AGTS Welcomes Paul
Martinez as New Development Director
Martinez is no stranger to AGTS. He graduated from the seminary with a Master of Divinity
degree in 1993 and is currently a Doctor of Ministry candidate. He was formerly a business
administrator and associate pastor at First Family Church, Albuquerque, N.M. from 1993-2000.
During the last year Martinez planted Southland Church in Tustin, Calif. where he discipled
and trained core members into leaders, cast visions and set goals, provided pastoral care,
and administrated church business including a church budget. His bachelors degree
was in Business Administration from the University of New Mexico. We welcome Martinez,
his wife Rhonda, and their two-year old son Max.
AG Commissions First
Married Couple as Chaplain Candidates
and Raylene Cochrane, M.Div. students from New Mexico, were commissioned as Navy Chaplain
Candidates during chapel on November 1, by AG Chaplaincy Department director, Chaplain
Charles Marvin. They are the first married couple to be commissioned as chaplains, either
military or institutional, in the churchs history and are only one of a very few
number of Armed Forces chaplain couples in the nation.
The military requires that chaplain candidates receive denominational endorsement
and be enrolled as a full-time student in a Master of Divinity program at an accredited
seminary such as AGTS. Prior to being accessed to active duty, candidates must complete
the Master of Divinity degree, be ordained, and meet pastoral requirements set by their
endorsing agent. Upon fulfilling these requirements, the Cochranes may each be ordered
to any number of Navy, Marine or Coast Guard commands. Military regulations, however,
will not permit a married couple to serve under the same commanding officer.
the same chapel service, Chaplain Marvin and Chaplain Worthley presented 23 Institutional/
Occupational and Military chaplaincy students with $2000 scholarships, awarded on a semester
basis, from the AG Chaplaincy Department. Chaplaincy students make up approximately ten
percent of the resident student body at AGTS. One-hundred and twelve AGTS graduates currently
serve in chaplaincy ministries including military, prison, hospital, rodeo, trucking,
police, fire and rescue, etc.
