How one pastor, church serve those who serve, protect

LAKESIDE, Ariz. (BP) -- Facing shootings, domestic violence, car accidents, drownings and more, police officers and first responders experience gruesome things on a daily basis. It can be difficult for first responders to process what they experience in healthy ways. As a chaplain, Jim Stansberry, pastor of Porter Mountain Fellowship in Lakeside, Ariz., ministers to police officers, firefighters and other public servants. But he's quick to point out he couldn't do it without his church's help. When asked how he can both effectively pastor a church and minister to the law enforcement community, Stansberry said, "There's no way I could do this on my own. The church family at Porter Mountain supports me fully."
