DIRECTIONS: Check which percentage of people in your community with cancer interact with your staff in these ways?

YOUR FAITH COMMUNITY CANCER SUPPORT EVALUATION RESULTS:

Results are based not on the size or denomination of your church. It is based on the limitations each church struggles with when engaging cancer patients.

  • “Too often cancer patients do not tell us when they are diagnosed.”
  • “Too often we first hear of cancer problems when in hospice.”
  • “Pastoral care focuses on providing communion. Cancer patients often attend services.”
  • “Our staff is swamped serving hospitalized and home bound patients.”
  • “Long term pastoral care is primarily done through small groups.”
  • “We are too large to give long term patients individualized pastoral care.”
  • “We are too small to give long term patients individualized pastoral care.”

Cancer ministry thrives when the skills and efforts of church staff is complimented by a team of trained and equipped church volunteers.

About Karen Tripp

Beyond being a Christian Counselor and the President of Cancer Companions, Karen loves to read (she's a great reader) and loves to sing (she's a bad singer) in her home near St Louis, MO. Cancer has personally touched Karen's personal life through her dad - a 23 year colon cancer survivor. Impacting lives for Christ through her speaking, writing and counseling fills Karen with a passion which infuses every task she approaches. (except matching socks. Karen hates matching socks.)
