Office Press Release

LINCOLNTON, N.C. – Lincoln County Sheriff Bill Beam has appointed Detective Greg Hager as Chaplain for the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

Hager, who is pastor of Community Baptist Church in Dallas, N.C., was chosen for the position because of his involvement in the community. The position will be an active position and important for the men and women of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

Detective Hager said, “I began service in law enforcement in 1994 and served until 2000. During that time, I realized that I was called to serve in pastoral ministry. My wife Kelly and I operated a small family business and I began seminary at Liberty University, eventually earning a Master of Divinity degree in 2006”.

In late 2001 Hager was ordained by his home church, Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Alexis, N.C., and left there to serve in full time pastoral ministry until 2011. In 2012 he returned to law enforcement when he came to work for the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office full time and continued to fill in as needed at various churches. In August of 2017 he was asked to serve as the bi-vocational pastor of Community Baptist Church in Dallas, N.C.

Deputies have to be physically fit for the job and their heart and mind also need to be in the game. The chaplain’s role will be to protect our staff. Deputies face different scenarios during a shift from an extremely serious incident down to a minor situation. The chaplain can be available to deputies to talk and deal with those situations.
