Joplin chaplain recognized for helping people heal

When there is a death or tragedy in Joplin, police and firefighters are not the only ones on the scene. Members of Joplin’s Chaplain Program are usually among the first to respond, seeking to help soothe the grief and sort out the stress that can affect both victim and emergency services workers. There are four in Joplin’s chaplain corps and the longest serving of those is Tim Sumners, pastor of the Eastvue Baptist Church, 2802 New Hampshire Ave.
