We believe spiritual expression is part of a healthy life, as important as physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
For this reason, we created the position of spiritual resources coordinator, held by Pastor Scott Sokol. His job is to support the individuals we serve who want a spiritual connection in their lives. This might mean attending a local worship congregation in their community; participating in a small sing-along of favorite hymns with friends; or attending organization-planned Spiritual Life activities.
Pastor Scott serves as a liaison with area pastors, helping individuals become part of worship communities as much as possible. He also offers comfort and support to people we support as well as their families when a loved one is hospitalized or dies. He organizes Spiritual Life retreats twice a year, bringing individuals together for praise, contemplation, and service projects.
Another important part of Pastor Scott's job is communicating with staff, encouraging them to ask and discern the spiritual needs of the people they work with. That might include finding out their faith history, such as whether they attended church with their families while growing up.
Local congregations are encouraged to welcome individuals to your house of worship. Pastor Scott would be glad to connect with you or your organization to discuss ways you can include people we support in your activities.
This service of One Vision is completely funded by private donations. Gifts to this fund will help sustain our Spiritual Life program.
Volunteers are also welcome! Pastor Scott appreciates help with Spiritual Life groups in various communities, at retreats, or as guest speakers.
