Board at Work.

Our Leadership Team is dedicated to providing support services (including materials), Faith Community Nurse expertise, the Basic Class and on-going education, spiritual support, and networking opportunities for associated and independent* health ministry practitioners within Whatcom, Skagit and Island Counties. We seek community partnerships and projects based on the belief that physical, emotional, intellectual, and social wellness depend on a healthy spiritual core of being.
   *Independent Faith Community Nurses, Health Ministers and Health Promoters who are not currently linked to a faith community or agency, but desire collegiality.
