In Bill's absence, we had Tom Daugherty present on spiritual leadership.
Reverend Thomas (Tom) W. Daugherty is the Intentional Interim
Director of the Clinical Pastoral Education Center in the Department
of Pastoral Services of the Valley Baptist Health System (VBHS).
Prior to coming to VBHS in September 2006, Tom had retired from the
Texas Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church in June 2004
after 35 years of service in the active ministry of that
denomination. Except for a few years service early in his career as a
staff member of several large Methodist Churches, all of his ministry
occurred in appointments beyond the local church in hospital ministry
settings. His last appointment was to The Methodist Hospital System
(TMHS) in Houston, Texas where he served as Vice President for
Spiritual Care and Values Integration.
