For local nonprofits and individual clergy, especially those serving disenfranchised populations, the community chaplain travels from location to location throughout the community providing spiritual care to clergy and caregivers seeking its service.  The chaplain provides a ministry presence, brings a listening ear, offers spiritual accompaniment and provides practical tools to persons as they rebuild, replenish and/or reclaim themselves by offering:

  • Resilience Tools – workshops, monthly resilience calendar and wellness offerings
  • Coaching – Set and achieve goals around issues of self-care, emotional health, relationships, career, education and leadership
  • Spiritual Care & Accompaniment – pre-marital preparation, post marital coaching, grief support, spiritual accompaniment and referrals
  • Spiritual Care Visitor Training – onsite or online 8-week program to train those who would be responsible in your community to visit those in need of support and accompaniment
