Current Ministry & Outreach Project:

Spiritual care & evangelism

Enoch Society volunteers work as a team with a chaplain to do visitations to the elderly in rural regions of China as well as some low visit rate nursing home in Toronto Canada. Our visitation team aims to bring spiritual care to the lonely elderly through caring friendship, faith in the Lord, eternal hope, internal peace and genuine life purpose.

Holistic care training for geriatric health care workers

In country like China, Enoch Society has focused training effort in among the health care workers, who are the primary care force for the frail and often abandoned elderly in rural regions. Our team with chaplain, nurses, occupational therapist, social worker, personal support workers and seminary students together work on providing a holistic care training curriculum and training courses to the health care workers. While learning the biblical teaching on caring for the elderly, we hope that these workers may come to know Jesus as well.

Benevolent funds for elderly in crisis & in abuse situation

Enoch Society works with local churches in oversea countries as well as mission organizations in providing relief funds for isolated elderly in distress who are victims of natural disasters, crisis and various abuses.

Seminary education for elderly ministry missionary

Enoch Society has visited seminary in Toronto, Hong Kong & China advocating the needs for specialized elderly ministry missionary training. We would continue to seek partnership with these seminaries in equipping next generation missionary with hearts for global elderly ministry work.

Spiritual care training for elderly care volunteers

Volunteers are integral part of Enoch Society ministry delivery. We like to continue to seek partnership with churches in organizing spiritual care training that would equip the young generation as well as baby boomer generation to honor and care for the elderly in their communities.

Mobility aids for the marginalized elderly

It grieves us to see the lacking of resources for mobility aids in the nursing homes of some countries. Often, a bed ridden resident in a nursing home would remain in bed 24 hours a day for lack of transfer knowledge and a suitable wheelchair. Risk of falls increase much as there is no aids like a walker or rollator. Enoch Society’s volunteered occupational therapist / physiotherapist visit nursing home residents in rural regions to make mobility assessment. We work on raising funds to meet the mobility aid needs of these elderly who would otherwise be bed confined or immobile.

Rural region residential care facility improvement & renovation project

Enoch Society is working with a Hunan Christian nursing home to improve the home’s facilities and expand its care capacity to a 100 beds from currently 28 beds. Being the only Christian nursing home for a county of 6 millions people, we hope the expansion project would be a mean to provide a future spiritual home to many more elderly.
