Parish Nursing Program
From the time of Jesus, the mission of the church has been concerned with physical as well as spiritual and emotional health. However, with the success of modern medicine came growing sophistication, technology, regulations, and the separation of physical health-care from spiritual care.
Rev. Granger Westberg, a Lutheran minister, is credited for being the “Father” of Parish Nursing. This idea started in the mid-1980’s in the Chicago area. He felt that we needed to bring back the concept that one needs harmony of the body, mind and spirit to be whole. He felt that the church was an ideal place to position a nurse and help people prevent health care problems and deal with existing ones. After all, it already is a place where faith is strong and people feel comfortable. It is a place following the ministry of Jesus in promoting healing. It is a place where we can help people take care of their most precious gift from God – their life.
