summersChaplain (Lieutenant Colonel) Michael Waymon Summers, M.Th. ’82, has been an army chaplain for more than 20 years. He has served in Germany, Croatia, Afghanistan, and several US Army Posts. In mid-July, the Adjutant General of Georgia appointed Summers the Joint Forces Headquarters (State) Chaplain for the Georgia Department of Defense. This means that he is the supervising chaplain for the Georgia Air and Army National Guard.

“I did not plan to be a military chaplain, but the degree here prepared and qualified me. I could not have been a military chaplain without the preparation I received at HST. Particularly, the rigorous training in research in Biblical studies and the equipping in counseling helped prepare me for specific tasks I have encountered.” – Michael Waymon Summers

Summers is also providing a Call for Fire seminar for churches about learning to pray from the prayers of the Bible.

Summers is married to Morrisa Watson Summers, who is a current student at HST.
