Senior Pastor to Pastor Emeritus
In October 2019, after 48 years of leadership to the people of Valley Bible Church, Pastor Phillip Howard transitioned from Senior Pastor to Pastor Emeritus.
The Elders have hired Vanderbloemen Search Group to find a lead pastor and have selected a committee of VBC lay persons who will receive candidate profiles from Vanderbloemen then present their choices to the Elders. (View listing on Vanderbloemen site.)
On Sunday, October 13th, we honored our beloved Pastor and celebrated Valley's 48th Anniversary:
- One Service at 10am - Video testimonies, music, and more!
- Anniversary Concert at 6pm - Celebrating God's faithfulness to Pastor Phil and to Valley Bible Church over the past 48 years!
Pastor Phil began his new role as Pastor Emeritus at the conclusion of the morning service on Sunday, October 13th.
Dr. Phillip Howard will always be "our pastor" and the title of "Pastor Emeritus" affords him his due honor inasmuch.
