salisbury VA Medical Center campus. One of my goals is development of an enhanced Bereavement Program. We have reestablished quarterly Hospice Memorial Services. We have conducted three so far and they have been well attended and well supported by the Medical Center Administration. We hope to soon institute 13-months of Bereavement Newsletters and Bereavement Support Groups for the family and friends of our deceased Hospice Veterans.

Ministry Report
After my Army retirement in 2004, we moved to the tiny, rural community of Absarokee, MT. I started a small non-profit Pastoral Counseling office and also worked as a hospital Chaplain.

October 2013 brought a disrupting but unsurprising diagnosis of lung cancer (it had killed my only sibling and one parent). September 2014 brought progression and Stage IV. The past 6 years have been quite and adventure… still trying to work some, going through a police academy to become a Reserve Deputy and then volunteering 1 or 2 day/nights per week, numerous surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy and other treatments.

I have now become the first Chaplain for our Sheriff’s Office. I still work a couple of days a week at the hospital, even while getting an infusion every 3 weeks. Our Father has been so good to me. The meds I’m on now were a “Hail Mary pass” that wasn’t expected to work, but has for the past two years. We are thankful for every single day I get with my wife and family.

Ministry Report
Following retirement as an Army Chaplain in 1984, I served in the Oklahoma State Prison System as a chaplain, and then after another retirement, served as a volunteer chaplain until 2015. Moved from Atoka, Oklahoma, in 2017, to Sanford, NC, to be closer to family in old age. Joined Cool Springs Baptist Church where I sing in the choir and teach Sunday School. I also sing in a community choir that ministers to local health/retirement facilities.
