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 we donate 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

When the going gets tough the tough get going!

I’ve heard this statement for a long time just like most of you. We all encounter difficult events, relationships and expectations. We are trained to care for all of these and our First Responders are excellent when they arrive to provide service and support for everyone – until it is personnel! We struggle with the personnel stuff even though we are challenged and try to make it look like we are good – we are FINE!

We could gain some understanding and strategy by observing the conduct and behavior of someone who made the ultimate sacrifice for us all. When He was falsely accused and beaten within an inch of His life – He was stripped of His possessions and His positions, His Dignity and His Integrity some thought. In the humility of the moment He carried the weight of the world on His shoulders. He stayed on task, focused on the objective not the obstacles. He did not get caught up in the moment but focused on the Future. On the third Day He got going. He Rose above the Obstacles, Accusations and the Tragedy of Death. The personal attack did not discourage Him or cause Him to quit. He became the vehicle for His deliverance and victory over all the yuk. As a Christian my Faith is stirred whenever I think of Jesus because by His Strips we are healed. His Actions and Activity are celebrated for those of the Christian Faith during this month ahead. No other Name has meant so much to me.

I will say again how very honored we as chaplains are to walk with our guys and gals in uniform. They are professional and follow through with their responsibilities in the midst of allegations and junk. We Love and Appreciate you a Bunch.

Our Chaplains send you greetings and encourage all to celebrate the gift of Love given to us on Easter. Blessings – p.j.
