Prayer & Healing
prayer ministry | healing prayer
The North Jersey Vineyard Church is very committed to praying for the sick. If you have a physical need in your life, there are a variety of ways you can receive prayer.
At all of our worship services, we always engage in “ministry time.” This is a designated time where you can meet with one of our trained prayer ministry team members for healing prayer. We give clear instructions at all of our services of how you can take advantage of this opportunity.
Also, on the “First Friday” of each quarter throughout the year, we also have a special event devoted to healing prayer called “The Healing Rooms.” Here the prayer ministry team will be available to pray with you a 30-minute session. All are encouraged to sign up for a time of extended prayer ministry when the next Healing Rooms event is posted.
building Christ-centered marriages
Our premarital process is designed to help engaged couples build Christ-centered marriages. This service is available for regular attenders and members of the North Jersey Vineyard Church. You and your fiancée will meet with one of the pastors for 6 sessions to discuss how you can communicate at a deeper level, resolve conflicts, prepare for your financial future, lovingly relate to in-laws, and develop a shared spiritual life.
In addition, a pastor will help plan your ceremony, facilitate the marriage ceremony rehearsal, and perform your marriage ceremony. Services for non-regular attenders and non-members will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
