Welcome to the home webpage of the Napa Comfort Dog Ministry.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. ~2 Corinthians 1:3-4
We are excited that you are visiting and invite you to check out the links on this page.
The purpose of this ministry is to actively demonstrate the mercy and compassion of Jesus, our Savior and Shepherd, and to gather as an extended family seeking to build relationships with the Good News of Jesus. With His authority and power, we are Jesus’ kingdom representatives—His presence—to Napa, specifically, and to the world, in general. Through this ministry, we seek to comfort those who are hurting, brighten the day of others with joy, and proclaim Jesus through these actions—because that’s what Christians do. The Comfort Dog opens doors for our ministry team, but the real ministry is serving our Lord by serving others.
