Volunteer Office Staff

All our staff and team leaders are volunteers. They are Jesus followers who have a heart for what God’s doing through JPI. They all serve from home, be that South Carolina or Nairobi, as we keep our overhead low. They are nurses, mothers, missionaries, etc., bringing various skills and experiences. They serve you and God out of love, so please thank them if you talk with them…that’s their pay for the day!

 

Volunteer Group Facilitators

These qualified chaplains and ministry leaders freely donate their time to lead our Nurse Resiliency Groups. They have a heart for nurses’ journeys and for the pain of our times. Their expertise is way too valuable for us to afford to keep on staff. We are eternally grateful for their willingness to answer this call to serve God and our medical workers.
