The vision of the College Park Seventh-day Adventist Church visitstion ministry is to personally extend the love of Jesus to members who are hospitalized, in care facilities, or at home and are unable to attend church services on a regular basis.


The simple act of connecting with others creates powerful opportunities for ministry. Visitation is an inroad to hearts and lives that can create trust, friendship and caring. Visitation let’s people know that someone cares about them personally, and it also provides opportunities for church members to exercise one of the spiritual gifts God has bestowed upon them.
