One of the greatest blessings for me, Jonathan, in law enforcement ministry has been my membership in and partnership with the Fellowship of Christian Peace Officers. There is no substitute for the mentoring and Christian fellowship that comes from this incredible group. I am always encouraged to see what God is doing in ministry to law enforcement throughout the country, as well as all of the great events that regularly take place.
I thought I would share with our readers one of the latest email newsletters in case you don’t already receive it. If you are not an active or retired law enforcement officer, dispatcher, or other first responder, thank you for your support, encouragement, and ongoing prayer for all of us – and especially the Covered Law Enforcement ministry!
We’d like to take a moment to share with you what God is doing through one of our FCPO members in Seattle. There are also several upcoming events and updates that you should know about. Don’t forget to visit the FCPO website often for the latest news, events, and updates.
Beds for Kids Project in Seattle
Police officers are ambassadors for Christ sent into the highways and hedges with the opportunity to impact lives in unique ways. The Seattle Times recently reported on a not-so-conventional ministry outreach by two Seattle officers – one of whom is Jeremy Wade. Jeremy was recently featured in our article Seattle/NW Officers of Faith on the move for Christ.
Please take a moment to read the article Police fill a need with ‘Beds for Kids,’ other projects and celebrate what God is doing in the NW region. Good job Jeremy, and Praise the Lord!
Breaching the Barricade Conference & Officer Appreciation Day
Every October, Jim Bontrager and his team host an incredible weekend of ministry and family fun in Elkhart, IN. This year is no different, and we encourage you to attend if at all possible.
Celebrating the Life and Ministry of Rev. Lamar S. Moore
On Saturday, June 21, 2014, we celebrated the life and ministry of Rev. Lamar Stanley Moore (Executive Director of the FCPO). Throughout the service, several themes surfaced. Lamar loved and served Jesus Christ. Lamar loved and served his family. Lamar loved and served his church. Lamar loved and served the FCPO. Lamar loved and served everyone he encountered. Lamar loved and served. His life will be remembered, and his legacy will continue through all of the many lives he impacted.
Please continue to pray for Lamar’s wife Vickie, his children, grandchildren, and multitude of family and friends. Also pray for the FCPO that we will be faithful to Christ and the legacy Lamar leaves behind.
During the celebration of life service, the following tribute video was presented. We thought you would like to see it as well. View the Tribute to Rev. Lamar S. Moore.
