The Community of Hope - Initial Training

The Community of Hope trains volunteer lay people to participate in Christian communities committed to pastoral care.  Pastoral care is when a person is being “present” in a listening, compassionate, non-controlling manner to an individual or group for the purpose of consciously or unconsciously representing God to them and seeking to respond to their spiritual needs.

How does one enroll in a training class? Contact The Community of Hope Center where you wish to be trained to receive an application with instructions for enrolling. (Please note some centers may vary on starting dates) Typically a center offers two (2) training classes a year.

The Community of Hope Central Office is located in the St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital in Houston.  For more information call:
