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.

COPC is a not for profit ministry that exists for the soul purpose of serving and supporting our First Responders, Law Enforcement, Fire, Medics, Dispatch - any calling that runs into what everyone else runs from! We serve our men and women with the focus to assist them and while we are doing that our chaplains serve and support the communities of Central Oregon gladly. We walk in the trench with our First Responders.

I am a Veteran and have served my country in a war that some reduced to a conflict.

It seems to me that it becomes real easy for folks to forget the price that is paid when our First Responders and Veterans try and do the right thing and stand in the gap for a member of the community who they don't even know.

I was sent a link to the background info for our National Anthem. I invite you to listen to the story and you won't ever listen to our National Anthem the same again. Pray for our First Responders and our Vets as they deserve this moment of prayer. It's the least we can do today!

Thank You for your Service and Support. First Responders we love you.

Thank You Vets and First Responders for your willingness to make things right and stand in the gap for the community.

Just A Chaplain

Notes from Chaplain Jim


Wow – here comes summer! Temperatures in Bend have risen dramatically and many of us are warming up – some are complaining already about the heat! It is pretty interesting how diverse we are when it comes to our Comfort Levels!!!

June is High School and College Graduations - Father’s Day and vacations. It is as well Kindergarten Graduation time – that’s right and don’t miss it either. We attended our last Kindergarten Graduation and were entertained beyond expectation. It was a real moment of transition for the upcoming citizens to be reckoned with and the future is really bright!

Following the many songs and tributes I believe that the highlight of the evening was watching my Granddaughter sing with her classmates a song that pretty much summed up their educational foundation for the Kindergarten year – two years of preschool and an unlimited influence of command presence she belted out the lyrics – I’m still trying to get them – to “Don’t Put Your Finger in Your Nose!” She had way too much fun while singing and demonstrating with in sync choreography the brutal reality of the message  - Don’t Put Your Finger in Your Nose! At Least one should not get caught with the activity or gesture.

You got to laugh! Humor has become one of the very best tools for Stress Management! With that said – our chaplains have worked hard this recent spring and with summer approaching I know I will need to spend some time with our chaplains and families laughing a little and relaxing – hopefully around the campfire singing – Don’t Put Your Finger in Your Nose! Have a Safe and Blessed Summer filled with laughter and activity. Restore, Recover, Renew and Refresh your Reserves.
Blessings - pj
