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


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.)
