Percy McCray Jr.
Director, Faith-Based Programs
Overcoming cancer often requires a heroic amount of physical, emotional and spiritual strength. No one understands this better than the Reverend Percy McCray and the dedicated pastoral staff he works with at five regional medical centers of Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA).
Every day, those who provide pastoral care at CTCA®, which includes clergy persons and various volunteer community pastors, help people build a bridge from despair to hope. As the Rev. McCray says, “The goal of pastoral care at Cancer Treatment Centers of America is to provide an ecumenical umbrella of spiritual support for patients, family members and staff, whereby persons of any faith can be strengthened, motivated and inspired to combat cancer.”
In creating an environment conducive to healing and recovery, pastoral care providers are a great source of comfort for patients and families.
A fully ordained minister, Rev. McCray is a member of the United States Chaplains Association and a Board member of Gulfstream Goodwill in West Palm Beach, Florida. He hosts the national radio show, "Health, Hope and Inspiration," and has been twice recognized as one of the “most influential African Americans in Lake County (IL)” by the People’s Voice newspaper for his religious and leadership roles within the community.
In addition to his role as Director of Faith-Based Programs at CTCA, Rev. McCray helps lead Our Journey of Hope®, a cancer ministry training and support program.
