We’d like to introduce the community to our new Interfaith Juvenile Chaplain, Rev. Julius Van Hook, now serving at the Martinez Juvenile Detention Center and the Orin Allen Boy’s Ranch in Byron.  Rev. Van Hook previously served as Supervising Chaplain at the Alameda County Probation Department.  Rev. Julius is ordained by the Church of God in Christ (COGIC), California Northwest Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction, at Genesis Worship Center, Oakland, CA where Rev. George Matthews is Pastor.

Rev. Julius started with the new year and will be attending Elected Council meetings and the MLK Day Service, where you can get to know him personally.  He will be available to speak at area congregations and groups about his ministry in a few months, after he has settled into his important work.  Let us welcome Rev. Julius Van Hook as our new county Interfaith Juvenile Chaplain serving the young people most in need of his ministry!
