SCSM IS NOW A PIEDMONT UNITED WAY PARTNER

 O Heavenly God, My life is so filled with “stuff” that I often squeeze You out – please forgive me, Father. I want to make room for You. I know You pursue me. And when I don’t pursue You, You come looking. Because You want my growth and perfection, You will dethrone my other idols, even if it hurts me. When that happens, give me eyes to see Your care and instruction instead of being hurt, resentful, and short-sighted. Guard me from Satan’s deception so I can see Your love clearly in these encounters. I pray this in the name of the One whom You sent to make room in me for You, Jesus Christ; And all God’s children say – AMEN!

Spiritual Care Support MinistriesSM and Pastors

 

SCSM  provides  assistance  and  training to  faith communities so that they can effectively minister to those who are ill dying, bereaved and those who journey with them.

After many years of ministering as a Hospital and Hospice Chaplain,  Rev. Danielsen has seen  the need for  giving more support to  the faith communities and their Pastors in this area of pastoral need.

God values life.  He has called each of us to have a relationship with Him, but He has also called us to reach out to others. With His eyes He sees many people in physical and spiritual pain who are lonely and weary from illness and from loss, and who need understanding. They need someone to journey with them.




I have gained invaluable insights that
I have used to help others in my role
as Pastor....The GriefShare ministry
of Rev. Liz Danielsen is a tremendous
resource for our entire region and I
wholeheartedly encourage participation.

Rev. Jeff Light, Pastor
Novum Baptist Church
Reva, Virginia

 
Rev. Danielsen has found in her years working in New Jersey and Virginia that people are not turning to the faith community but to the secular community. SCSM is working to change that
Too many walked with the Lord for many years, but when illness or loss came into their lives, felt that God and their faith community no longer cared for them. Despair and disappointment caused them to turn their backs on God. Members of the Christian community who are trained to effectively minister to those who are sick and bereaved will make the difference in a life that is at the point of giving up.  Pastors become discouraged because they cannot do all that needs to be done. Spiritual Care Support MinistriesSM is a ministry that can help. As SCSM works with pastors and their church leaders and congregation, God will bring healing.  Chaplain Liz is available for speaking engagements, retreat workshops, training seminars and  facilitator bereavement training. Clergy bereavement support groups are provided when needed.

Only eternity will reveal the impact of what this ministry will do.
 


The following is a sample of courses and seminars Rev. Danielsen has taught to patients, family,
clergy and the community. These courses and seminars are available to address your church,
community, and physician's office and staff needs. Please Call Rev. Danielsen for more information about these topics.
