Church Team


Pastors Vic & Paula Holtz called to “plant” a church in Monroe. Vic is the Senior Pastor and his wife, Paula is the Women’s & Worship Pastor.  They are now approaching their 15th anniversary as a church.
They are sharing their vision with anyone who wants to learn more about this 21st century community movement and what God is doing in the Monroe area. Vic is a graduate of Ida High School and lived in Monroe after graduation in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan State University. Both Vic and Paula are graduates of the Vineyard Leadership Institute now called the Vineyard Institute, a seminary study program in the Vineyard.  In addition, Vic completed the Pastors of Excellence Program at Ashland Theological Seminary and Paula has been trained in healing and counseling in the Healing Care Program taught by Dr. Terry Wardle also at Asland.



Debbie Anderson – Secretary  


Debbie Anderson is a wife and mother of five, grandmother of four and our church secretary. She came into MVC when it was only two years old and when we were meeting at Riverside Elementary on Sunday afternoons with only a handful of people. She has always said, “I knew I was home, the first day I walked in.”  She has also said that it was the website that led her here, but the love and warmth of home that caused her to stay.

Pete and Madonna Burkit were married at our church and are a valuable part of our team. Pete works at DTE Energy and Madonna has just retired from there. They are active there in Community Outreach projects.  Pete was on our original Church Board and returned a couple of years ago.  Madonna leads our outreach ministry as well as being active in our prophetic prayer ministry.
