Professional Christian Veterinary Fellowship

Connect with other Christian Vet Professionals
in your Area


Christian Veterinary Fellowship groups are where veterinary professionals in North America come together for fellowship, encouragement, and purpose. Have you ever felt lost or alone? Ever wondered why God called you to your profession or set of circumstances? Have you ever struggled with wanting to make a greater impact on the community around you but didn’t know how? That’s what a CVF group is all about. Others like you are seeking to explore how God is calling veterinary professionals to walk out our faith in the service of others here and across the globe. Be a catalyst for change. Ask your Region Rep how to join, or start, a CVF group and see where God takes you!


"Since 2012, we've had a group of Christian vets, techs, and sometimes students, gather in our home for a PCVF group every few months. It has been a rich time of friendship, fellowship, encouragement, and prayer. We have really enjoyed getting to know, and do life alongside, these families who we share so much in common with."

Dr. Rocky Lindsey

South Central Region Representative

Rocky (LSU ’98) and his wife, Alicia, live in southeast Arkansas. They have two teenage sons, Isaac and Jonah. Dr. Lindsey owned and operated two busy small animal practices until 2015. Even though the practices weren’t for sale, the Lord led the Lindsey’s to sell their businesses, then led Dr. Lindsey to teach at a local university. Recently, Dr. Lindsey has assumed the role of South Central Region Representative for CVM, replacing Glenn Gaines who is having to step back from the role due to family health reasons. The Lindsey’s are excited to join the CVM team and look forward to getting to know the vets and vet students in this region.
