COPC NAME CHANGE

On March 9th, 2017 the COPC Board of Directors voted to change the name of Central Oregon Police Chaplaincy to Central Oregon Public Safety Chaplaincy. This name change better reflects the mission of COPC: "Serving the Hearts and Minds of Central Oregon’s First Responders". Central Oregon Public Safety Chaplains serve the Law Enforcement, Fire & Rescue, EMS, Search & Rescue, and Dispatch Centers of Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson Counties!

The Central Oregon Public Safety 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.

Link To Our National Anthem

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

Adjusting to Anxiety!

Having returned from the Beautiful state of Utah and 4 National Parks with two state parks visited in 114 degree weather a day or two - I sure like living in Central Oregon! While Brenda and I were away we adjusted to anxiety! I won’t illustrate this because it will make me anxious thinking about it. “Half of the battle of anxiety is realizing when you’re entering the battle!” Brittany Moses writes in her devotional - The Seven Day Anxiety Detox. She also identified a phrase that has stuck with me - Metacognition - means you have the ability to think about your thoughts. Some of our thoughts may not always be the best thoughts - this could evolve into what I have identified as stinking-thinking! Staying healthy in our heart and mind will help us to adjust to anxiety. Having a consistent moral Compass will help us with discovering. This begs the question for a source to provide consistent influence in the adjustment. One of our many qualified chaplains can assist with helping to find that source. I’m simply trying to adjust to being on vacation!
Blessings and Stay Safe!
Padre
