Our Chaplains
Chaplain Robin Drummond

Reserve Chaplain


God called me to serve Him almost four years ago after listening to a CD by Lt. Col. Tim Thompson, retired U.S.Army. I knew I would be able to do His will do to life experiences as my father; husband, brothers and sons are or were retired police officers. I love serving with Sierra Law Enforcement bringing comfort, understanding and information to those who are in need. Robin is an ordained minister and has responded faithfully to God’s call to serve Him by comforting those in need.

Ted is a native Californian. Born, grew-up, and raised his family in San Jose. Ted has been married to Carri Marfia for 36 years. We have four children and 14 grandchildren.

Chaplain Alan Kushner

Reserve Chaplain


Growing up in a Jewish home with all the accompanying cultural traditions, I found the Messiah, Jesus around the age of 32. I attended Christian churches and started in ministry at Beth Yeshua Messianic Congregation, I ministered there about 10 years. Serving as a Chaplain for law enforcement gives me a chance to get to know the officers which I find fulfilling, and I look forward to the ministry opportunities.
