You may not realise, but your current Executive Director is also the ICPF UK Director. One of the common goals of CPA and ICPF is to improve relationships between Christian Officers and staff worldwide. There is an ICPF WhatsApp Group – which we can add you to should you wish.
The last ICPF Board Meeting took place at Gandia in Spain on October 2023. At that time JuanMa Nombela, Exec. Director of Mision 365, became the newly elected President of ICPF. At the same time our great pal Neil Collin retired form ICPF directorship and became an ambassador. Neil has represented CPA around the world for decades and has delivered Pointman Leadership training in some of the poorest countries in the world. Please pray that Neil’s retirement will be blessed.
As one of JuanMa’s first actions in becoming the new president, he has instituted an ICPF newsletter. You can read the latest edition by clicking here: ICPF Newsletter – have a read and be encouraged by seeing what Jesus is doing through police all around the globe.
JuanMa and Mision 365 run an international conference known as Expresate (Express Yourself) in a beautiful hotel in Gandia, near Valencia, in Spain every October and it is intended that the Expresate Conference will become a base for CPA members from around the world. Neil and Tony Britten represented us this year and Met CPA Deputy Branch Leader Ugo Isiodu represented CPA in 2022 – see On and Off Duty article here: OOD October 2022
I’ve been twice and the fellowship is amazing. We have faith filled colleagues all around the globe who love to get to know their wider Christian Police family. One of the best parts of the conference is standing in a big circle on the warm beach at night worshipping together, praying and praising Jesus for all His love, grace and mercy towards us.
The upshot – expect to see the monthly ICPF magazine link, and think about the opportunities this opens to you. We will be publishing the upcoming national confernce details in there – we just might SEE some international CPA visitors in Preston in June 2024! Have a pray and ask the Holy Spirit what this means for you.
Thank you for all you do
