Evangelical Community Hospital Seeks Spiritual Care Volunteers

July 25, 2018


Evangelical Community Hospital is currently seeking spiritual care volunteers. Volunteers may be from any spiritual background and no experience is necessary. Volunteers engage in conversation with patients while providing emotional and spiritual guidance. 

Anyone interested in the spiritual care program must complete the requirements to become a Hospital volunteer and attend the Spiritual Care Training. 

Evangelical’s Spiritual Care Training is scheduled for Tuesdays, October 9, 16, 23 and 30, 2018, from 9 am-noon at the Hospital. Attendance is required at each session. Over the course of the training days, participants will hear from a panel of individuals who address spirituality in a Hospital setting, gain understanding on how to be present with the patient, and learn valuable insights on death and dying. 

The Hospital is also seeking on-call volunteer chaplains. Individuals should have a Master of Divinity or equivalent as requirement. Ordination or ecclesiastical standing by their respective denomination is preferred. 

For more information, please contact Rev. Jacqueline Heitmann, Hospital Chaplain, at Jacqueline.Heitmann@evanhospital.com or 570-522-4444 before August 17, 2018.
