Volunteer Chaplains Needed!

Atlantic General Hospital Supportive Care & Pastoral Care Services

One of the most satisfying ways to serve your community is to volunteer at your local hospital. At Atlantic General Hospital, our volunteer chaplains are an important part of the heath care team. They help provide spiritual and emotional support to our patients, families, and staff during times of crisis. Their goal is to come in with an open heart and to sit and connect with people who may be going through tough times - regardless of their religious beliefs. AGH volunteer chaplains provide compassionate listening and respect for all cultures, values, and spiritual beliefs.

We want to provide this service for patients and their families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Volunteer Chaplain Requirements

Volunteer chaplains must possess certain personal qualities, including:

  • Open-mindedness and empathy
  • Be a good listener and have a calm presence
  • Emotional fortitude
  • Conscientious regard for patient, family and staff confidentiality
  • Endorsement or commission from your faith community or place of worship
  • Willingness to be on-call from 4:00pm - 8:00am one day per week or one weekend a month
  • Live within a 30-minute drive time to AGH
