Getting Started

About the program

Our Journey of Hope® is a biblically-based, comprehensive Cancer Care Leadership Training program designed and supported by City of Hope® Cancer Center.

Any church-related individual or organization interested in participating in the Our Journey of Hope program and/or in creating a related cancer care ministry at their location are required to complete an Our Journey of Hope Cancer Care Leadership Training sponsored by the Pastoral Care Department at City of Hope Cancer Center. Those who attend the two-day Leadership Training will be taught practical methods of bringing hope, care and comfort through cancer care ministry.

Who should attend?

Our Journey of Hope recommends that each church interested in providing cancer care ministry to members of their congregation and community send two representatives. Those attending the Leadership Training event can be laity or church staff. Those who attend the two day Leadership Training event will then train a cancer care ministry team within their local church.

What is the cost to attend?

There is no cost to attend the two day Leadership Training event. Additionally, all training resources are provided at no cost to churches.

What do I need to do to create my own cancer care ministry?

City of Hope and the Our Journey of Hope team encourage and support the formation of your own cancer care ministry at your location, by providing the relevant materials, tools and resources. Interested church-related individuals or organizations may obtain further information as well as access to relevant materials, tools and resources only upon completion of an Our Journey of Hope Cancer Care Leadership Training. Advance registration is required and available at the event calendar link.

The first step in launching a cancer care ministry is to attend one of our
Cancer Care Leadership Training events. You can learn more about Cancer Care Leadership Training online or by calling 770-400-7200.
