DEFENDERS! Welcome to the 20th CBRNE Command in Aberdeen Proving Ground, Edgewood Campus. Our Unit Ministry Teams are here to serve you and you’re Families. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we want to encourage and enable your progress. Our Unit Ministry Teams, in concert with the Garrison Religious Support Office, provide multi-faceted religious support to meet your spiritual and religious needs. Together, we strive to provide vibrant worship services, transformative religious education, and excellent resiliency classes. If you are looking for a particular faith group or spiritual practice, our chaplains are ready and able to provide information about our ministry opportunities, on and off post. Sometimes life gets challenging and you need a safe place to go for a listening ear. Chaplains provide counseling with absolute confidentiality enabling you to manage job stress, relationship issues, parenting issues, or other concerns. They also assist with questions about religious or spiritual practices. Each of our Battalion Unit Ministry Teams offer a variety of opportunities to strengthen your relationship or marriage, and help you grow in your spiritual journey. Get to know your Unit Ministry Team and experience new levels of personal growth while assigned here to APG. May God richly bless you during your time in Maryland.
