Valley Christian Church began as a neighborhood Bible study in the home of Russ and Sharon Williamson in the early 1970’s in Hopewell Junction, New York. The Bible study grew and multiplied into two, then in September of 1975 the decision was made to combine the two Bible studies and formally become a church.

After attending Bible College in Pensacola, Florida, Russ and Sharon’s son Greg, joined the staff as Associate Pastor in 1990. Russ Williamson served as Senior Pastor until June of 1993 when he and Sharon moved to North Carolina to pastor a church there. The leadership of the church asked Greg and his wife Susie to prayerfully consider taking on the responsibility of pastoring the church, even though they were the youngest adults in the church at the time (in their mid 20’s).

Confident that God was directing him to accept this responsibility, Greg became the Senior/Lead Pastor of our church when he was 24 years old. Since that time, Valley Christian Church has grown from 120 people to over 1,400 who regularly attend weekend gatherings of the Valley Family.

Through the years, the Valley Family has consistently demonstrated a passion to think “outside the box” to reach those who are unchurched with the life-giving message of Jesus Christ. With the Valley Family more than doubling in the last few years, the future of our church is brighter than ever, as we weekly witness Jesus transform lives and cultivate community through Christ-centered relationships.
