NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Former Mt. Pleasant police chief Harry Sewell has resigned from the Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy, just months after being named Deputy Senior Chaplain.

Chaplain Reverend Rob Dewey confirmed Sewell resigned last Friday, telling him, "The ministry wasn't what he thought it would be."

Dewey said his volunteer chaplains will take more calls in the wake of Sewell's resignation.

Sewell's tenure at the chaplaincy began on Jan. 1.  He took over for Eddie Driggers, who is now North Charleston police chief.

Sewell became Chief of Police in Mt. Pleasant in 2007, following a 3-year span of periodic service as Acting Chief beginning in September 2004.

Sewell stated that after serving as Mt. Pleasant Police Chief for five years, he desired "to serve [his] Lord, Jesus Christ."
