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

Getting through the YUK!
One of my favorite movies of all times is Jeremiah Johnson - think I'll watch it again. There are some things that I don't agree with but the overall message about surviving as a mountain man in the movie takes me away - there are a lot of things that happen in life that catch one off guard - surprises. How do you get through that stuff without getting it on you!? In the movie many one liners - "March is the muddy month!"  New Testament days they were working the ground for their crops manually - very manually - womanly too! When they would hit a hard spot what did they do? "Or is He speaking altogether for our sake? Yes, for our sake it was written, because the plowman ought to plow in hope, and the thresher to thresh in hope of sharing the crops." 1 Corinthians 9:10 (NASB) They would remember the Why for the activity. I've asked myself countless times over the years sometimes while I was in the Mud, "Why?" When the event or the stresses in life begin to settle down and some kind of normal kicks in the answer settles to the surface of the Yuk - "to share some Hope." I was reminded again this last week while at some training of the Hope that COPC gives our First Responders. When we least expect that we are accomplishing anything a parent will say thanks for helping us through the yuk - fire fighter, dispatcher or LE officer will help remind our chaplains - Thanks for Sharing the Hope. First Responders - thanks for the Honor to walk with you and Model the Hope! You Are Appreciated - pj
