IS THERE A DOCTOR, NURSE, OR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL IN THE HOUSE?
Occupational Health and Services serves a major role in most businesses and corporations. Many of these entities employ persons who operate in potentially hazardous conditions. The government is therefore mandated to ensure that every person is reasonably competent and protected as much as possible. In The Church, we do not generally work in what one might refer to as a hazardous environment; however, we do involve large groups of people in an exciting and emotionally charged setting. Due to such, there are occasions when a member or guest may become ill, injured, or seriously depressed. To minimize or mitigate any adverse consequence of such occasions, a team of responsible, trained health care professionals or enthusiasts is priceless. We thank those of you who offer continued service to your church in this capacity. We know who you are and should an emergency occur during your presence, we are comforted knowing that you will give whatever services and aid are needed.
We have invested in many first-aid tools at the direction of said professionals. You may notice in various locations our AED’s or First Aid Kits. Even the wheel chairs are available as a result of a caring health care person’s recommendations.
Now that we have engaged the appropriate personnel and obtained the essential equipment, we have a greater need for a responsible person to oversee these assets. If you or someone you know is willing to accept the role of Director of Health Ministries here at home, please contact Pastor McClain. A time will be scheduled to meet with him to discuss the duties and responsibilities. This is a volunteer position. There is absolutely no pay, but the benefits are out of this world. Every act of kindness rendered to a member or guest resulting from injury, sickness, or fatigue will reflect an extension of your support. Will you take the lead in ensuring that your church has every conceivable tool needed in this high pressure and often volatile society in which we live? We need you!
Pastor N. Jerome McClain
