Parish Nursing

Why Does Parish Nursing Matter?

Parish nurses can ease the burden of care from pastoral staff as they counsel people with holistic health concerns (Exodus 18:21) Parish nurses offer a viable and sustainable response to Alliance traditions of healing ministries and practical care-giving. Parish nurses increase the social responsiveness of the church by being the hands and feet of Jesus.
