Meet the Chaplain
Pastor Tom Garasha has been serving as a law enforcement chaplain for the past 16 years. He worked extensively with the Phoenix Police Department for 14 years, and has most recently been working with the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office. Pastor Tom has dedicated over 1,000 hours as a volunteer chaplain, while also serving as lead pastor in a large church in Phoenix, and as an interim pastor in Prescott, AZ.
His passion and love for the police community has provided him many opportunities to encourage, counsel, and understand the challenges police officers encounter daily. Through his ministry, he has seen many officers re-dedicate their lives to Christ, while others have put their trust in Christ as their Savior for the very first time. In the twilight of his career, Pastor Tom has dedicated himself to the purpose of devoting all of his time to serving, counseling and loving the police.
