The Central Oregon Police Chaplaincy is a Biblically-based, non-profit ministry that exists to serve and support all law enforcement and emergency services personnel and their families within Central Oregon.

It is our goal to provide Christ centered service and ministry to members of all faiths while fulfilling our purpose and to provide a ministry of presence, relationship, support and counsel to the Central Oregon Law Enforcement and Emergency Services Personnel and their families; influencing them with God’s grace and love.

It is our mission to care for the troubled and those who have endured loss, been victimized by events and tragedy that have left them abandoned, helpless and without hope, while in contact with the community. We provide professional training for our chaplains and consistent care and counseling for those we serve.

Welcome to COPC

I'd like to welcome you to the COPC website.  We're very privileged to have a number of highly qualified and effective chaplains who serve the First Responders in Central Oregon.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about COPC or chaplaincy.

Notes from Chaplain Jim

Annual Training Seminar
Greetings - My wife and I have just returned from attending the ICPC - International Conference of Police Chaplains - ATS - Annual Training Seminars in Columbia, South Carolina. It was well attended with over 400 in attendance.
Our chaplaincy was awarded two Presidential Coins in gratitude for the work that was accomplished to assist ICPC with their website over the past few years. We as well received a citation of appreciation for the work that has been accomplished for our Regional Leadership. It was an awesome time of learning and instructing as we attended classes and taught classes.
I listened at the awards ceremony to hear the name of Chaplain David Kell being read to receive his Masters Credential - Wow, what an achievement. We received as well a letter that Chaplain Kell was in fact the recipient of his Masters Credential. We are very proud of Chaplain David Kell and his recent accomplishment.
Having hung around a large group of chaplains and having the honor to provide instruction during the ATS I am very pleased to rub shoulders with some of the finest and best trained chaplains right here in Central Oregon with COPC. We have a high Standard of Training and qualification for First Responder Chaplaincy, Our Work Ethic has a High Standard and our Leadership expectations are equal to anywhere in any part of the country.
We have recently added a Part Time Staff position in Chaplain Brian Ely. Chaplain Ely will continue our heritage of providing the best chaplains for the best First Responders in Central Oregon.
We have a great team of chaplains. I want to thank our chaplains and our COPC family for your support and service. Please continue to pray and support us as we serve and support the First Responders of Central Oregon!
In His Service - pj
