Zack Hankin wants to go into chaplaincy work after he graduates from Bible college.
He’s joined the team at St George Hospital in Kogarah, Sydney, where he regularly visits.
He has an extra reason for wanting to serve in hospital chaplaincy: he has a brain tumour and between six and 12 years to live.
He says hospital chaplaincy is really helping him to understand suffering.
The manager of health and justice chaplains at Anglicare, the Reverend Stephen Gibson, says chaplaincy work is expanding.
He’s told the Sydney Anglicans website, the fact that people are now going to Bible college thinking about chaplaincy, will help normalise it as one of the career paths Bible college students can take.
