Rev. Dr. Helen Wordsworth serves as International Consultant for the Westberg Institute for Faith Community Nursing.
This book describes a simple way for churches to re-engage with health ministry and presents evidence that underlines not only a Biblical authenticity for its place in the mission of a local church, but also a compelling rationale for its implementation. It will be of interest to church leaders and all those involved in health care.
"Helen Wordsworth is uniquely experienced in both ministry and healthcare to offer insights on missional implications of parish nursing. Her research demonstrates the impact this ministry has on serving communities. She also provides an introduction to the history, philosophy, and practice of parish nursing, explaining its uniqueness in relation to healthcare and congregational settings in the UK. Her significant findings and conclusions should be considered by congregational and healthcare leaders internationally."
