Chaplain Durwin Burtz:
Hello, welcome to our web site. I am Pastor Durwin Burtz. Chaplain of Henderson Lodge 105 Fraternal Order of Police. I am also Pastor of the Lighthouse Chapel in Massillon Ohio. I work closely with Police Officers working in western Stark Co. that are members of our local FOP, and often ride with them on duty. I am available at all times to officers, their families, and departments in providing Christian services of many kinds. My goal, more importantly Gods goal is to let them know that God loves them and is there for them. Police Officers too often see the dark side of our society and there is just no explaining what and why things happen. But I want them to know that God is always there to guide and comfort them as they do this, sometimes-impossible task.
I also present an anti-drug program in schools across the country. A few years ago I lost my right arm in an accident caused by a DUI driver. As Captain D the pirate I entertain and challenge school children with ventriloquism and magic and my personal story. The FOP has endorsed the Captain D program and DARE officers often recommend it. If you want to know more I can be reached at 330-837-2072.
