Hospice Chaplain

Minnesota Hospice is an independent, community-based organization of dedicated and experienced professionals specializing in end-of-life care.

At Minnesota Hospice, our company exists to “protect the calling” that health care workers have toward hospice care.  When the calling is protected, we can provide the best quality care to those we serve.

Chaplains work on what we call the “Heart Team” which is comprised of social workers, chaplains, the bereavement coordinator, and the volunteer coordinator.  We all do social, emotional, and spiritual care in different capacities and we work closely together.  We consider it our mission not only to bring care to patients and families, but also out staff within Minnesota Hospice.

This said, the next Chaplain we hire will function as much as an associate pastor to a secular organization as they will a chaplain at bedside.  Although we are not religiously affiliated, as hospice workers, we are all taking emotional and spiritual journeys in our work.  We are building community through shared purpose.

We are a company that is innovating.  We are looking for someone who wants to unleash their ministerial creativity in hospice care.  In the hiring process, “fit” will be more important than maximum credentialing. Most applicants should have a MDiv, four units of CPE, along with ecclesiastical standing and/or certification.  Experience (and joy!) in community organizing, pastoring a church or spiritual direction is a plus.
