Volunteer Ministers Continental Cavalcades reach out with one-on-one help and courses in communities around the world. As their motto suggests, the Volunteer Ministers program offers training in practical solutions to virtually any life’s many problems—from resolving study difficulties to helping addicts withdraw from drugs and from relieving the emotional and spiritual factors in stress and trauma to salvaging troubled relationships.

The Western U.S. Cavalcade is a team of experienced VMs who travel to cities west of the Mississippi, providing courses, seminars and one-on-one help tailored to the location and the needs and wants of that community.

In creating the Volunteer Ministers program, L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “If one does not like the crime, cruelty, injustice and violence of this society, he can do something about it. He can become a Volunteer Minister and help civilize it, bring it conscience and kindness and love and freedom from travail by instilling into it trust, decency, honesty and tolerance.”

The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 167 countries.
