Chaplains John Smith and John Prioleau were recognized as the Chaplains of the Year; they have served the Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy since close to its inception.
 
Just a few months ago, the Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy, founded by Reverend Rob Dewey, celebrated 25 years of service in the Lowcountry community, surrounded by loyal supporters, volunteers and the many individuals that have been touched by the organization’s ministry.

The Chaplaincy is a non-profit organization that provides care and counseling to First Responders and civilians both during and following times of crisis and tragedy (homicides, suicides, traffic fatalities, water fatalities, hostage situations, etc).

They serve over 30 First Responder agencies throughout the Lowcountry, providing a “calming, trusted ‘ministry of presence’ in times of need.” As a non-profit organization, they are dependent upon the generous donations of individuals and congregations.

The Chaplaincy’s 25th Anniversary Celebration was held on February 5, 2014 at the Charleston Marriott. The event was a huge success with over 450 people in attendance. The Business of the Year Award was presented to The Boeing Company for their continuous support of the Chaplaincy. Ms. Anita Zucker was presented with the J. V. Nichols Award in recognition of her ongoing loyalty to and backing of the Chaplaincy. Chaplains John Smith and John Prioleau were recognized as the Chaplains of the Year; they have served the Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy since close to its inception.

Proclamations recognizing the Chaplaincy for 25 years of service to the community were presented by the office of Senator Tim Scott, the office of Mayor Summey, (City of North Charleston), Mayor Page, (Town of Mt. Pleasant), and Herb Sass, (Charleston County Council). Thanks to everyone’s generosity, the Chaplaincy was able to raise nearly $30,000 while enjoying a wonderful night of fellowship and reflection. Their volunteers and staff are now eagerly looking ahead as they begin the next 25 years of ministry!
