Who We Are
At Park Valley Church, we are all about life change! It’s our goal to be a spiritually mature church while still maintaining our relaxed attitude & fun atmosphere. We desire for Park Valley to be a place where all will feel welcome and comfortable to encounter Jesus in a powerful way; that this encounter would lead to a real and lasting life change that results in serving others and honoring God with their lives. We want to be a church that functions like a healthy family, where we are known and strengthened by each other & where everyone feels at home.
We have programs for all ages from birth through high school as well as many opportunities for people of all life-stages to get involved. In addition, we are committed to serving those less fortunate all over the world.
We hope that you will get to know us and call Park Valley “HOME”!
One Church. Three Locations.
Meet our Senior Pastor
While leading a church in Massachusetts, Pastor Barry and his wife Christine received a phone call that started it all. Barry’s friend, Bob Surface, called and asked Barry to pray about starting a church back home in Virginia, specifically in Haymarket. The idea was to build a church that would reach people who had given up on church. After praying about it, Barry, Christine, and their four boys said “yes”. On a Sunday morning in July of 2003, 20 people met in a corporate office building and Park Valley Church was born.
From the very beginning, it was obvious God was at work at PVC. By October of 2003, we already needed a larger location to meet. So we moved to J.W. Alvey Elementary School in Haymarket. Seven years later, God was still working and blessed Park Valley with a beautiful new building to call home in the spring of 2010! In September of 2016, we began a new building project with a 1,300 seat auditorium. In November of 2019, we launched a second location in Warrenton, VA. As Park Valley continues to focus on reaching people for Jesus, God continues to bless us.
Every weekend, many first time guests walk through the doors of our church. If you are considering visiting Park Valley Church for the first time, then you need to know that we have planned everything with you, our Guest, in mind! The following questions and answers should help make your 1st time visit a truly amazing experience!
When should I arrive?
What about my children?
Park Valley Family Ministries have a safe & secure environment for the youngest children through high school aged students. These ministries engage children in the message of faith, hope, and love through age-appropriate teaching, praise music, and games. All of our volunteers, who volunteer with children 18 and younger, have been background checked and our Watchmen Ministry provides monitored hallways at all times.
What can I expect during a service?
A typical weekend service lasts for about 60 minutes (which includes a live band, an offering time, and a hope-filled message from the Pastor that relates to your everyday life). Our mission on the weekend is to allow every attendee to grow in faith, hope, and love and to point people to the Hope of the world, Jesus Christ!
What should I wear?
The attire is typically casual, and many of our attendees wear what they're comfortable in like jeans and a T-shirt. Please wear whatever you prefer. We want you to feel comfortable and free to connect with God.
Where is the best place to park?
Will I feel comfortable?
If you are a first time guest, we will in no way single you out or embarrass you. As a guest, you have every right to remain anonymous. We will encourage everyone to fill out a Connection Card or stop by our First Time table so we can get to know you, but it is not mandatory.
Can I expedite the check-in process?
If you are new to Park Valley Church or checking your child or visitor into Park Valley Kids for the first time, please fill out your family's information in advance to make the check-in process for service much easier! Please click HERE.
What are the tags that I see people wearing?
Each child is given a tag with a unique code that corresponds to their parent's pick-up tag. Parents must present their matching receipt tag to a designated adult leader before the child is allowed to exit their classroom. Once the codes are matched, the child’s tag will be removed and thrown away to signal that the child has been officially picked up. We may also use the tag to "page" you during service if your child needs you. If the parent’s receipt tag is missing, the family will need to go through an ID check with a Park Valley Church staff member.
