PASTORAL MINISTRIES
Through the Pastoral Ministry program, MVM partners with pastors of thirty-five local churches helping them to identify ministry opportunities in their own communities which allow them to share the Gospel. By walking alongside the Mazahua pastors and the local churches
MVM is able to train and develop pastors and lay leaders who evangelize, disciple, and plant new churches.
Pastors and lay leaders attend a pastoral meeting every other month at MVM where they receive encouragement, support, prayer, fellowship, and guidance. At MVM, we are able to provide a place for dialogue, learning, and spiritual refreshment.
 
While visiting churches, MVM's pastoral ministries coordinator, Pastor
Samuel Canales, also discovers the needs of the churches and communities; whether they are building a church addition, organizing VBS, training Sunday school teachers, or attending to an emergency need. MVM then works together with the church to find a solution or to provide some resources.
