Scientology Volunteer Ministers at the Oregon State Capitol 

From their bright yellow tent at the state Capitol, Volunteer Ministers from the Church of Scientology Portland extend their help to their community.

The Scientology Volunteer Ministers (VMs) set up their bright yellow tent on the steps of the State Capitol in Salem, Oregon, to reach out to the community with help. 

Portland Volunteer Ministers responded to the Carr Fire that threatened Redding, California, last year and brought relief to emergency workers and those displaced by the deadly Camp Fire that destroyed the town of Paradise, California.

But it is not only in times of manmade and natural disaster that Scientology Volunteer Ministers serve. They are trained in assiststechniques developed by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard that can relieve stress and speed healing by addressing the spiritual and emotional factors underlying physical difficultiesand other practical skills that enable them to help others overcome difficulties and improve their lives.

Volunteer Ministers are on call 24/7 to help on a one-on-one basis in villages, towns and cities across the globe. They live by the motto that no matter the difficulty, “Something can be done about it.”

The Church of Scientology Volunteer Minister program is a religious social service. Anyone of any culture or creed may train as a Volunteer Minister and use these tools to help their families and communities.

Free online courses are available through the Volunteer Ministers website. To learn more or contact a Volunteer Minister, call a Scientology Church or Mission or the International Volunteer Ministers headquarters at 1-800-HELP-4-YU.
