Valley View Christian Church
Valley View Christian Church is a healthy and growing church helping people connect to Jesus and his way of life. Valley View is seeking a new Kids Pastor who will play a pivotal role in connecting Kids (Nursery – 5th Grade) to Jesus through a dynamic and relevant Valley View Kids Ministry.
In the mission of connecting people to Jesus, Valley View is driven by 3 core values: Pursue, Connect and Partner. The desire for each person is to: Pursue God by attending a Worship Gathering weekly; Connect weekly with other people in a small group; and Partner with their time, abilities and resources.
In the last 6 months, Valley View moved away from promoting ‘values’ corporately to communicating 3 statements on a regular basis. (Values are insider stuff now and mean very little to members and guests.):
The goal in focusing on these statements is to let people know that Jesus isn’t afraid of their mess, they have a community to walk with on their journey and that God isn’t going to leave them in their mess when they come to Jesus.
A key feature of Edgewood & the East Mountains is a unique diversity. Three counties (Santa Fe, Bernalillo & Torrance) have municipalities that make up the East Mountain community. Each county brings a different demographic. The diversity of the East Mountains is well represented within the church. Currently, people from 9 different communities in the area call Valley View home, including Albuquerque. As a result, there is diversity of age, socio-economic level, education and ethnicity (predominantly Caucasian and Hispanic). One comment people often make is that Valley View is not a church for just a certain type of person; it is a church for anyone.
Much of the draw to the church is relevant biblical teaching that transcends beyond Sunday mornings. Valley View also has healthy small group involvement and dynamic youth & children’s ministries. In addition to that, over the last 15 years the church has developed strong relationships with the area school systems, local governments and business community by serving in various ways in and to the community.
