GAIN VALUABLE WORK EXPERIENCE

The Valley has continued to grow steadily as people first experienced and then shared the joy of having their lives changed by Christ. This sense of excitement and joy is part of the DNA of our church.

The Valley Church has always understood the importance of ministering to persons of all age groups and especially to young families. In fact, the church believes that the best way to change the world is “one child at a time”.

Within four years, you will move from shadowing to leading a team.

GROW SPIRITUALLY

Through worship, prayer, and Bible study, we want to see you soar spiritually. You will even receive educational experiences in theology, leadership, and discipleship.
