Bring Health Ministry to your Congregation
Faith community nurses (FCNs) and health ministers (HMs) work with faith community leaders (FCLs), serving as skilled and trained team members to support pastoral and other caring ministries.
FCNs and HMs support the work of pastors, clergy, rabbis, and other FCLs through a variety of activities including,
active listening and prayer,
visiting the sick and home-bound,
providing referrals to health and human services organizations,
ministering to families facing depression, dementia, other illness, and end-of-life care choices
planning health-related activities with emphases on holistic health and intentional care of the spirit, and
using evidence-based techniques such as blood pressure screening and other preventive approaches.

Often the faith community leader (FCL) is the best recruiter of faith community nurses and health ministers.
