I am so grateful to God that He has allowed me to be your pastor. I can not imagine
being surrounded by a better group of people than all of you. We have bikers, ex
gangsters, young professionals, doctors, attorneys, common laborers, and just a lot
of plain old folk. We come to church as we are. Some wear shorts, and some wear
blue jeans, and some wear business casual dress. I am looking for a big year in
2011. We are making a lot of changes. We basically have revamped our entire youth
department and the worship team has taken on some new and exciting challenges
We pray that you would consider joining us at one of our weekly services or live on
the internet, or at one of our various campuses. “We have had a great year in 2011
and hope to finish well. We are always taking on change and challenges here at
VBF to keep things new and refreshing.” God Bless.
