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

Don’t Throw Rocks!
I remember the mandate like it was yesterday. I would hear the proclamation from my Mom. In fact she would emphasize that nothing harder than a marshmallow can be thrown. I didn’t have any marshmallows!

I watched this past week as First Responders stood in harms way both Law Enforcement and Fire Department personnel stood their ground with bricks and cement chunks being thrown at them boards and materials that were on fire exploding at their feet. Our Fire personnel were dispatched to fight fires that were set by arsons with Law Enforcement protection they fought hard to serve and protect the community.

I am always amazed by the care that our First Responders have for the community. They literally run into what everyone else is running from. They go into harms way on a daily bases. Their responsibilities range from protecting and serving the child who has been sexually molested to a bicyclist that has a bungee cord locked up in their back wheel! They treat and transport while enduring the onslaught of rocks and words being thrown at them.

The month of May is set aside to pay tribute and support our Law Enforcement Members. Fire Fighters identify September. Due to the culture and present conditions COPC Chaplains would challenge all of us to say thank you and show appreciation for the sacrificial work, a service and protection rendered by our men and women in the Law Enforcement and the Fire community.
Don’t Throw Rocks!

Pray for our First Responders.

You are appreciated and respected. p.j.
