WellStar's Congregational Health Network serves as a bridge between our healthcare system and faith communities, offering help with lifestyle changes, personal habits, attitudes, faith and well-being. Coordinated by a registered nurse with specialized experience, WellStar's program assists congregations of all faiths to develop a volunteer health ministry at no cost to participating congregations.

Each congregation defines and directs its own health ministry. Currently, over 80 faith communities provide congregational nurse programs in partnership with WellStar Health System.


Who is a Congregational Nurse?

First and foremost, a congregational nurse is a registered nurse with a strong commitment to using her gifts and talents to serve the members of her congregation and the community to promote wholeness of mind, body and spirit.

A congregational nurse is:

  • A skilled professional with special knowledge and skills
  • A screener for existing or potential health problems
  • A patient advocate
  • A developer and coordinator of support group leaders and volunteers
  • An educator and health advisor
  • A source of referral to needed resources and services
