+Rt. Rev. Dr. Tim Klerekoper


As the Executive Director of Charteris Foundation, I’ve spent the past twenty four years as the chaplain for several police, fire, and Federal agencies in King County, Washington.  This website is designed to acquaint you with my ministry, in the hopes that you will support me financially, and commit to bringing me before the Throne of Grace on a regular basis. 

As a chaplain, I provide assistance to police officers, firefighters, Federal agents, and their families.  Whether I am on-scene or riding in police cars, or visiting fire stations, I can provide vital support for the men and women who have dedicated their lives to enforcing the law, and making our communities safe.

All of the funds necessary to support me as a full time chaplain come from donations from local churches, businesses, and individuals.  You can help support this vital ministry.

Police, Fire, and Federal Chaplain

Each day members of the law enforcement and fire community put their lives on the line.  My goal as a chaplain is to be a resource for them.

“They take care of us, we take care of them.”
