Ministry Resources

Forgotten Saints Ministry would like to provide some helpful information to assist you in your relationships with the elderly people in your life. If you'd like to explore the idea of starting your own nursing home or retirement center ministry, we can provide tips and insight from our years of experience.

Chaplain Ed is also willing to provide personal counseling for those seeking a deeper, more complete ministry role. Please contact him to visit a service and see exactly how to meet the Picnicspiritual needs of the elderly.

Also featured are links to websites that provide information on government regulations, laws, and other facts about nursing homes and our elderly population.

We hope the materials on this page will be useful.
