Valley Christian Fellowship is a growing faith community of about 450 located in the Santa Ynez Valley, about 30 miles north of Santa Barbara California. As a church, we are passionate about seeing lives change through biblical teaching, authentic worship, and loving the lost and the broken in our community and beyond. We are an intergenerational church and place a high value on family and raising our teens to know and serve the Lord. If living in an area which does life in community, this just might be your place!
Approximately 100-150 students are being discipled through separate weekly Middle School and High School gatherings, small groups, and relational pursuit. Our youth ministry seeks to create an environment where students can come and learn the Bible, ask questions about life and faith, and develop healthy friendships.
For 7 years our current youth pastor has intentionally challenged our youth to think globally and participate in numerous short term mission opportunities around the world. He is now moving his family to share Christ in Northern India.
We are prepared to demonstrate our support for a new youth pastor with both time and resources. If Valley Christian Fellowship sounds like a community that is in step with your calling, we invite you to send your resume along with your best video sample of your teaching to firstname.lastname@example.org.
