The “Wayne Train” Isn’t Slowing Down!

Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Wayne Mack, who took office in March replacing retiring Judge Lanny Moriarty, did something unprecedented this week. Despite an already busy schedule, not to mention frequent unpredictable calls regarding fatalities, Judge Mack hosted two luncheons where he met with area pastors and assistant pastors to discuss his ideas and visions.
The county’s newest JP wants to create a chaplaincy program to assist the court system and law enforcement with grieving families who are dealing with unexpected deaths. As Justice of the Peace, Mack is responsible for conducting inquests on all the deaths in his jurisdiction, and has become more aware than ever of the devastating effects these events have on people. Many of those people don’t have a solid support system in the form of extended family or church family, or in some cases, even friends.

Judge Mack also wants to create a mentoring program to work with young people and help to encourage and steer them in the right direction. In his invitation letter, Mack told the pastors, “You believe as I do, when people are given hope there is nothing that can stand in the way of their success.”

“As servant leaders, I know you believe that we can make a. difference in the lives of young people, adults, and families in our community. By cooperating together, we can transform our cities with hope when tragedy strikes. I would ask you to prayerfully consider being a member of Pastoral Counsel.”
The meetings, hosted by Conroe First Baptist Pastor Mark Denison and Pastor Brian Jenkins of Riverstone Community Church, were well attended and the message was well received. Over 50 churches have already committed to the program.
Following the events, Judge Mack said he was excited about moving forward his plans. He hopes the concept will catch on and eventually be countywide.
