The Vision of the Military Family Ministry is of a church parish where all military families of both Veterans and Active Duty Service members experience the love of God through focused, intentional efforts to support their culture and their needs.
The Mission of the Military Family Ministry is to ensure that all families with a deployed family member receive the support they need before, during, and after deployment. And, that Veterans of the parish and their families are supported through relevant cultural activities to help sustain the spirit of connectedness, aka. “esprit de corps,” that warriors experience during their service.
Goals of the Military Family Ministry:
- Establish and maintain a ministry leadership team
- Plan, develop, and implement activities such as Burger Burns, Dining Outs, and other social events
- Enlist volunteers to support families during deployment cycles
- Incorporate military service-oriented activities for worship (e.g., prayers for deployed service members, sermons, acknowledgement of successes while serving).
