David and Joyce Reed serve as IM’s Global Coordinators for Spiritual Care, facilitating IM’s implementation of goals for personnel care outlined in IM’s strategic plan Responding to the Call. Building on 20 years of ministry as global servants in Mexico and service as Regional Consultants in Iberoamerica and the Caribbean, they seek to cultivate a culture of health in which IM personnel around the globe, as well as in the home office in King of Prussia, PA, can thrive and be effective in ministry. As spiritual caregivers, they offer spiritual guidance, support and presence; provide workshops and retreats on self-care, soul care, and community care practices; research and find resources to support spiritual growth and health; walk with colleagues through significant times of transition, transformation, grief and loss; and mentor global servants during their first years on the field.
