This month we will have a guest speaker - Greg Gitschier - otherwise known as the Sneakin' Deacon. He has worn many hats - here is a small description of his experiences: Cop, Secret Service agent, private consultant, and bodyguard … Greg Gitschier has led an exciting life. He's protected presidents and royalty, tracked down international criminals, and cracked tough cases. An assignment to protect Pope John Paul II forever changed Greg's life, leading him down a path toward "sacred service." He now serves as a deacon in the Catholic Church, a police chaplain, and Secret Service chaplain. Sneakin' Deacon shares the raw, the routine, the gritty, and the grand moments of a life in both Secret Service and sacred service.
In Greg Gitschier's 11 years as a cop, he worked undercover, caught bad guys, and joined car chases and shootouts. But the excitement ratcheted up when Gitschier launched his 20-year career with the Secret Service. He broke up international counterfeiting rings, arrested a notorious diamond thief, survived heart-pounding moments in the Middle East and Africa, and protected presidents, royalty, and celebrities.
Gitschier's assignment to protect Pope John Paul II during the pontiff's 1999 visit to the United States forever changed his life. Gitschier stepped up his involvement in his church and eventually became a Catholic deacon, a police chaplain, and a chaplain for the US Secret Service. He continues to work as a private security consultant and bodyguard for high-profile clients.
He will be speaking to the ladies about the importance of his training in various situations that he has been in and get some lessons to be our own first responders!
