OUR LEAD PASTORS
Pastors Jeff And Colleen Richards
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 37 years of marriage). They have three adult children, best of all...a grandson named Peyton...do you want to see pictures?
Pastor Mary Jo Kraft
Pastor Mary Jo loves children and embraces God’s ministry with dynamic creativity for ages 0-12 in our Faith Kidz program. She wants kidz to know and
grow as disciples of Jesus. When she is not developing disciples, teams and leaders for the next generation she can be found hiking, playing with her puppy, Izzy or enjoying anything to do with aviation.
Abigail & Brandon Brown
Abi and Brandon are excited to be joining our pastoral staff team as our new youth pastors. Abi has grown up in our church family and will be taking the lead role in ministry. Brandon works for the State of Montana as an I.T. specialist and will serve with Abi to reach out to the youth in our community as well as creating inroads of discipleship for the youth of our church family. As they've prayed, the Lord has given them ideas and vision for the youth and the teams of people who will be trained and deployed to minister alongside them. We are excited with them!
Pastor Rick Davis
Pastor Rick has been an integral part of the Helena Faith family assisting in various areas including Teaching, Disaster Relief Teams, Men's gatherings, Security and food ministries. He is a retired Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant and integrates his skills and life experiences into the areas he serves. Pastor Rick and his wife Teresa have 2 grown children, 7 grandchildren and a beagle named "Sam Ruger."
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.
Helena Valley Faith Center (formerly East Valley Foursquare Church) has been part of the Helena Valley since its inception as Emmanual Covenant Church in 1976. Pastors Jeff and Colleen Richards have been senior pastors since 1999. In 2001, we merged with Faith Christian Center including the dynamic ministry of Faith Kidz.
The Foursquare logo represents a gospel which is equally balanced on all sides, established and enduring.
Jesus Christ our Savior
Jesus Christ our Healer
