Greetings to all Region 7
Parish/Faith Community Nurses
Enid Rank from Center Valley, PA is the Director for Region 7.
You will find her contact information in the Member's Only section of the website at https://lutheranfcna.org/
Thank you for the opportunity to represent Region 7 on the LFCNA Board of Directors. I am an active member of my home church, Christ Lutheran Hellertown for over 25 years. Christ Lutheran is officiated by the Pastor Phillip Spohn. Our congregation celebrated its 150th charter anniversary recently and the 50th anniversary of our church’s building. We have approximately 325 members on our church roster.
I have served as the Care Giving Ministries Team Leader for the past 13 years and accepted the staff position of Faith Community Nurse 6 years ago. I am also active on the Worship and Music team as a praise singer and team member. I collaborate with other church teams in my role as Team Leader/FCN and work with Outreach related to service project initiatives. I am grateful the Faith Community supports the Faith Community Nurse staff position as an important care giving aspect to assist the pastor, parishioners and community.
My advice to new Faith Community Nurses is to love what you are doing and to find time to care for self for a healthy work/life balance. Some of my other interests include singing, Fall football, pickleball, binge reading a Danielle Steele book, hospitality, and spending quality time with family and friends. Enid
