Chaplaincy Services

Chaplain - Ro Fesser, Diaconal Minister

As a Christian-based care facility, Eben Ezer seeks to provide comprehensive care for our residents – care that addresses the “whole” person as a composite of physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Chaplain Ro Fesser serves as our spiritual arm and offers individualized support for our residents, their families, and our staff. Our chaplain leads a variety of worship services and Bible studies; makes hospital visits; and offers devotionals for monthly staff meetings, our Resident Council and the Eben Ezer Auxiliary. Chaplain Fesser can also be found conducting Sunday worship services and both preside at funerals, memorials, and weddings in the historic All Saint’s Church, located on our grounds as well as other locations in our Morgan County community.

Upon admission to Eben Ezer, each resident is visited by our chaplain and given a spiritual assessment. They are invited to participate in our many opportunities for worship and study. Scheduled programs are offered every day of the week, except Saturday, to include:

no matter how unimportant they seemed,
you did for Me.

 

All Saints Church

All Saints Church was dedicated September 15, 1918. The building was designed by Eben Ezer founder, Rev. Jens Madsen, and built by mostly volunteer workers. Madsen wanted the sanctuary to reflect the presence of the sacred with a sense of intimacy. He sought to do this with beautiful stained glass, gothic arches, a pitched beam work ceiling, oak pews, and limited seating.

The name “All Saints” was chosen to reflect the church as a place of worship for all believers. It was to be an open door of spiritual nourishment to all the residents of Eben Ezer. All Saints Church, as “house of prayer” was to symbolize the central place of the Gospel in the work and ministry of Eben Ezer. All Saints Church provides the residents of Eben Ezer with an opportunity to enrich and deepen their spirituality. Pastor Dan Hays is the pastor of the church and Ro Fesser, Diaconal Minister serves as the chaplain for Eben Ezer.

All Saints was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior in June, 1982
