Raleigh, North Carolina:
The Naylor Network Evangelistic Association is excited to announce a new ministry within our organization. The Division of Spiritual Care is a project many members of our organization have been working on for several years. The organization put this project to the side in years past due to the amount of reorganization taking place within the music portion of our ministry. With recent changes and the ability to free up staff - we hope to make new progress in spreading the message of Christ, his love, and hope in our communities through new online and outreach opportunities.
Brittany Richo, Associate Director of the association considers it an honor to be the leader of this new project. "We hope to encourage, promote, and lend not only a voice of hope but prayer and support to people in our home community, the nation, and the world." said Richo. The division's plan currently is to provide a large online database for people to use and communicate daily on our website www.nicholasnaylor.org/care. This is also a place to add prayer request, get encouragement, share your testimony and connect with the online community outside the normal uses of social media. In addition, the division is working to provide "Spiritual Care Specialists," much like chaplains to reach out to those who are hurting or have other needs providing prayer and support. Our Spiritual Care Specialist would also be available to meet and pray with folks in the hospital, nursing home, death of a loved one and other needs. We are not pastors nor chaplains, but we are ministers of the gospel and hope to lend an ear and pray with those who desire.
We will also be working with our staff to become certified in disaster responses in the future. But until then, we hope to provide support in other ways such as concert fundraising for supplies and other events to help those impacted during crisis. In the uncertainty of the COVID-19 disaster, we felt this was an ample and important time to release this division. We are standing by to help you with your spiritual needs. We're here for you and you're what our new division is all about. If you would like to become involved with our organization as a specialist go to www.nicholasnaylor.org/join. We look forward to working with you, and we hope you will engage in our ministry through membership or our online community.
