The First Church of the Nazarene

This course approaches the issue of visiting with residents/patients and family members in a caring, compassionate manner that goes beyond simple passing of time. The ministry of presence is a vital part of companioning. However, understanding the dynamics of companioning and the needs of the dying person and their families are key to effective companioning. This is an interactive seminar with opportunities to practice what you are learning.

The event is open to everyone especially those who provide pastoral care in congregations, hospitals, care facilities, hospice and other contexts of ministry.

The instructor, Rev. Kenn Balzer, is chaplain for Carewest Sarcee Hospice and Carewest Col. Belcher.
