A few years back, a group of us established the Police Chaplain Project.

The idea was to seek out America’s police chaplains and share what they know.

To date…

…we have conducted more than 100 on-camera interviews with some of the most accomplished police chaplains of the past 50 years.

Why do are we doing this?

We believe…

  •  the wisdom a police chaplain accumulates over the course of their lifetime is meant to be shared
  • listening to police chaplains tell their stories makes us better aware of what police officers confront on a daily basis
  • simply listening to a police chaplain offers a path forward for those in grief

  • this content encourages citizens to reflect on the vital role police chaplains play in our communites

We hope you find this content of value. If you do, please share it with others.

    In times of crisis, police officers and their families turn to police chaplains. The problem is many people have never heard of a police chaplain.

    We are working to change that.

    Police Chaplain Coffee Shop is a virtual coffee shop for police chaplains. It is an ideal place to sit down with a cup of coffee, share important (or amusing) information, connect with other chaplains and learn something new.

    The Sustaining Gift of Encouragement

    Encouragement is the gift that keeps giving. One of the most powerful things we can possibly hear is the phrase ‘I believe in you’.  It comes to us when we need it the most and rescues us from the bog of self-doubt.

    Life Is A Banquet

    Springtime reminds us to begin anew, to put aside our old worn out worry, hurry and hate that we drag around from the winter chill.

    Expressing Thanks and Gratitude

    It is important to set aside a little time to say a heartfelt thank you to the ones who have had an impact on the way that we live, think and believe.

    The Promise and Acceptance of Faith

    When we are battered and beaten, God is at our side. When we fall and skin our knees, God is there to be with us. We cannot be separated. This is the truth. Faith is simply an acceptance of that truth.

    Justice, Mercy and Compassion

    The Beloved Community

    God wants a humanity that is characterized by this sort of fearless love which neutralizes the power of evil and transforms it to good.

    Guided by Another Easter

    “We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” ~ Joseph Campbell   Easter shakes us up. It asks us to let go and let God. Easter reminds us that our lives are not our own. We clearly discover that we are not in charge....

    The Good of Good Friday

    “Christmas and Easter can be subjects for poetry, but Good Friday, like Auschwitz, cannot. The reality is so horrible it is not surprising that people should have found it a stumbling block to faith.”
