Valley Life Church Campus Pastor/Church Planter Application
Making Disciples:
First and foremost, Valley Life has been formed around the teaching of the gospel. We want to be very clear about what this means. The Bible is not just a collection of stories, but rather one cohesive narrative that contains:

The Beauty of God’s creation
The Brokenness that has resulted from sin
The Truth embodied in perfect life and sacrifice of Jesus
The Compassion that God has shown through his plan for redemption
The Community that we experience between each other and God

The study of the gospel is as simple as it is deep. It will always be foundational to our teaching. We believe that a gospel infused life is only possible when lived in community with other believers, and with those who are still exploring this idea. Within community, we hope to provide an avenue for growth for people at all stages of their spiritual development.

Planting Churches:
Ultimately the end of all this discipleship is to plant other churches to reach other communities. In training volunteers to teach children, lead worship, disciple one another, etc, we hope to raise up leaders who will impact local communities. We are not trying to make one big church, but rather a network of connected churches that minister locally.

We hope that you will join us in being a part of this mission. Please prayerfully consider the responsibility of possibly being a church planter/campus pastor with Valley Life Church. If you feel that God is calling you down this path please carefully fill out this application to begin this process at Valley Life.
