Chaplain Award



Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty is an organization of chaplain endorsers, those who provide chaplains to the Department of Defense and Veterans Administration hospitals.  We formed in 2011 to protect the right of all service members to live out their faith while defending our nation.  Our organization represents more than 50% of all chaplains currently serving.

Each year we recognize a leader who has held high the torch of religious liberty.  This year we gave the award to Rep Collins.  We normally hold these events in DC, but because of COVID, we held the event here in Gainesville.

Chaplain Alliance Presents Torchbearer Award to
U.S. Representative Doug Collins, R-GA

Gainesville, GA— Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty is pleased to present our Torchbearer Award to Representative Doug Collins, R-GA.  The award is given to those who have lifted high the torch of religious liberty to ensure that members of our armed services remain free to worship according to the dictates of their consciences.

Retired Navy Chaplain and President of Chaplain Alliance, CAPT Craig Muehler, who also serves as endorser for The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, said, “Representative Collins has been a stalwart defender of religious liberty, often working behind the scenes, to ensure military members may worship God freely.”

Chaplain (COL) Ron Crews, Executive Director of Chaplain Alliance said, “Representative Collins happens to be my personal Representative, so it is a great pleasure to present this award to him here in his hometown.  Representative Collins has never refused a call for help when religious liberty has been threatened.”

Special guest for the event was Mike Berry, General Counsel for First Liberty Institute. He stated, “Representative Collins has committed his life to the cause of religious freedom for our military, first as a chaplain, and then as a Member of Congress. He personifies the kind of tireless warrior who is deserving of the Torchbearer Award.”

At the presentation at a local restaurant in Gainesville, Georgia, Representative Collins said, “It is an incredible honor to be presented with the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty’s Torchbearer Award.  As a pastor and an Air Force chaplain, I will always fight to protect each and every Americans’ right to freely exercise their religion.”

Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty is an organization of chaplain endorsers, the faith groups that provide chaplains for the U.S. military and other agencies needing chaplains. The endorsers in the Chaplain Alliance speak for more than 2,600 chaplains serving the armed forces.
