Olympic champion Gail Devers once said, “Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”
This quote reminds me of the words of the Apostle Paul, who wrote in Philippians, “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” For years, the Centurion Project has provided quality training to police officers around the world, sharing the good news of the Gospel, to our brothers and sisters in blue.
Over the past several years, the turmoil that police officers have faced on a daily basis has been difficult at times, and overwhelming at others. It was during this time, that it became evident that while international missions have been the cornerstone of our ministry, it was time to refocus our vision to focus more domestically on the officers that police our towns, cities, counties and states.
For that reason, the Centurion Project is making a fundamental change to the way we plan on ministering domestically. After we raise enough funds to ensure we can meet the great needs of the law enforcement community, we will be reaching out to police officers who are in need. First in the Valley of the Sun, then to the State of Arizona and then nationally.
Our goal is to meet the physical needs of our brothers and sisters that wear the badge, while ministering to their spiritual needs. This coincides with the addition of our new police chaplain, Thomas Garasha, who brings a mountain of experience to our organization and who holds a special place in my own heart, as he married my wife and I, 15 years ago!
I look forward with great anticipation to what the Lord is going to do in the next several months, as we move forward. The Centurion Project will continue to be amazing tool to help meet the needs of officers both home and abroad and I encourage you to join the journey with us!
