August 30, 2019
Please welcome Joyce and David Reed to join the team of Global Consultants and Coordinators. In the Global Mission Team Meeting on August 29, 2019 we voted on the appointment/reassignment of David and Joyce Reed to serve as Global Coordinators for Spiritual Care effective August 1, 2020. David and Joyce will facilitate International Ministries’ (IM) implementation of goals for personnel care outlined in IM’s strategic plan Responding to the Call. Building on 20 years of ministry as global servants in Mexico and service as Regional Consultants in Iberoamerica and the Caribbean, they seek to cultivate a culture of health in which IM personnel around the globe, as well as in the home office in King of Prussia, PA, can thrive and be effective in ministry. As spiritual caregivers, they offer spiritual guidance, support and presence; provide workshops and retreats on self-care, soul care, and community care practices; research and find resources to support spiritual growth and health; walk with colleagues through significant times of transition, transformation, grief and loss; and mentor global servants during their first years on the field.
