In his role as Parish Associate, Graham focuses on two programs that enrich our church’s ministry. He facilitates our Grief Care and Support Group and directs the Pre-Med Hospice Volunteer Program (see below). Occasionally, Graham leads worship at Ardmore Presbyterian, but on most Sundays he leads worship at a small, missional church near Chester (Aston Presbyterian Church). He is grateful for hIs graduate work in the New Testament and doctorate studies on grief, loss, and healing. After a 25 year sojourn working on the East coast and serving churches in Princeton, Pittsburgh, and West Hartford, CT, he is glad to be home.
PRE-MED HOSPICE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM
The Pre-Med Hospice Volunteer Program seeks to promote Hospice care and develop a new generation of health professionals aware of the blessings possible for individuals and families at the end of life. Rev. Graham Robinson, Program Director, helps to connect university students with Hospice and the church. (Please note: This program is open to Pre-Med students from any religious tradition. However, as we meet together and grow in relationship, there will be opportunities to share what our faith teaches about death and dying. Some students may want to know more. Other students may just benefit from the exposure to another tradition.)
How is all of this funded? All costs associated with the Pre-Med Volunteer Program are funded by a grant from the Athena Institute. APC provides oversight of the program through APC’s Pre-Med Hospice Volunteer Task Force. This program provides a unique way for APC to minister to college students. Beyond the program itself, the church has the opportunity to cultivate relationships with these students through worship, education, care and ministry.
