Senior Pastor to Pastor Emeritus
In October 2019, after 48 years of leadership to the people of Valley Bible Church, Pastor Phillip Howard will be transitioning 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 will honor our beloved Pastor and celebrate Valley's 48th Anniversary with one service at 10am and a concert at 6pm. (Childcare for infants through Kindergarten will be available for both events on a first-come, first-served basis.)
Pastor Phil will begin 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.
