Convalescent Hospital Ministry is an organization of volunteers with the goal to bring human comfort and spiritual nurture to residents of skilled nursing facilities across Santa Clara County.

Before shelter-in-place, we had 50 volunteers visiting the lonely and conducting services with prayer, music, and Bible studies. Over 20 volunteers are now waiting for these facilities to allow them to enter and spend time with the residents again.

There's great need for new volunteers. In Santa Clara Valley's 300 nursing facilities, 60% of residents feel abandoned by their families. These are the people we are trying to reach. We want these folks to know that they are not alone – God loves them and has not turned His back on them.

Former Trinity member, Dave Matthews, under the organization, Faith in Action, has ministered in the Philippines since the early 1990s. He began on the island of San Miguel, where he was able to establish 4 churches, a radio ministry, and a youth camp. The four churches have fulfilled his prayers to become self-supporting and now continue under national leadership.

Now, Dave is evangelizing and discipling students from Bicol University in Legazpi on the mainland. His Bible training seminars have equipped a core group of young believers to establish a small but vibrant church near the Bicol University, which reaches out to fellow students and community members in Legazpi.
