About Valley Christian Church
A Christ-focused ministry based in North Platte, Nebraska.
We go where God directs.
God created our world. Father, Son and Holy Spirit are all God, separate and one all at the same time. They work in the past, present and future to restore our relationship with him.
We live God's truth.
Jesus came so we might know truth. As a human, He lived a perfect life. He allowed Himself to be punished to death on a cross, rising again so we might have a right relationship with God.
We grow through changed lives.
Believers turn to Jesus, are baptized in his name, and live each day for him. God's Spirit lives inside us to reveal truth. As we grow in our relationship with God, His spirit grows inside of us.
About our leadership
"Before I graduated in 1987 with my Bachelors of Biblical Literature at Ozark Christian College, I served as a campus minister and was able to participate in a six-month mission trip to New Zealand and Australia. When I returned, I accepted a youth ministry position in Waterloo, Iowa. On August 13, 1988, Lezli joined me as my wife and partner in these ministries. We then went on to serve youth ministries in Stilwell, Oklahoma, and Linton, Indiana. In April of 1990, we were blessed with our first child, Emily, and three years later Karli. Along the way we adopted Kasey and Caroline. Kasey then added to our family with her husband, Danny, and their sons Bennet and Elliott. Lezli and I enjoy the whirlwind of activity that our daughters bring into our daily lives, and that energy flows over into our ministry.
"In 2003, we left our ministry to accept a preaching position at a small church so I could obtain my seminary education at Lincoln Christian University. In January 2008, we answered the call to come to Nebraska. We reminisce on our first visit to Valley Christian as we led the worship service that Sunday; we both looked at each other and said, 'This is where God wants us.' We have been at Valley Christian Church ever since, and we are loving every minute of it."
