Chaplain for Institutions
Ministry to people confined to various institutions has expanded since 1963 when The Pentecostal Assemblies of Newfoundland and Labrador appointed veteran pastor, Arthur S. Winsor, to the position of Chaplain for Institutions. In 1982, Pastor Graham E. Noble was appointed to succeed the retiring Winsor. Ten years later, Pastor Roy A. Burden succeeded Noble. Pastor Robert G. Parsons succeeded Burden.
On September 1st, 2011, Pastor Shawn Bowers began Chaplaincy ministry with the PAONL. Pastor Bowers is from a strong Pentecostal heritage, a graduate of Eastern Pentecostal Bible College (now Master’s College & Seminary) with a Bachelors Degree in Missions and a Masters Degree in Theology from Queen’s College. He has been involved in pastoral ministry since 1988. He is very passionate about chaplaincy work. His calling and vision is found in Matthew 25: 31-46 “doing ministry unto Jesus.” The Bowers family attend Bethesda Pentecostal Church.
