Our Heart is For the Nations

The vision statement of Pleasant Valley Community Church is “To saturate Owensboro and engage the nations with the glory and knowledge of the Lord.” We believe that God is working to save a people from every tribe, tongue, and nation, and He is using us as a part of his global mission. Below are some opportunities to serve people here in Owensboro and to the very ends of the earth.


Join us in praying for our missionaries and church planters all over the world.


Your financial generosity helps fund the mission as we send people to share the love of Jesus and bless the broken.


You can make a difference by serving here in Owensboro or going on a trip overseas. We take International Mission Trips every year to serve alongside our missionaries and help those in need.

Serving Our city

We believe that every single Christian is a missionary.  God, in his infinite wisdom, has placed us in this place at this time for his mission, and so we are to bless our community by loving and serving our neighbors as we point them to Jesus.  Here are just a few of the ministries that we provide to serve our city, as well as several local organizations that we partner with for the Gospel.

Each year we work with the Family Resource Directors in our local schools to identify families to invite into a year-long program where we help them develop the skills they need to succeed while building relationships to share the hope of the Gospel.

The Faithful Friends Nursing Home Ministry works with residents in a local facility investing time and care into loving them well, providing a weekly worship service, and meeting needs while sharing with them the hope of Jesus.

A local non-profit organization we support that works with refugees arriving in Owensboro, partnering them with families or Community Groups who will walk with them for their first 90-days in our city to help them assimilate into life here.

A local Christ-centered drug and alcohol recovery ministry that we support that seeks to disciple men and women struggling with addiction and point them to Jesus, and in so doing help them find hope and freedom from substance abuse.

On the second Saturday of each month at 9:00am our Food Pantry is open to the public, where those who are in need can come and receive food, clothing, basic home supplies, and a warm meal as they hear a testimony of how Jesus changes lives by the power of the Gospel.

A local crisis pregnancy center we support that is on the front lines fighting for the sanctity of human life while loving and supporting women who are making very difficult decisions and helping them find the care and resources they need to thrive.

A local Christ-centered mentoring program that pairs kids from single-parent households with a Christian man or woman to meet with them once a week and mentor them while providing a positive example and pointing them to Jesus.

Borrowed Hearts is a local organization that exists to equip, empower, and support foster families in our community and provide resources to help them on their journey.  Borrowed Hearts receives donations with which to bless foster families, as well as offering guidance, education, and encouragement to families as they begin or continue to foster children.

Annual service event where we join with churches from all over Owensboro to meet physical needs and show our city the love of Jesus.

Going To The Nations

In addition to local service, there are a number of opportunities to pray for and go serve alongside the missionaries, church planters, and organizations that we support who are making a difference all over the world.

Pray for Barry and Amy Rager, our church planters who we sent out in 2012 to start New Circle Church in the heart of Indianapolis, IN.  God has been faithful to provide for them over the years, and we can’t wait to see how He continues to use them to reach their city for the Gospel.

Pray for Will and Niki Troutman, church planters who we sent in 2015 to start Harvest Church in Calhoun, KY, as well as the many families that went with them to establish that new work.  God has been doing an amazing work through that rural church and we’re excited to see how they continue to make disciples who make disciples in McLean County.

Pray for missionaries Mike and Amy Revas with Lifesong in Bercy, Haiti, who have built an amazing ministry consisting of a Christian school, medical clinic, church, and much more as they seek to disciple and equip the people of Haiti to break generational cycles and change their country with the hope of the Gospel.

Pray for the house churches that have been planted by teams from Pleasant Valley and Heartland Church of Paducah among the Nyaw, an unreached people group who had never before heard the name of Jesus Christ.

Pray for a missionary couple we support in a country in North Africa who are making disciples and planting churches among Muslims in a hostile place.

Pray for a physician in our church who is planning to leave soon to give their life to medical missions and share Jesus with people who have never heard the Gospel.

Pray for Daniel and Kristin Wainright, missionaries in Lyon, France, who are planting churches and making disciples in a post-Christian Europe that is very hardened to truth.

Pray for Josh and Marie Ehlers, members of Pleasant Valley who we sent out in 2020 to share the Gospel and plant churches in the Czech Republic, a very post-Christian culture that has grown cold to Christianity.

Pray for our church-planting network where we partner with like-minded churches all over the country to train and send church-planters to North American cities to establish healthy, Gospel-centered churches that will last.

Pray for the International Mission Board of the SBC, the largest missionary-sending organization in the world, where we and thousands of churches all over the country pool our resources together to send missionaries to every corner of the planet for God’s glory.
