At Valley Church our aim is to engage in the global Gospel movement in a variety of ways.  We maintain relationships with career missionaries sent out from Valley, with qualified national leaders through resourcing in partnerships, and with affiliate workers whose mission and values align with those of Valley Church.

We encourage participation in our congregation, and offer opportunities to serve internationally on short-term bases in places like Mexico, Rwanda, and Germany.

  • Tribal Church Planting in Papua New Guinea:Aimee Hedrick, New Tribes Mission, Tigak People.

Restricted Access Ministry: For the safety of the missionaries we support, we can not disclose their names. Please pray for their relational evangelism efforts in an environment often hostile to Christianity. 

Partnerships with Qualified National Leaders:

  • Evangelical Free Church of Rwanda, a church planting movement of 65 local churches led by EFCR President Esron Maniragaba. Pastoral/leadership training through an annual conference led by Valley pastors, ongoing holistic ministry projects (cyber café, vocational school), encouragement and friendship, outreach to marginalized and disenfranchised (pygmies, those in abject poverty).

  • ReachAfrica – President Nubako Selenga (former President of the 900-church Evangelical Free Church of Congo) leads this movement to train church planters to go to the unreached areas of Africa, including Central African Republic, Togo, Sierra Leone. The movement is rapidly expanding to include several areas of East Africa.

Developing Ministry

Friendship and encouragement to church planters in the city of Berlin, Germany.  This is considered post-Christian as well as unreached by many missiologists.  Qualified national leaders provide the thrust of this movement in a city with growing global influence.

Rwanda For Justice is a ministry that provides trauma care and relief for children who have been victimized by sexual violence. Humura Centre is staffed by African professionals who care for victims, arrange follow up health care, and ensure prosecutors have the necessary facts to prosecute perpetrators. Humura Centre needs financial help. You can assist by donating for specific functions of the Centre. Speak to one of our representatives in the lobby to help provide care and comfort to victims of the horrible injustice of child abuse.
