About Park Valley Church
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”!
What We Believe
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.
