Ministry for adults

In addition to our home groups, we have intentional ministries for both men and women. Our men's and women's ministries are different (cause let's face it, we're a little different), so take a look at the ministry descriptions below and connect with our office at 805-688-5171 to get plugged in. 

women's ministry

Our desire is to provide women with opportunities to grow close to the Lord, their families, and each other through prayer, Bible study, service, fellowship and outreach. Opportunities for fellowship and relationship building are available through specially announced meetings and theme events. A foundation of the Women's Ministries is Bible study. There are a couple, ongoing studies open to all women: Thursday Morning book or bible study, 8:45-11:30am which meets at a home in Santa Ynez. Childcare is available.  Also, there is a Thurs Morning Study at 6:00am led by Deby Geiger at Ellen's Restaurant in Buellton. Our women's ministry also serves the church by meeting the needs of sick and grieving families with meals and other services.  For more information, contact the church office at or by calling at 805-688-5171.

Men's Ministry

We are currently in the process of setting up some new Men's Groups at VCF.  If you are interested in being a part of one of those groups, please contact Jon Firey at for more details.  More information coming soon! 

Set Free: A Recovery Ministry

TUesdays, 6:30pm

The Bible clearly states "All have sinned." This means each of us needs repentance and recovery from hurts, hang-ups, and bad habits, in order to live our lives, the way God intended.

SET FREE is a Christ-based ministry that addresses all types of healing and recovery- divorce, anger, alcohol, drugs, relationship challenges, eating disorders, forgiveness issues- anything that you feel out of control over.  We need God to help transform our issues into something beautiful that He can use to glorify His Kingdom and SET US FREE!

For Parents & Family of Loved Ones in Addiction or Recovery

Set Free in Christ is a Christian based support group for parents and family members facing daily struggles associated with a loved one in addiction and/or recovery.  

We will come together every other week to experience God's Love and guidance, supporting one another.  Come and find hope together with those who have been on this journey.  

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30
