Crisis Chaplain

...unbeknownst to Corey, he had led me to renew my walk with Christ. Corey’s friendship, leadership, mentorship, fellowship…. continue to be unsurmountable reminders that our purpose is to serve God and to live in the image of his son, Jesus Christ. We have chatted and discussed at length, on multiple occasions, the complexities of society and life, struggles, obstacles, and having the perseverance to overcome them as a disciple. These conversations were not only about the youth in our care but of ourselves as well. -Clinton

Who I am

I was born in Milwaukee Wisconsin but was raised in the North woods in the Crivitz and Coleman area. That is where my love for hunting and fishing and the outdoors was born. An ideal day for me is on the water in my kayak, fishing, or in the woods where I can hang my hammock and build a fire.

After graduating from high school I entered the United States Marine Corps as a Combat Engineer. I was able to travel the world and view different cultures first hand. It was a privilege to be stationed and live on the island of Okinawa, Japan for two years and engage in the culture through martial arts.

Soon after discharge from the Marine Corps I returned stateside to my hometown of Coleman, Wisconsin and built my house and married my love of today, Jodi Klepp. After 23 years, three amazing children and two grandsons, my desire to work with children without a forever home, alongside foster and foster to adopt families are as strong as ever.

I have been working with teens and parents for 25 years. The first 10 years part-time and the last 15 years full-time in some capacity. I also have the honor of being an ordained pastor and life coach in this crazy awesome organization that God allowed my wife and I to be founders of.

Why a Crisis Chaplain


In the Marine Corps when we said, “I got your six”, it means “I have your back.”

That is my commitment to you as a Crisis Chaplain. I got your back!

I might not have all of the answers, but I promise you with God by our side, I got your six through the storm!

‭‭God doesn’t always promise he will take us out of the storm that we’re going through. But he does promise that he will walk alongside us through that storm. GOD HAS OUR SIX!

Deuteronomy 31:8 The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”


In my 25 years working with teens, parents, and families there is one thing I have done the most consistently and that is sitting across from individuals that are walking through storms in their lives.

It is an honor to walk alongside you as we both work to use God's Word as a blueprint to start your journey to improve your identity in Christ.

When everything feels like it is crashing around you, just remember,
