Our Leaders

From Pastor Tom

Thanks for taking the time to find out more about Valley Life Community Church. I hope as you check out our website and visit our weekend service that you will consider becoming an active part of our community. I would love for you to call Valley Life your home!

If you’ve attended any of our activities or services, you may have noticed a couple of characteristics that distinguish us. We are a friendly, growing church. As we grow larger, we want to grow in the same way that the New Testament Church grew–that is to grow smaller while we grow larger. Our Small Group ministry is designed to help you build a network of great friends and spiritual teammates. As you make yourself at home here, I strongly encourage you to find a Community Group where you are comfortable and can develop some authentic, lasting relationships with other people who attend Valley Life.

In addition to Community Groups, Valley Life has a growing variety of programs and ministries for people of all ages and interests. Whether a student, single, child or married adult, there’s plenty of room for you and lots of ways for you to be involved!

In short, we are doing all we can to be the same kind of church described in the Bible. Through powerful times of worship and praise, age-appropriate and practical teaching, authentic friendships and compassionate hearts for those in need, we want to make a positive and lasting impact on the world around us with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.

If you are still checking out this “church thing” and investigating the claims of Jesus, thank you for allowing us to help you along the way. Or if you’re a committed Christ-follower who is looking for a place to mature in your faith as you serve others, we’d love to partner with you in becoming a passionate follower of Jesus in today’s world. My prayer is that, no matter where you are in the journey, you’d feel right at home here at VLCC. Everyone who comes through our doors, regardless of where they are in their journey, is important to us because each one is important to God!
