Job Description:

Valley Ranch Baptist Church was launched in 1986 as church plant of Park Cities Baptist Church. The Coppell and Valley Ranch area was an area of rapid growth and the church established itself quickly under the leadership of its first pastor, Dr. Paul Basden. By the end of its first year, it was completely self-supporting. In 1991, Dr. Jerry Carlisle took the reins as Senior Pastor and the church continued to establish itself in the Coppell area, building its first permanent facility on 7.5 acres where the church still meets.


In August 1999, Valley Ranch Baptist Church called Dr. Larry Parsley as Senior Pastor. The church continued to experience growth and added a third Bible study and worship service. In 2000, the church launched the Christmas Store ministry, which helped the church focus even further on missions in the community. During this time they also adopted a recommendation from the Facility Task Force to expand the Belt Line Road location, breaking ground on Phase II in 2002. In September 2003, the church moved into the new 900-seat sanctuary and additional Bible study space with 661 members. In September 2006, VRBC completed the renovation of the west wing (the original building), creating space for student and children’s ministries. In recent years, the church has continued to grow in size and expand its ministry locally in the Coppell and Valley Ranch communities as well as the South Dallas area. It has also expanded its ministry nationally in areas such as the Rio Grande Valley and internationally in several locations around the globe.
