The mission of Eagle Commission is to provide support to active-duty members of the Armed Forces and military veterans. Their primary focus is to live and speak the Gospel through every venue the DoD allows. They serve wherever U.S. military live or are deployed, both in the U.S., at sea, around the world, and in places you only read about in history or watch on the news. Some of their ministries include providing chapel services and Bible studies on military installations, field services when soldiers and marines are training, and shipboard services for sailors who are underway, as well as anything else a pastor would normally do for his church.
Justin enjoys doing ministry via MV-22 Osprey, a.k.a. "Holy Helo", sailing the seven seas, and seeing crusty sailors and marines bend a knee to Jesus. His hobbies include tinkering on his junky car, taking naps, and taking day trips with his family to historical sites. Grace alum 2008.
