the latest update

On Sunday, September 11, Founding Pastors Jeff and Beth Jones announced that Pastors Eric and Alexa Jones will be the successors of Valley Family Church! This is a significant milestone in ministry for our church, and we're grateful to God for His faithfulness and grace in every step of the way. The past 31 years have been incredible, and we know the best is yet to come for the next 30 years. 

So, what does this mean for our church right now? 

We have officially transitioned from the exchange zone to the changeover season. Pastors Eric and Alexa are the the Interim Lead Pastors from now through January 2023. On January 29, we will have an official baton passing service where they will step into the role of Lead Pastors. Pastors Jeff and Beth will remain involved, but in a Founding Pastors role.

Will we have a time to honor Pastors Jeff and Beth for their lives and legacy?

Of course! We will have a special service sometime this year (details to come) where our church family will be able to extend honor and love to Pastors Jeff and Beth for their lives and legacy in the faith. 

What can I expect for the future of Valley Family Church?

Both Pastors Eric and Alexa have grown up in families rich in faith and have a great heritage in the Lord. They love the body of Christ and specifically, our local church, Valley Family Church. They have great depth in the Word of God, love the Spirit of God and are builders of the Church! Though the method of reaching people in the years to come might be different, the message of the gospel will always remain the same. They are full of passion and vision for where God wants to lead our church into the future and have the support and covering of Pastors Jeff and Beth as seasoned mentors, leaders on the Board of Directors and most importantly, their parents. 

What can I do in this season to help support our church? 

The biggest thing you can do to help support our church in this season is to pray. Prayer paves the way. We're gathering every Wednesday night at 6pm before our Valley Nights discipleship classes to pray for this transition and for God to continue to move mightily in our city in and through our church. On top of prayer, unity is also important! Let's keep our hearts aligned to the vision and mission of this House, love one another and invite others to join along in the journey. 

If I have questions, where can I ask them? 

If you have any questions about the exchange zone, you can email [email protected] and a team member of ours will get back with you. 

We're excited about this new season for Valley Family Church and can't wait to see what God will do in and through us as we pass the faith from one generation to the next.

 

the best is yet to come!
