Listen to Carolyn's Story


As of April 2012, Carolyn is the chaplain at Borgess Medical Center, Kalamazoo, Michigan, and chaplain for Hospice at Home, St. Joseph, Michigan. Carolyn considers her work a type of pastoral ministry and has been a healthcare chaplain for 21 years, mostly in hospitals, but also in a Catholic nursing home and now in hospice. Holding a master’s degree in pastoral ministry from St. Joseph College in West Hartford, Connecticut, Carolyn has been board certified with the Association of Professional Chaplains since 1999. She loves to read, camp, and volunteer in children’s Sabbath School, at Camp Au Sable (in Michigan), and at the Pregnancy Care Center. Carolyn and her husband, Stan, enjoy nothing more than time with their grandchildren, now numbering almost 12. They love to camp with them, take them to swimming lessons, get involved in their lives, and see them as their special mission project to connect with God through church and camp.
