Adult Ministries


Adult Ministries

No one can sum up all God is able to accomplish through one solitary life, wholly yielded, adjusted, and obedient to Him. (D. L. Moody)

Our hope is that all who call this church their home will experience a growing maturity and excitement as they are part of this community, together following Jesus. Adult Ministries exists to support, equip and encourage adults in their walk with God. Below are listed some of the ways we hope to do that:

Small Groups

Small groups are a key way to find community and get connected, as well as serving and praying together. Visit our small groups page for more details.

Mentoring and Spiritual Direction

PAVC Adult Ministries offers a variety of ways to engage with another member of the community:

  • One-one mentoring for men and women
  • Spiritual direction opportunities
  • Mentoring and a listening ear for parents who want to connect with other parents
  • Pre-marital mentoring (we require this of all couples who are married by a pastor at PAVC)
  • Marriage mentoring for couples who want to strengthen and develop their marriage

Our mentors are available to meet with you one-on-one or couple-to-couple, for a season of receiving input, support, perspective, and prayer. 

Spiritual direction focuses specifically on developing personal relationship with God and becoming more aware of the presence, movement and invitation of God in everyday life and prayer.  Trained spiritual directors are available on a referral basis and we have a limited number of scholarships if you need assistance in covering spiritual direction session fees.
