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.

Notes from Chaplain Jim

Calming Down!

Someone sent me this not to long ago - “If Someone Tells me to take it down a notch that guarantees a 4 to 5 notch increase – they went on to say, Don’t Try and De-notch Me!”

Well, I’ve been waiting for summer to come since it ended last year – it’s coming – it’s here – I’m excited to enjoy time with my family and friends recreating and relaxing.

I can hear someone saying – “Just Calm Down!” Sometimes when I hear Calm Down it makes everything get ramped up. The expression has many different applications and with the support of a few authors that have studied the statement they seem to rotate toward discovering a better way to get someone to Calm Down than to blast them with the message – Calm Down!

I ‘m still learning a lot about life but recently I had the opportunity to use some skills with a very ramped up and upset individual and simply told them to Breath with me! I took a deep breath and they as well and excelled – there’s a lot more to the breathing exercise but the just is to quietly breath in through your nose and excel through your mouth. Folks that were trying to help were telling them to Calm Down – it wasn’t effective.

So – breathe and then get excited about summer! It helps to be Still and Know -  Psalm 46:10

You Are Loved – pj
