Chaplain: LT John Mabus

It is a great honor to serve as the Chaplain for Base Elizabeth City and Sector North Carolina. At Base Elizabeth City, we have a beautiful chapel called Wings of Faith Aviation Memorial Chapel. It was dedicated along with the memorial wall outside to be a continual tribute to those who have given their lives in service to our nation while serving in Coast Guard Aviation.

I invite you to join us on Sunday morning for worship, at one of our education programs or just to stop by for a quiet place for prayer, meditation or reflection. We have many religious books and resources also for your enrichment. I pray God’s rich blessing on you as you serve our nation with honor, respect and devotion to duty.

Community Enrichment Events:

Sector North Carolina Support:

It is a great joy to visit all of the Sector North Carolina commands throughout the state to provide chaplain support. When I visit, I look foward to getting to know each crew, understanding their mission and know how I can be of service to them and their families.

Religious Resources: At each Sector command, I hope to provide needed religious resources like Scriptures, devotional books, and other religious books. If there are specific needs that you want, please contact the Chaplain.

Lay Leaders Program: Commands can appoint authorized personnel as lay leaders on the basis of volunteerism, high moral character, motiviation, religious interest, and certification by the appointee's religious organization.

CREDO Retreat Programs:

CREDO Norfolk and Camp Lejeune, conduct a variety of retreats and workshops. This includes Personal Growth, Marriage, and Family Enrichment Retreats, a two-day “Personal Growth Workshop,” Divorce Recovery retreats, Women’s retreats, and Men’s Retreats at various locations around the Hampton Roads and Jacksonville/Wilmington areas. All CREDO retreats are open to all active duty military and their immediate family members and members of reserve components in an active duty status and their immediate family members. Please contact CREDO for additional information on family member age requirements for the different retreats. Participants are responsible for their own child care arrangements.
All CREDO retreats are free, including meals and lodging. Registration is required. Due to high demand, registration for the marriage retreat opens 60 days prior to the first day of the retreat. On the day of the retreat, active-duty and reserve personnel E-5 and below must present no-cost TAD orders, a special request chit, or leave authorization covering the retreat period. Transportation is provided to some retreats but varies with the type and location of the retreat.
While CREDO programs are distinctly but not solely spiritual, looking beyond behaviors to affirm each person as a unique creation of God with value and significance, our goal is to build trust and facilitate an experience of unconditional acceptance. Each retreat offers an environment that invites reflection but does not attempt to “fix” people, define their religious or spiritual experience, or force them to work on issues.
For more information about any of these programs, please call
