Christian Law Enforcement Mission




Carolyn Bunny Welsh

As elected sheriff of Chester county Pennsylvania, and a member of the NSA Board of Directors, I am grateful for the outstanding work of these two fine men of God. Their ministry and support is a blessing to sheriffs and law enforcement throughout the country. Their dedication is a true commitment to their Faith in the Lord.

 Brother Tim Eldred came into my wife and my lives around 45 years ago.  Actually Tim came into my whole family’s life after mine. Tim has absolutely made a life of telling people about Jesus Christ and how our Lord changes lives by believing in the promised salvation that only comes through The Son God, Jesus Christ.   Read More....

I have a passion for law enforcement officers and their family. I was married to a law enforcement officer for years. It was a difficult job for him many days. They see things that you and I can't even think of that goes on and other situations that are not pleasant. The calls sometimes would weigh heavy on his mind and heart, especially when children were involved.  Read More....

I am writing you a short update on Bro. Tim and my trip to Washington DC for the NSA Winter meeting. It is amazing to watch how God has opened many doors for this ministry over the years. In case you are not aware Bro Tim’s church has been meeting in my office build for close to 10 years and I have known him for over 20 years. I have been watching God move, at God’s pace, it is a blessing to watch God orchestrate the pieces of this puzzle and set us up to serve each other, the NSA and the LEOs that are on the street daily.

Chief Greg Giltner- Oklahoma ChristiAn University Police Department, Retired Chaplain Oklahoma City Police department 

I am writing the National Sheriffs Assoc. to endorse my good friend, Chaplain Tim Eldred.  I have known, and worked with, Bro. Tim since 2004. He and I both were teaching classes and helping families through an organization he started, CLEM (Christian Law Enforcement Mission.) Bro. Tim has always had a passion to assist any law enforcement officer or their family, in a time of need. Bro. Tim continues to do that today as the need arises in the Nashville area and beyond. His mission now is to serve the Sheriffs in their respective agencies, as they and/or their deputies go through crisis'. When we had a very severe tornado in Oklahoma in 2013, he volunteered his time here in Okla. City to assist us with CISD (Critical Incident Stress Debriefings.) Bro. Tim would be a tremendous resource to any Sheriff or deputy in a time of crisis.

We would like to tell you about a man we volunteered with at the Nashville Super Speedway in Wilson County Tn.    We, along with many other volunteers, cooked and served meals to Wilson and Rutherford County emergency personnel, sheriff’s deputies, medics, and firefighters while volunteering at several different races for several years.  Read more...

Several months ago I wrote a letter explaining about a new ministry that Tim Eldred was
launching. Christian Law Enforcement Mission (CLEM). I asked for prayer and financial support as Tim had an opportunity to attend The National Sheriffs’ Association Winter planning conference in Washington, DC. Many responded with love, prayers and financial support that allowed Tim to attend the conference; so I want to reach out to you to say thank you and give a brief report.   Read more....
