In the continued celebration of National Volunteer Week, we would like to introduce you to one of our volunteer chaplains, Pastor Glen Dockins.
Glen has been a volunteer chaplain at Morristown-Hamblen Healthcare System for three years. Our volunteer chaplains are here to support our patients, family and friends of patients, and even the staff at MHHS. Volunteer chaplains like Glen help not only by offering comfort and prayer, but sometimes just listening. Glen enjoys being a person who can give people hope, comfort, and direction as well as being able to bring peace to families. He is very passionate about what he does, and what the chaplaincy program does for others. This week is Glen’s on-call week. That means he is available 24/7 throughout the week, with many times being called in the early morning hours. He enjoys it though, and loves being there for people who need emotional and spiritual support. We are grateful that we have volunteer chaplains like Glen who are passionate about what they do and donate their time to make a difference in someone’s life.
