DHS Head Janet Napolitano, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant visit Calvary Chapel, say thanks for help during Isaac storm
A Calvary Chapel Affiliate in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi got quite a surprise recently…a visit from the Governor of the State…and from “Big Sis” Janet Napolitano herself.
According to a report by local tv station WLOX, Napolitano and Bryant made an appearance at a shelter hosted by Calvary Chapel Bay St. Louis and interim CC pastor Frank Griffin. This isn’t Griffin’s first Storm Rodeo…he helped rebuild CCBSL after Hurricane Katrina wiped it out in 2005.
This time around, Calvary Chapel hosted more of a Help Center for those affected by Isaac.
In a local tv interview, Pastor Griffin explains the role his CC played in helping area residents:
“People that you don’t know and they come walk alongside life with you, it brings hope to them,” Griffin said. “People aren’t as concerned about material possessions as they want someone to listen to, to talk to, to hear their hurts and pains and healing always comes when a brother or sister comes and puts their arm around each other.”

Ironically, accused child molester and child abuser Bob Grenier, Calvary Chapel Visalia Pastor in good standing with the Calvary Chapel Association and Chuck Smith, reportedly has Department of Homeland Security (DHS) clearances. PR visits and photo-ops for Isaac…check. Vetting, investigating and holding accountable those who represent the church and the government….not so much.
