Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

In the connection and care systems at Providence we seek to create an ongoing, welcome atmosphere for people to feel expected, accepted, and loved; to assist people in making greater connections into the pathway for belonging and spiritual growth; and to ensure that spiritual and emotional care and support are readily available and easily accessible.

John Hutt, D.Min., BCC

Rev. Hutt is a bilingual pastor, preacher, teacher, CPE trained chaplain and pastoral counselor with extensive experience in a variety of cultural contexts.  Rev. Hutt is married and the father of 4 grown children.  He and his wife, Elaine, enjoy spending time with their granddaughters.

”All humans, regardless of race, color, gender or economic class, are created in the image of God and, therefore are to be valued and respected.  We live in a fallen world with the tragic and sometimes devastating effects of sin in our lives.  Hope and healing can come only if our lives are restored physically, emotionally and spiritually.  To that end I have incorporated the seven biblical ”Steps to Freedom in Christ”and healing and deliverance prayers into my counseling sessions.”
