Ridge-Meadows Ministerial Association
As a Christian association in the Ridge Meadows area, we seek to do the following:
- To foster mutual support between community ministers/pastors and spouses.
- To nurture the unity of the Body of Christ in our community.
- To share community pastoral care.
- To encourage evangelism in our communities.
- To respond to the social needs of our communities.
“Accomplishing together what we cannot accomplish alone!”
As a Ministerial Association, we dedicate ourselves by God’s grace, to intentionally reach our communities together. This would include, but not be limited to recognizing there is only one body of Christ in our communities, and it will take the whole body strategically working together to reach the entire Ridge Meadows region (Ephesians 4:1-6).

“As the medical technology increases our ability to postpone death, the demands on the health care system as well as families to care for dying loved ones increases. End of Life Doulas are a non-medical person who can assist and help navigate end of life concerns, options, fears and wishes with a dying person and provide support to the family around them.”
