Steps to Start Nurse Ministry
These steps will help guide you as you begin to organize an NCF group.
Pray, and ask others to pray for the development of a group.
Identify several goals for the group based on guidance the Lord gives you.
Contact several other nurses who might be interested in helping to start the group.
Invite them to a gathering at your home or workplace.
Share your vision and NCF resources with them.
Ask for their ideas and suggestions and discuss starting a group.
Choose a leader or co-leaders.
Contact the NCF office for names of nurses in your area.
Choose a date, time and place for your first get-together. The time of day and frequency of meetings depend on the schedules of those who are interested. Monthly meetings provide continuity, though prayer partners/groups may meet more often. NCF groups meet in homes, churches, hospitals/agencies, classrooms, cafeterias or chapels - any place nurses can come together.
