Tim Raymond, pastor of Trinity Baptist Church, Muncie, Indiana, was commissioned a lieutenant in the United States Navy Reserve in a ceremony Nov. 1.

Tim and his wife, Bethany, have been involved in ministry for 18 years. He is a graduate of Baptist Bible Seminary.

“Our men and women serving in uniform, now more than ever, need Christ-centered comfort, counsel, and care,” says Manning Brown, director and endorser of Regular Baptist Chaplaincy.

“Tim’s ministry as a chaplain will have a far-reaching impact on the morale, resilience, and readiness of our nation’s seamen. Our association continues to yield the highest caliber of men and women called to serve in the chaplaincy ministry.”
