July 2013 News Release
The International Conference of Police Chaplain held its 40th
Annual Training Seminar in Grapevine Texas July 8- 12, 2013. ICPC has more than 2100 members with 12 Regions worldwide and also associates with many other countries where law enforcement chaplaincy is active, developing and growing. The ICPC provides foundational information to local, state and federal law enforcement agencies on chaplaincy startup and support.
Chaplains serve many personal and spiritual needs of individuals where they are, when they need the support of another person who comes to them without judgment, with openness, and cares for them until the crisis moment is over. Chaplains respect the persons they serve, even though there may be profound differences in race, gender, economic status, religious experience and many other factors.
In conjunction with the conference training, elections for the 2013-2015 Executive Officers were conducted with the following being elected: President – Chaplain Mike Hardgrove of Tulsa, Oklahoma; President Elect – Chaplain Mark Clements of La Crosse, Wisconsin; Vice President – Chaplain Mark Bardsley of Marion Indiana; Secretary – Chaplain Cyndee Thomas of Roseville, California; Treasurer – Chaplain Bob Fiers of Indianapolis, Indiana and Past President Keoki Awai of Honolulu, Hawaii.
The Executive Officers along with Board of Directors advance the mission of ICPC by developing professional law enforcement chaplains through dynamic education and support.
