The Village at Summerville has two chaplains (one full-time and one part-time) available to serve the spiritual needs of residents, staff, and family members. The Chaplain leads weekly worship services and provides Communion services, Bible studies, and other spiritual activities. The Chaplain works with residents, serving on the community’s Spiritual Life Committee to develop faith-based programs throughout the year. PCSC Chaplains have even been known to conduct weddings in our chapels.
As a church-affiliated organization, spiritual life is integral to PCSC’s traditions, mission, and values. Each resident is visited by a Chaplain during their first weeks to help with their transition and introduce available services. They also visit residents and staff members who are hospitalized. The Chaplains are available for spiritual counseling, pastoral care, and grief counseling for residents, their families, and employees.
PCSC serves seniors of all faiths. Our Chaplains respect each individual’s religious views and assist with making connections with other spiritual leaders as requested by residents.

Stephen Wilkins, Chaplain at The Village at Summerville recently joined our team. He has been in ministry since 1993. Since Stephen has been at The Village, he has learned more about being in the moment while interacting with our residents. His favorite part of the day now is lunch. Stephen walks from table to table spending time and getting to know everyone. He states, "Our staff is a ministry team that is given the privilege of caring for the people God has entrusted to us."
