“We all experience emotional and spiritual challenges in life,” says Rev. Cody Frech, Chaplain at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in Tulsa. “I am here to attend to those challenges.”
Rev. Frech began his training at Oral Roberts University, where he studied Pastoral Christian Ministries, receiving his bachelor’s degree in 2010. He continued his religious studies there, completing his Master of Divinity in 2011. He is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Ministry in Pastoral Care and Chaplaincy. He has completed eight units of Clinical Pastoral Education, and is a certified Ordained Minister through the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
As part of his training, Rev. Frech completed a chaplain internship at University Village Retirement Community in Tulsa, providing pastoral ministry to residents coping with a wide range of physical, mental and emotional challenges. He also worked closely with families of residents. Later, he served as chaplain at a large medical center in Tulsa, offering pastoral care, advocating for patients and families facing challenges with their medical care, leading chapel services, providing grief and bereavement counseling, and offering support to patients. Most recently, he was chaplain at a medical center in Texas, working with critical care patients and providing spiritual support and services for patients and families.
Rev. Frech joined CTCA® in March 2014. He is dedicated to helping patients and families live the healthiest lives possible, emotionally, physically and spiritually. He assists patients in working through difficult situations and in finding or strengthening their faith through prayer and worship services.
When he is not at CTCA, Rev. Frech enjoys spending time with his family, reading, and fitness training.
