Pastoral Care

The Congregational Care Ministry operates under the leadership of Congregational Care pastor Rev. Ron Meyer. In addition, two professional counselors are on staff and comprise the Emmaus House Counseling Ministry.

The Congregational Care and Counseling office is located in Emmaus House on the corner of Springfield Drive and Ridgefield Road, adjacent to the upper parking lot of Fourth Church
