Is a Faith Community Health Ministry in Your Future?
The Faith Community Health Network (FCHN) supports a growing group of dedicated Faith Community Nurses (FCNs) bringing healthcare access to vulnerable and diverse populations in a non-traditional setting.


Providing Holistic Care

If you are a Registered Nurse and interested in serving your faith community using your talents as a nurse, you might want to consider faith community nursing.

Faith community nurses provide holistic care, with an emphasis on spiritual care, to the members of their faith community.

Faith community nurses use the nursing process to facilitate health education, advocacy, and connecting those in need to resources – They are not direct caregivers, rather they help faith community members navigate the proper resources to help coordinate such care. Faith community nursing is a specialty area of nursing requiring additional education. We provide a Foundations of Faith Community Nursing course to educate nurses for this ministry.

Are you interested in being part of a health ministry, but you are not a nurse?

You might consider becoming a health minister. Serving as a health minister is an ideal role for health professionals (other than nurses) who are interested in applying their expertise to support their faith community, but such expertise is certainly not required. There are many ways a health minister supports the health ministry team; anyone with a servant’s heart is welcome to take the training to become a health minister. Health ministry is a specialty and requires additional education. We provide a Foundations of Faith Community Nursing course to train for this ministry.
