Law Enforcement Appreciation Day & L.E.A.D. Manual
The purpose of a Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.) is to express support and appreciation for all that our officers do for us. Can you imagine what our society would be like if God had not appointed them as ministers to protect us? (Romans 13:1–7) Scripture teaches that he/she is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. In a time of spiritual unrest in our nation and a decay of respect for human life and authority, a law enforcement appreciation day gives the church a chance to encourage and pray for all those in law enforcement.
If you are interested in scheduling a Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, a PDF file is available at no charge. The manual is full of how-to information such as introduction, samples, appreciation and planning letters. It also includes the order of service, outlines for planning, sample bulletins plus sample flyers, newspaper articles, certificates and proclamations. You will also find law enforcement prayers, logos and other materials that will help in planning such a day. Everything that you will need to have a successful Law Enforcement Appreciation Day for the glory of God is found in this manual.
The link above is a message that John Vaughn preached at Lighthouse Baptist Church during a Law Enforcement Appreciation Day in La Verne, CA. This is a great message! If you are looking for a great speaker for your LEAD, I highly recommend John Vaughn as a special speaker. He continues to serve as a chaplain for the Greenville Police Department, Greenville, SC.
