There’s Power at Work in You

Our goal is to love teens, develop leaders, and share the Gospel.

We understand the importance of developing personal faith and the struggles that can come with living that faith out. We work hard to create an environment where teens/students can be themselves, ask questions and find hope as they grow in their relationship with God and with others.

If we can answer any questions or help you in any way, please call or email us: Taylor Mabry @ taylor.mabry@thevalley.church or (937) 778-8822

Next Steps

Journey Study

Learn more about what it means to be a follower of Christ and what God expects from us as we live out the new life He has given us.

This 8-week Journey explores trusting Jesus, eternal life, what God expects, prayer, the Bible, sharing your faith, giving, the church and more.

You do the study at home and then meet for an hour once a week with a mature Christian to discuss the study and answer any questions you have.


Baptism is an outward act of obedience that represents the inward change that God has already worked in your life when you said yes to a relationship with Him. Baptism shows the redeeming power of God, and tells the world we have been made new! It represents our sinful life being washed clean because of our faith in Jesus. – Romans 6:4

For those who have chosen to follow Jesus, a great next step of obedience is to be baptized.

To prepare we ask those being baptized to complete the Journey, an eight-week one-on-one Bible Study called the Journey in preparation for that day.
