North Heights trained chaplains are available to pray with you or family before and after surgery, to minister amidst a diagnosis or trauma. Chaplains also provide death-bed ministry and know how to minister to families in the most trying of times.
All North Heights chaplains bring multifaceted gifts and skills to this ministry, some being nurses or EMTs, counselors, or prayer ministers. Serving hand-in-hand with our pastoral team, the Chaplains make it possible for our ministry to extend into many places at one time-their heart matches their ability to minister in faith amidst life's most challenging moments.
