Hey Sun Valley!

I’m so grateful for you and for all that God has done in and through our church over the past 30 years. Our church started with just two families who had a dream to reach as many unchurched people as possible. Today over 8,500 people meet in 19 different services each week across five locations to gather in worship. Thousands of people have met Jesus, thousands are growing in their faith, and we are literally ministering all over the world!

You know, I’ve got to say it—the church is not just a building that we come and sit in, it’s a movement we choose to be part of to help people meet, know, and follow Jesus. YOU are the church!

In the fall of 2019, we launched an initiative called In This Place. It’s all about investing in our families, friends, facilities, and future. If we can complete the goals outlined, our church will be positioned to reach not just thousands, but literally tens of thousands in Jesus’ name.

Please pray about your part and consider joining us. It’s not too late! Every number represents the names and faces of people’s lives that will be changed as a result of your investment.

Thank you!

Josh Baker

"When I first came to Sun Valley, I was in a spot where I felt broken and alone. I was looking for peace. The church welcomed me with open arms, and I discovered I was not alone. I’ve met some wonderful people whom I consider family at Sun Valley. I learned to be a Christian is about receiving the news of Jesus Christ, and I was Baptized before my family and friends, including my kids earlier this year. I not only found Peace, but I have also found a place where I belong."

Ben and Claire Heath

“The first time we came to Sun Valley we were looking for a new church. What we found was our family.”

Vanessa Allorto

"I once felt ashamed and not worthy of God's love. Coming to Sun Valley has changed my heart. I'm truly thankful to the Lord to have led me to the amazing people that make Sun Valley."

Alyssa Fraiser

"About 2 years ago, I started attending Sun Valley. I joined a young adult’s small group where I finally found the community that I was looking for. The encouragement and accountability that I have received from that group completely transformed my outlook on life and has continuously paved my walk with Jesus."

Kelly Katsiris

“Jesus used Sun Valley to encircle me with a loving, authentic community. With their friendship and encouragement, I developed a genuine relationship with Jesus, which opened my heart to so much love and healing. Today, I have a stronger, more intimate connection to God and to the people in my life that was truly made possible through the blessings of Sun Valley.”

Tinisha Howard

“When I first came to Sun Valley over a year ago, I was so broken. After a great deal of loss, and in the midst of trying to hold my kids and myself together, I became closer to God. Sun Valley brought me so much peace, joy, and a spiritual family. Thank you God and thank you Sun Valley. I'm so grateful!”
