Why and How Congregations Need to Build a Military Ministry
Why military ministries are important for the military-connected population and how equipped volunteers can offer practical support and promote spiritual resiliency. This community outreach is a win-win.
Retired LtCol Kathy Lowrey Gallowitz is a career Air Force Veteran who served as a Public Affairs Officer and Nurse.
It was her life’s calling to design and lead a never-been-done-before outreach office (in response to 9/11) for the Ohio National Guard to educate and engage civilians in support of troops and their families.
Now, as the owner of Vanguard Veteran, she equips civilians to become Veteran Champions. She coaches volunteers to create “Military Ministries” (in partnership with clergy) to foster connection and a sense of belonging and promote spiritual resiliency.
Master’s degrees in Nursing and Political Science frame her practice and perspectives.
Her husband, Ed is a retired active duty Soldier with four combat tours. Together they have six sons, one daughter, and three grandchildren.
