Family Ministries

We invite you to be a part of this area of service and celebration as we connect, care, celebrate and equip

The Family Ministries department of Valor exists as a way to minister to families as they navigate the different joys and challenges of parents in a University-Model School. Our vision is for Family Ministries to exist as the hub for information and support. We want to help families build and strengthen their communities at the school, provide avenues for families to connect, serve, pray, and walk with families throughout their time at Valor.Family Ministries creates a safe space where parents’ needs are met by listening, sharing, and learning more about God’s role in their families, thus continuing to foster a school community rooted in faith and love. We believe that, as Christians, our role is not just to receive, but to joyfully give of our time and resources. Family ministries provides a tangible avenue for parents to not only receive care and support, but give care and support as well.

The administrator will periodically check with the teacher to ask whether he/she needs anything, so they may inform the class parents and solicit support as needed.  Your main tasks will include: Remind party volunteers to bring their designated items on party day (Christmas & Valentine’s).
