In July of 2021, Pastor Dave Gullman retired and welcomed Pastor Derek Yoder to provide spiritual support to the individuals within Pleasant View and, through Faith and Light, in our community. Pastor Yoder has already worked at Pleaseant View in direct care for a number of years and knows many of the individuals already. Through the years he has volunteered his time for Faith & Light and the Worship Team. We look forward to the special gifts Derek will bring to his new position and to Pleasant View.

Prayer and Spiritual Counseling: Pastor Yoder visits the various locations within Pleasant View to develop relationships. He offers support, counsel, and prayer as requested. Individuals and staff members can also visit the Prayer Room at the Harrisonburg Day Support Services Building.

Shenandoah Valley Faith & Light: Faith & Light is an international Christian association with intellectually disabled people, their parents, and friends. In 2021, Faith & Light celebrated it's 50th Anniversary.

Monthly services are planned by a worship team and include music, teaching and ministry, and a time of fellowship. During the pandemic, we have been able to remain a community through monthly virtual meetings on Zoom. Feel free to contact us

Library: There is a growing library with books about the spiritual lives of people with intellectual disablities, inspiration and encouragement. Among others, our library proudly includes Pastor Dave Gullman's book, "Teachers of the Soul."

Crisis and Grief Care: At Pleasant View, individuals are able to age-in-place. This means we provide care through end-of-life events. Pastor Yoder provides Spiritual care to individuals in our care, their family members as well as those in close relationship–including housemates and direct support professionals. Derek ministers to individuals in the hospital, in hospice at home, and conducts funerals for individuals within Pleasant View. We are honored to be able to provide this type of care that is fully funded through donations from our community.

Pleasant View Worship Team: The worship team is a fun and meaningful community outreach in which anyone supported by Pleasant View may participate. For years our team has been invited to local churches, community organizations, and clubs to share their gifts of vocal choir, bell choir, scripture reading, and message. We have taken a break during the pandemic, but look forward to the day we can all be together again safely. You may invite our team by contacting Derek Yoder at 540-433-8960.
