Health and Wellness Ministry

"Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well."   3 John 1:2

Hello, I'm Tammie Payne and I'm the Parish Nurse at BCCC.  I have been a Registered Nurse since 1985 and worked at Johnson City Medical Center for 16 years. The purpose of the Parish Nurse Program is to assist members and others in the community to reach their optimal level of whole person health. Helping to meet the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of individuals is the desired outcome of such a program.

The Parish Nurse acts as counselor, educator, and nurse by identifying needs of the congregation, coordinating health screenings, providing educational programs, supplying health literature, and referral to, or direct provision of, supportive services. I maintain an active visitation program for members who are homebound, hospitalized or in nursing homes.
