OpOverwatch was founded in 2019 with the vision of providing all LEO with the opportunity to hear about a new identity in Jesus Christ that is greater and more fulfilling than an identity that is built on the badge. In March of 2019, an initial vision casting took place, attended by approximately 75 church and LEO representatives. Soon after, an OpOverwatch communication platform was developed on WhatsApp in order for all participants in OpOverwatch to communicate with one another. This platform was used for informative purposes, as well as the edifying and exhorting of one another, along with the exalting of Jesus.
In less than one year, more than 100 chaplains and LEOs joined the OpOverwatch communication platform. Since this time, OpOverwatch has organized multiple fellowship events and is in the process of planning and leading a LEO Identity Conference, supported by Word of Life Lodge (Word of Life Ministries). OpOverwatch hosts a Bible Study every other week, in order to draw near to The Lord, and to equip us for for the mission. OpOverwatch functions under the belief that our identities in the badge serve our greater identity in Jesus Christ. We operate under four pillars to achieve our mission. Those pillars are Edification, Benevolence, Outreach, and Training.
