Well-Being, Our Health & Wholeness Ministry
PUN Nurse
 

The Rev. Mr. Tim Winslea, RN serves as our nurse through the Presbyterian Urban Network.  Prior to his appointment as an Instructor at the Nursing School of the  University of Portland, Tim served Presbyterian (U.S.A.) and United Methodist congregations both in New York and Oregon for over twenty-five years. During his pastoral ministry, he also taught nursing at Linfield College and served as a psychiatric nurse in a local hospital. The hallmarks of his ministry included congregational development, interfaith dialogues, and social justice work related to healthcare, LGBTC+ and homelessness.

In February of 2020, just prior to the pandemic, Tim was commissioned to serve the Presbyterian Urban Network (PUN) as a faith community health nurse for the small urban congregations that make up the network.  Tim assists our Pastor and Deacons in their work of encouraging the congregation to witness, compassion, and service.  This ministry focuses on ministries healing and wholeness within the church, and on reaching out to the surrounding community.  Tim is available directly by phone or email as listed in our church directory.  Bulletin Boards in the social hall have educational information about wellness activities and health care resources to address our well-being in body, mind, and spirit. Common Groundís ongoing health project is a weekly Tai Chi for Better Balance class.  

We are glad to have this partnership with Tim as he serves as a nurse theologian for the Presbyterian Urban Network in Portland.  You can see Tim at Wednesday prayer!
