Ch Maj Rochelle D. Coles - Squadron Chaplain
Welcome to the Chaplain Corner of the Jack Schweiker Composite Squadron NJ-059, New Jersey Wing, Civil Air Patrol.
My name is Chaplain (Major) Rochelle Coles, I became the primary Chaplain of the Jack Schweiker Composite Squadron in July 2020. I have been a member of the Civil Air Patrol since I joined as a Chaplain in 2018. Over the last 2 years, I have had the pleasure of supporting CAP as a Chaplain to several units in South Jersey, even if just visiting. I have also trained to complete several CAP courses, to include one Chaplain Corp Region Staff College and am serving as a Mission Chaplain (Trainee). As a retired United States Air Force Chaplain (Capt) I have had the pleasure to serve our great country and support my fellow Airman around the world, and now I am looking forward to what comes next in CAP.
As the Squadron Chaplain, I serve as a member of the Commander's staff, and as such is the advisor to the Commander and his staff on matters of religion, morals, and the well-being of personnel under his command. I support the entire Squadron Chaplain Corp to include all Chaplains assigned to the unit and Character Development Instructors. We can also be called upon for the following support:
As the Squadron Chaplain, my priority is to continue the strong legacy our squadron has had in the past, and will keep our Squadron on a path of growth and continued success.
I encourage you to visit our meetings, find out what we're about and see if it's a good fit for your aspirations to be more and do more!
