ValleyKids

Our vision for Children’s Ministry at Pleasant Valley is to partner with parents to provide safe, exciting, and Gospel-centered activities for kids on Sundays and Wednesdays and to equip parents to effectively disciple their children in the home.

Sunday Mornings: 9:00am and 11:00am during both services.

Wednesday Nights: 6:30-8:00pm

Students

The Student Ministry at Pleasant Valley exists to lead students in the 6th-12th grades to know God and to make God known.  In addition to special events throughout the year, Pleasant Valley Students have two primary gatherings where they seek to have fun, worship together, go deep in discipleship, and grow closer together in community:

Sunday Mornings: Student Community Groups from 9:00-10:30am.
Students are separated into age and gender-specific community groups where they will learn to bear one another’s burdens, do life together, study God’s Word, and encourage one another with the Gospel.  Meet in the Student Room before breaking off into groups.

Wednesday Nights: Student Worship Service from 6:30-8:00pm.
Every Wednesday Night students gather in the Student Room to hang out, worship through singing, hear a message from God’s Word, and grow in community.

Women

At PVCC we want to empower and equip women to dive deep into God’s Word as we live our our mission to know God and make God known together.

We currently have two main avenues for doing this:

Truth and Grit: Daily Bible reading plan with monthly discussions where women gather to discuss what they’ve been reading together.  For more information and access to the current reading plan, click here to join the Facebook Group.

Ladies Bible Studies and Community Groups: Small groups of women who gather regularly to study the Word, sharpen one another, and pursue God’s presence together. To learn more and find a group, visit our Groups page.

For The City

For The City exits to help meet the physical and spiritual needs of people in our community who are going through difficult times.

For The City consists of:
  • FTC Resource Center: A Food Pantry/Resource Center held on the second Saturday of each month where we offer food, clothes, household items, and other resources to help meet the physical needs of people in our community while sharing the hope of the Gospel.
  • Family Empowerment Program: Partnerships with local schools to empower individuals to provide for their families, break cycles, and contribute to the community using their unique gifts and talents.
  • Homeless Ministry: Groups of people within our church who serve meals, minister to residents, and volunteer at various homeless shelters throughout our city.
  • Nursing Home Ministry: We are actively engaged in ministry at the Owensboro Center, holding weekly bible studies and connecting people in our church into ongoing relationships with residents to meet needs and be a faithful friend throughout the year.
We also partner with several non-profits around Owensboro to help minister to those in need:
  • MentorKids KY: Meet with a child for one hour once a week from a single-parent household to provide support, guidance, and a positive Christian role-model as they’re going through life.
  • Friends of Sinners: Disciple someone who is struggling with addiction and substance abuse as they find freedom through the power of the Gospel.
  • CareNet Owensboro: Volunteer to help women who are clients at this local crisis pregnancy center as they seek hope and help through dealing with an unplanned pregnancy.
  • The Welcome Project: Help a refugee family who has just arrived in Owensboro from some of the most desperate places on the planet as they walk through their first 90 days in Owensboro and try to assimilate into their new life in our city.

Music

Music is an amazing gift from God.  It stirs our affections and plants truth deep into our hearts.  We want to serve our people with music that is filled with truth, is centered on and shaped by the Gospel, and is done as excellently as we know how.

Orphan Care

At Pleasant Valley, one of our greatest passions is to care for orphans, whether through adoption, mentoring (through MentorKids Kentucky), foster care, or praying for and financially supporting others to adopt.  We also partner with CareNet to care for the unborn.  We were all spiritual orphans once, abandoned and hopeless until we were rescued and adopted as sons and daughters of the Father.  In the same way, we want to live out this Gospel by loving, caring for, and adopting children in desperate situations into our families to the glory of God.

Through our partnership with Lifesong, an organization working to care for orphans in literally every corner of the world, we have a fund set aside to assist members of our body in overcoming the financial burdens of adoption.  If you are a member of Pleasant Valley and have completed your home study, we strongly encourage you to contact the church office and fill out a Titus Fund application.

Church Planting

We look to the New Testament to see the purpose and pattern of the churches that Jesus and His apostles began. One thing that stands out is continued growth and expansion in areas both near and far with the Gospel and the establishment of new churches. We desire to see new leaders raised up from within our church to leave us and start new works in areas that need more Gospel presence for those who are unchurched. Since 2014 we have helped launch the following new churches/church starts:

New Circle Church – Indianapolis, IN – led by Pastor Barry Rager
Gospel Community Church – Owensboro, KY – led by Pastor Danny Hinton
Harvest Church of Calhoun – Calhoun, KY – led by Pastor Will Troutman

We partner with both the Sojourn Network and the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention in order to plant new churches across our nation and the world.

Global Missions

It has always been the plan of God to fill the whole earth with his glory. After Jesus was raised he commissioned his church to go and make disciples of all nations, baptize them, and teach them to obey all that he commanded. We desire to make disciples who are burdened and committed to make disciples everywhere, including the hardest places on earth.

We consider it an amazing privilege to leverage our time, money, and resources to make disciples, raise up leaders, and plant churches in as many unreached places as possible.

PVCC is currently:

  • Planting churches in Northeast Thailand among the Thai Nyaw people.
  • Caring for orphans alongside LifeSong in Bercy, Haiti.
  • Partnering with Southern Baptists to send missionaries all over the world through the International Mission Board.
  • Training local pastors in mission fields across the globe through Reaching and Teaching ministries.
