A Faith Community Nurse Coordinator is an RN who oversees, educates, and supports practicing faith community nurses while organizing, planning, and sustaining the viability of this health ministry within a congregation or a healthcare organization. This requires additional education, knowledge, skills, and gifts in the areas of community health nursing, not-for-profit management, and faith community life. Since Health Ministry can be found in any faith community, the coordinator must be open to many faith traditions and be willing to spend time in the greater community promoting health ministry to people, groups.
