LifeSpire was founded by Dr. James T. Edwards, then Pastor of Culpeper Baptist Church. Faith was at the core of our mission in 1949 and remains today as a top priority for resident life in our communities. Feeling connected to something larger than ourselves gives our lives meaning. A personal connection to faith helps make happier and healthier adults. Spiritual practice helps senior adults overcome depression and fight disease, boosting personal wellness, growth, and longevity. In communities like ours, faith is also one of the primary ways of connecting residents to each other.
Empowering Choices in Purposeful Living is LifeSpire’s mission, so faith remains the heart of everything we do. We honor and welcome all faith traditions. Our chaplains are in our campuses, leading worship services and programs to support spiritual growth, and providing pastoral care for residents in crisis or transition. They are also available for employees who may need support during a stressful time in their lives. They are visible and accessible to everyone in our extended family.
