Spring 2017: This issue of the Parish Nurse Newsletter highlights the importance of volunteers to the overall ministry of the congregation.
Included in this issue are insights from parish nurses and a pastor that will encourage, equip and support the spirit of volunteerism that is vital for sharing God’s love within congregations and communities.
The newsletter also includes other important information:
- Thoughts on the difference between being a paid or an unpaid parish nurse;
- Ideas for developing a successful plan for a congregation’s volunteers; and
- Educational opportunities for parish nurses serving across the globe.
The Lord bless your ministry,
Dr. Marcia (Marcy) Schnorr and Karen Hardecopf
