I just realized I needed to post my introduction here.
My name is Mike and I am the Chaplain/Director of Pastoral Services for Porter Regional Hospital, Valparaiso IN. I am ordained in the Lutheran Church. The first nine years of my ministry were as a parish Pastor. I have been a hospital Chaplain for twenty four years. I am board certified in APC. I am married (38 years). We have one daughter living in Vermont with her husband and our two grandsons. Our son is living his dream as a freelance lighting designer in NYC.
I am interested in this course because of the changes in health care and now working in a for profit organization. I believe my job is secure, but need some brush up and growing in the corporate structure.
I look forward to being part of this group and the sharing we will do.
