>As the 21st century heirs to the circuit riders’ mantle, resort ministry chaplains likewise travel light and cover plenty of ground. But they make their journeys in air-conditioned vehicles and live in motor homes or trailers, moving from one RV park to another. Chaplains sometimes serve a particular location for up to six months before journeying to the next location, offering a seasonal ministry with eternal impact.

Chaplain Gordon Thomas and General Manager Dennis Maloney talk. Chaplains meet once a month for fellowship, sharing and support. Meetings are held in varied RV resorts so the host chaplain can share the resort with the chaplains and the visiting chaplains can see different resorts. (Photos by Robert Ruesch)

“I never thought I would be doing chaplain work,” said Ed Bevill of Kentucky, who serves as a chaplain for Winter Texans. “I came to Texas and this resort to retire and enjoy the winter weather of the Rio Grande Valley.”

Bevill lives in Palmdale RV Resort, between Harlingen and Brownsville, where he preaches. He also leads Sunday services at Holiday Out RV Resort, about 5 miles down the road.
