For some time now, Janet and I have known that we were called to something far greater than ourselves.

When we relocated to Scottsdale a couple years ago, we did so to get closer access to special needs services for our son. What we didn’t know was that this was all part of a Master Plan. We started to see God’s call on my life to pastor and plant a church.  And now, we see this dream becoming a reality.

I’ve spent the last 22 years in active ministry. Janet and I have also had the opportunity to learn first-hand the tools that are needed to effectively plant a successful church. With God’s guidance and timing, we believe now more than ever that the time has come for Valley Fellowship Church to become a reality.

We are filled with great anticipation and excitement to begin this God-inspired journey. We are very confident that we’re doing what God has called us to do, ultimately fulfilling His purpose in us. Won’t you join us on this journey? We’d love to have you!
