Dodge County Sheriff’s Office Welcomes Five New Chaplains

(Juneau) The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office introduced five additions to their Chaplain Team this past week. The new chaplains include Dennis Groll who has experience with jail ministry bible studies out of Rock Bible Baptist Church in Theresa and has 30 years of bible study under his belt at the Dodge County Jail. Chaplain Justin Lopina is pastor at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Horicon and St. Matthew’s in Neosho. Chaplain Rom Pegram is pastor at Trinity United Methodist Church in Lomira. Chaplain Daniel Bohn is pastor at Zion Lutheran Church in Clyman and Chaplain David Philips is pastor at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Lebanon. Sheriff Dale Schmidt says the additional chaplains will help bolster the Dodge County’s Peer Support Program and help more law enforcement officers handle difficult situations. Schmidt says it will also allow them to expand their services and offer chaplain support for inmates. The new chaplains will work closely with Tim Bauer, who is the lead chaplain, to gain on the job experience. Schmidt says Bauer is invaluable to the sheriff’s office and the additional chaplains will assist him with the already great work he is doing.
