In addition, this person must be qualified to teach at least one course per semester in the academic study of religion and philosophy. This position requires passion, excellent campus ministry skills, diligent management of budgets, and some weekend/evening work.  

Davis Medical Center’s ideal Lead Chaplain/Pastoral Care Coordinator candidate will report to the Executive Director of the Davis Health System Foundation, and will provide direct spiritual/pastoral/bereavement support to patients, families, staff and volunteers; coordinate efforts to improve the patient and family experience and to help people faced with illness and grief find comfort and meaning; coordinate the volunteer chaplaincy program and serve as liaison to community faith leaders; and work cooperatively with clinical staff, volunteer services coordinator, and administration to support the goals and objectives of Davis Medical Center.  

Requirements for the position include a master’s degree and affiliation with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.); Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) credit (4 or more units preferred).  


Davis & Elkins College is a Presbyterian-related liberal arts college established in 1904 by Senators Henry Gassaway Davis and Stephen Benton Elkins. Nestled in the mountains of Elkins, West Virginia, the College was established with land and funding by the Senators, donations from the citizens of Randolph County, and the Presbyteries of Lexington and Winchester, Virginia. Our campus boasts multiple historic properties that serve as learning centers, offices, and community gathering places.  

In the pursuit of our mission statement, to prepare and inspire students for success and for thoughtful engagement in the world, we offer over 32 majors to approximately 650 residential and commuter students. We value the richness of place, the beauty of the natural world, and the importance of other countries, cultures and regions. We particularly strive to help our students find that which brings them purpose in life, where passion and career intersect for the good of all. D&E challenges students to participate in a vibrant and diverse campus while cultivating the intellectual, creative, ethical, physical and leadership skills the real world requires. The College affirms as special values: human dignity, social responsibility, participatory governance, and the unity of the intellectual, social, and spiritual dimensions of life.  

The Morrison-Novakovic Center for Faith and Public Policy is a residential facility for students with “Big Ideas”. This program seeks to foster discussion and engagement concerning the role of faith, public policy, ethics and sustainability in our increasingly interdependent world. The Center hosts annual conferences, provides a residential-theme house and offers service to the campus and community through faith-based engagement with the world.  

Our 15th president, Rev. Chris Wood, was inaugurated in March 2017, and is leading the College into an exciting future. As a small institution of higher education, we are particularly grateful for our debt free status, celebrate the successful culmination of a $100 million endowment Secure the Future campaign in June 2018, and are currently in the midst of a $25 million Creating Home campaign focused on establishing a “Freshman Village”. This will consist of breaking ground on a new dorm facility and making modern upgrades to existing dorm facilities.  Construction will begin this Spring, and the new facility will open July 2024.  


As the only health care facility with diagnostics, emergency room and surgical services in the area, DMC sees most local residents in the course of a year. In addition to a current part-time chaplain, this candidate will focus their DMC time at the end of the week with some on-call time, with flexibility to blend with College needs. Coordinating the volunteer chaplaincy program and serving as the liaison to community faith leaders is a natural fit for this role.

Campus Conduct Hotline

The Campus Conduct Hotline© is a confidential, independent risk-management service that gives students and employees a simple, anonymous way to alert administrators of unsafe or unethical behavior before it spirals out of control. The Campus Conduct Hotline© is available around the clock, seven days a week.

To use this service: 

  • Dial toll-free 866-943-5787
  • Your call will be greeted promptly and courteously by a person who makes certain you understand the
  • Campus Conduct Hotline© program and how it functions. 
  • At the beginning of the interview, you will receive a five digit case number that you should use to check back for updates and/or requests for additional information. Be sure to write this number down and keep it in a safe place. 
  • You will then be interviewed about your question or concern. Your interview will not be recorded. Instead, the interviewer will be typing notes of your conversation. Whether or not you choose to provide your name is completely up to you. 
  • Within one business day of your call, a summary of the interview will be forwarded to the college. Our goal will be to have a basic response back to you in five business days. 
  • To receive your response, you will need to call back and provide the five digit case number that has been assigned to you. You will be able to continue checking back for updates until your case is closed.

Because of the built-in confidentiality, it is important that you try to be as specific as possible about the information you provide. At no time is any caller required to identify him or herself and all information provided can be completely confidential and anonymous.

If you have any questions regarding the Hotline, contact the Director of Human Resources at 304-637-1344.

Sick Leave Bank

This benefit provides full-time employees with a short-term disability plan. The College’s long-term disability plan can be accessed after six months of disability, but the College has no short term disability plan in place. The sick leave bank (once accrued sick leave time is exhausted) can help cover immediate loss of income if an employee must be absent from work due to non-work-related illness or injury. All full-time employees are eligible for membership on a voluntary basis. 

For more information or to enroll in the Sick Leave Bank contact the Director of Human Resources.
