The Year Ahead

Blue Watch ended 2020 on a good note with strong year-end giving. This places us in a great position financially as we move into the new year. A number of plans are underway, but the ongoing pandemic makes planning difficult.

We are constantly monitoring the situation and making adjustments so we can continue to carry out the Blue Watch mission but not jeopardize the health of others. This is forcing us to think outside the box and look for new innovative ways to move forward.

I encourage each of you to pray for Blue Watch as we face these challenges. May the Lord grant us wisdom in these times. Also, pray for the law enforcement community as they continue to face unprecedented challenges.

Get Involved

There are many ways to support the Blue Watch mission:

  • Pray – we need prayer warriors who will pray for us on an ongoing basis and at special events.
  • Volunteer – we are in need of people who will help manage our website, social media and other aspects of the ministry. If the mission of Blue Watch is of interest to you and you have a skillset to offer, consider Blue Watch.
  • Donate – it takes money to make all of this happen. The Lord greatly blessed us in 2020, but to continue our progress will require increased giving. You can give online or by check.

If any of these are of interest to you, please email us at
