Start a Local Chapter
Bring the ministry of FCPO to your area
The Fellowship of Christian Peace Officers-USA has a network of over 250 chapters across the United States, all within the umbrella of the national ministry. Local chapters work in conjunction with the national ministry, drawing believers together from many local agencies to provide opportunities for fellowship, discipleship, ministry to others, accountability and encouragement.
Being part of an FCPO local chapter is a great way for officers to learn how to live out their faith in their personal lives and their service to others. Life experiences and the Bible teach us there is strength in numbers. A chapter gives individual members the support and encouragement needed to be more effective in reaching the lost around them. It also provides a platform for sponsoring outreach events. If there is no local chapter in your area and you would like to start one, here's how to begin:
- First, pray for God to lead you to two or three Christian officers in your community (perhaps in other agencies) with a concern for the lost. Jesus said where two or three gather together in His name, there He will be also. We require at least three active or retired officers to form a chapter.
- Set a regular time to meet to (1) begin praying for unsaved officers around you, and (2) to ask God to lead other Christian officers to become part of your prayer group.
- At the same time, contact the National Home Office (using the form below) for information on how to start a chapter in your area. An FCPO representative will contact you with the necessary information and materials.
From my first meeting with them, I could feel the Holy Spirit's presence, and I knew I had found a brotherhood whose foundation had been set on Christ the solid rock. If other chapters across the nation are anything like the Christian officers I have joined up with, I am sure the Kingdom of Heaven can count on an increase due to their living what they believe.FCPO member, Indiana
Why have a chapter? Besides strength in numbers, a chapter provides continuity and official recognition by those around you. Most important of all, in an era of growing Christian persecution, it makes members accountable to one another and helps them keep their commitment to be faithful witnesses for Jesus Christ.
I get to meet with other Christian people who love God, trust in Jesus, and fellowship with other peace officers were we can talk about Jesus.”FCPO member, Virginia
