Greater Dayton Area FCN/Health Ministers Network

Join us at the Greater Dayton Area Faith Community Nurse/Health Ministers Network! Meetings are held quarterly and focus on sharing information, learning from guest presenters and reflecting on theological issues. These elements help to reinforce our belief that healing of body, mind and spirit is rooted within the faith community and the healing power of God.
