MentorKids USA is a Christian ministry that recruits, trains and supports mentors who empower young people facing tough life challenges to reach their God-given potential and become transformative members of their families and communities in the name of Jesus Christ.

We meet at the church every Monday at 3PM, drive the church van down, and are back by 5PM. The program is located at First Pentecostal Church Community Center, 2709 E Marguerite Ave, in Phoenix. See you there! If you can help, contact Chris Woodard

Volunteer teams help sort clothes, stack pantry shelves or greet clients at ICM Food and Clothing Bank. Weekly carpool. Contact Chris Woodard to volunteer. 

 

The Spring

The Spring is a Christian church community in Tempe near ASU that strives to help people of the area develop stronger ties to Christ, their community and the world. Many members are under 40. The Spring meets on Sundays at 5PM for worship in a style similar to Valley’s Sunday morning contemporary service. After the service, members share a free community meal. Volunteers from VPC cook and serve dinner at The Spring several times throughout the year, provided mostly by members and friends of the VPC Mission Committee. 

Contact Ed or Beth Glady for information or if you’d like to serve.

International Mission

Ministry of Hope: Mission to Malawi

In 1999 Malawians established the Ministry of Hope (MOH) as a local, community-based response to meet physical and spiritual needs of orphaned and vulnerable children. Using crisis nurseries, community centers, scholarships, and mobile medical clinic programs, Malawi fights for its existence. VPC has helped provide support to thousands of orphaned children and widows in the 11 years since the MOH opened.
