Donna Marshall
Camp Springs, MD
From the Heart Church Ministries

For Donna Marshall and her church From the Heart Church Ministries, their path to Our Journey of Hope was one they didn’t know they needed to take. With a health care ministry already in place for their congregation worldwide, Donna reached out to Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philadelphia for materials for a banquet to honor those battling cancer, and their caregivers. What she received was much more valuable.

George and Jeannie Stewart
Honolulu, HI
Cancer Caregivers

The call to start a cancer care ministry was clear to George and Jeannie Stewart. When they first heard a pastor discuss a cancer ministry, they looked at each other in silence and knew immediately what they were to do.

George’s previous wife had been a treating cancer patient and he and his current wife Jeannie had developed a heart for ministering to cancer patients and their caregivers. But they never could have anticipated where the journey would take them.

John Pickens
Ft. Lauderdale, FL
First Baptist Church of Ft. Lauderdale

The road to creating a cancer care ministry isn’t always an easy one. There are obstacles and roadblocks and for those who have been called to this type of ministry, they all agree that it must be a passion in order to press on and see it through.

The need and the blessings, however, are great.

For John Pickens and his wife, Lisa, their roadblock came in the form of a large leadership at their church of Henderson Hills Baptist Church and working to get information into the right hands.

Larry Gue
Marietta, GA
Eastwood Baptist Church

Associate Pastor Larry Gue and his wife Ann were missionaries in Mongolia prior to returning to their home church, Eastwood Baptist. Their heart for wide-reaching missions may possibly be why the church has reached far beyond their own congregation in starting a cancer care ministry.

Norma Miller
Ft. Lauderdale, FL
First Baptist Church of Ft. Lauderdale

First Baptist Ft. Lauderdale already had in place a cancer ministry – 20 years, in fact. So, what would a church with an established cancer ministry need in Our Journey of Hope?

“Our ministry was not impacting people the way it should,” said Norma Miller. “We needed a complete re-start. I encountered a lady here in Ft. Lauderdale, by shear accident, who was doing cancer support for her church. She said ‘have you heard of Cancer Treatment Centers of America and Our Journey of Hope?’ I went online and it was exactly what we needed. The Lord was moving me to take it in a completely different direction and I felt God needed it to be a true ministry.
