Serving at HVFC since 1999, Pastors Jeff & Colleen are continually amazed at God’s grace upon their church family. They believe that the most important thing a believer can do is learn to hear the Lord’s voice and then obey Him and that is how they seek to lead the church. Pastor Jeff loves anything to do with hunting, hiking, firearms and Pastor Colleen loves to travel and shop with friends. They are both passionate about global missions. They both enjoy spending time together at the cabin (even after 40 years of marriage). They have two living adult children and best of all... two grandsons...do you want to see pictures?

Pastor Mary Jo loves children's ministry and embraces God's vision with creativity. Pastor Mary Jo is a retired 20 year veteran of the Montana Army National Guard where she served as a Chinook helicopter pilot. When she is not developing disciples, teams and leaders for the next generation, she loves to hike, hang out with her puppy Rowdy or doing anything that has to do
Abigail & Brandon Brown
Pastors Abi and Brandon are uniquely gifted to minister to the youth of this generation. They have been actively involved in various children's, youth and worship ministries in the area. Their hearts are to serve the whole body of Christ. Their desire is to build bridges for youth to find their way into the family of God. Then, as a valued part of God's family they can know, find and fulfill God's calling on their lives.

Purpose, Mission, Vision
Our Purpose as a church is To Know and Love God -
To Love and Serve People. We believe that what we do must flow out of who we are in Christ.
Our Mission is to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, empowered and equipped by God to serve Him by gathering His family to Himself, both locally and globally.
Our Vision sees us gathering tens of thousands into Jesus' family.
As we live out our Purpose and Mission our Vision can be fulfilled.

The Foursquare logo represents a gospel which is equally balanced on all sides, established and enduring.

Missions Director - Taralee Mongoven
Just a short 11 years ago, Tara attended an alpha course at Helena Faith and was transformed by the saving grace of Jesus as she invited Him into her life. Since then, Tara has thrown herself into serving the Lord with great enthusiasm and love. She has used her talents and giftings in a wide variety of ministries - from facilitating alpha groups to building stage sets, mentoring women and serving on the church Council. But, she never dreamed that God would ask her to follow and serve Him to meet the needs of the world!
BUT GOD...five years ago, she was invited to go to Mexico to learn more about serving people in another culture. As she was on a platform overlooking Mexico City, God broke her heart for the brokenness of the people and their need for Jesus. Her zeal for reaching the world continues to increase and expand. She has given herself to building relationships with missionaries around the world and creating ways for our church family to fan the flame of world evangelism by leading teams to pray and go, helping with our annual Missions Experience and organizing Food Pack Events. She has also made great effort to grow her relationship with Jesus and encouraging others in the same way.
