Our Journey of Hope Cancer Care Ministry is a hope ministry. While it involves prayer, counsel, visits, and assistance, it is centered on bringing God's hope to patients and their caregivers, family and friends. This requires an understanding of the impact of cancer, how people react to it and how God has called His people to respond. Above all, it requires us to have within ourselves an unfeigned hope that we can take to those in need.


Our Journey Of Hope Cancer Care Ministry was started in Chattanooga, Tennessee at the Greater Tucker Missionary Baptist Church March 2017.

This ministry training program was created by Dr. Percy McCray, Director of Chaplains for the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, because of the significant need in our nation, as well as in the body of Christ, to care for those dealing with cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, over 12 million people in the United States are living with or have been personally diagnosed with cancer. Every year, 1.5 million more people receive a cancer diagnosis. This means that, in a church of 200 people, approximately eight members are living with cancer. Each of these individuals has family members and caregivers that are affected as well. This Bible-based ministry training program has been developed to equip God's people with the tools needed to bring HOPE to the millions who are living with cancer.


Why is Cancer different?

Cancer attacks the body. It is an assault of rogue cells trying to take over the body and break down everything in their path. But its attack is no less intensive on the mind and spirit. Yet, there remains something that cancer cannot conquer: hope.


Cancer care ministry requires unique insights, both into the disease and into God's Word. The purpose of Our Journey of Hope is to equip you with these insights and to help you cultivate and carry the hope for which so many are longing.


What is the impact?

Imagine you are feeling afraid, rejected, alone, powerless, ashamed and hopeless. Envision, then, if someone comes to you and says words that no one else has said, does things that no one else has done and leaves you with courage, strength, dignity and hope for the future - and God's plan. How would that affect you? What if it changed one day? What about 10 days? 100 days? What if it helped you through to see another whole season of life with hope?
