Chaplain Dr. Bill Potter retired from the chaplaincy at Delta Correctional Center July 31.
In his honor, Delta Correctional Center hosted a celebration luncheon for 70 staff and guests at the Chapel of Hope.
Out-of-town guests included Rev. Rick Sweeney, director of Good News Jail & Prison Ministries for the Rocky Mountain Region and Major Matt Winden, manager of Faith and Citizens Programs, Department of Corrections, Colorado Springs. Presentations were made by Rev. Sweeney, Major Matt Winden, Warden Steve Green, former Warden Bill Hickok, Chaplain Richard Jackman, Lt. Jim Sexton, Michele Murphy and Darryl Proffit.
Chaplain Potter and his wife Joan have left a legacy of over 30 years of service to the Department of Corrections in various capacities. They have been instrumental in changing the lives of innumerable offenders, as they return to society as law-abiding citizens. Dr. Potter and Joan plan to continue as volunteers at the Chapel of Hope.
Rev. Potter worked as a meat cutter for A&P Food Stores for 20 years. After a job injury, he began taking courses in hotel/motel management. Finally, God called him to a career in ministry, a calling that eventually brought him to Delta Correctional Center.blog comments powered by Disqus
