About Valley Family Church
Valley Family Church is a non-denominational church in Southwest Michigan with a weekly average attendance of 3500. In November 2009, we moved into a brand new state of the art facility and were recently named by Outreach magazine as the 44th fastest growing church in America. Doctrinally, we are charismatic and Word of Faith which is aligned with the teachings of Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, John Bevere and Joyce Meyer, while we align more with the stylistic philosophy of Fellowship Church, Northpoint Community Church and New Spring Church. Pastors Jeff & Beth Jones are the founding and co-senior pastors and they are a husband and wife team who share the speaking responsibilities on the weekend. As a church we realize that for many, church is irrelevant. Therefore, we are intentional on being a place where the Word of Faith is taught and the Spirit of Faith is caught in practical, culturally relevant ways. We reach youth and honor age, so our style is youthful and our ministries are multi-generational in an effort to help the lost get saved and the saved get victory.
