Prayer ministry is at the very heart of Village Church and a hallmark since its inception. God’s people come on Sunday morning seeking the Lord to receive through his Word and the Sacrament. The ministry of prayer applies the work of God’s Word and Sacrament to the individual and their specific, verbalized needs. Each prayer minister has the opportunity to hear the sacred work of God in an individual’s life and ask for the release of God’s love and power in comfort, healing, direction and more.
Join the Prayer Ministry
Thank you for your interest in joining the Prayer Ministry Team, people uniquely set apart to pray with others - on Sundays during the Eucharist and at other times in the life of the Church. Becoming a Prayer Minister is a discernment process. There are several prerequisites, and Prayer Ministers must be approved by the pastoral staff of Village Church, showing evidence of maturity in the faith, self-awareness, a sensitivity to those seeking prayer and knowledge of best practices for this type of ministry. The Prayer Ministry at Village Church also includes people who have been specifically trained to lead people in deeper Healing Prayer, a process of seeking the Lord together for spiritual healing of emotional wounds and other suffering or difficulty.
Only members of Village Church may apply to be Prayer Ministers. Please see the membership page for more information.
