The Care Team
The mission of our Care Team is to foster a climate that upholds the Biblical mandate to “love one another as Christ has loved us” (John 15:12) and to “Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2).
The Care Team is a group of clergy and lay volunteers who can provide information on resources within and outside the church, connect parishioners with an appropriate person (clergy, layperson, professional), provide an emergency meal, help brainstorm about a problematic situation, or simply lend a listening ear. Team members are not therapists, but they make calls and can walk with parishioners who are ill, grieving, or experiencing difficult times.
The Care Team is directed by The Rev. Deacon Jim Dorman. As a volunteer he is available by phone or email and will arrange to meet with people, help assess concerns, and make appropriate recommendations and/or referrals to carefully screened counselors and resources in the community. Confidentiality is carefully guarded.

Rev. Deb Tenney can refer as appropriate to carefully screened resources within and outside Holy Trinity Anglican Church (clergy, counselors, or other resources). Additionally, she can meet with parishioners to help them think clearly through difficult situations or relationships. She usually provides several names of counselors for you so you can explore the options and choose based upon counselor expertise, personality, experience, price, and location. She can be reached by calling her at 719 481 9673 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parishioners in need of financial counseling will be referred to Tri-Lakes Cares in Monument or Mercy's Gate in Colorado Springs, our partner ministries for extended support.
