Hi, my name is Andrea and I have been a member of POCC for 30 years. Having grown up at Port Orange Christian Church, I was thrilled to hear of this ministry opportunity. I felt the Lord’s calling to become a Shepherd’s Hope Lay Ministry Counselor and I am excited the time is finally here.
Apart from my amazing parents who raised my brother and I in Christ, so many wonderful members of our congregation have contributed to my spiritual growth over the years. I am profoundly grateful that they loved me enough to share their biblical knowledge and life experiences not only with me, but my son.
Having watched many of them through trials and tribulations, this Christ-centered ministry is a way to give back to those who are hurting and help them bridge the gap to peace.
As a caregiver I pray God allows me to help facilitate peace and joy for someone struggling during a difficult time, as He has done in my personal life.
Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
