Pastor Dennis & Venessa Cowing
Pastor Dennis and Venessa started attending GHCC in 1998. In that same year they received the call to ministry and in July of that year moved to Broken Arrow OK to attend Rhema Bible Training College. Returning to GHCC in 2002 they volunteered in different ministries within the church. Dennis served as an usher and Venessa worked in the book store.
After completing a two year internship Dennis joined the staff of GHCC as Assistant Pastor in 2004. Over the next twelve years Dennis and Venessa served as leaders of the Intercessory Prayer Team, Home Group Leaders, Ushers/Greeters, Book Store, Children’s and Youth ministries, pre-marriage counseling, Nursing Home ministry, building maintenance and security.
In 2016 Pastor Dennis became involved in the Pastoral Care ministry. Also known as “We Care” This ministry at GHCC was described by Jesus when He quoted from Isaiah 61:1-2;
“. . .He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound. . .to comfort all who mourn.”
The Pastoral Care ministry includes a prayer team to address the congregation’s prayer requests, a family support team that can provide meals and groceries when a family experiences an emergency situation, hospital and home visitation for the sick and a nursing home ministry.
“A supportive ministry to the people of Goffstown Harvest Christian Church who are experiencing the common trials and struggles that characterize life in this world, providing spiritual support to individuals, couples and families assisting them in working through pressing problems in their relationships to themselves, others and to God.”
