Penn Valley Church is led by a plurality of elders and campus leadership team of gifted apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds & teachers to equip the people to do the work of the ministry. We believe this approach is rooted in the New Testament scriptures(Ephesians 4:11,12) and is the best way for us to grow towards becoming the church Christ has intended us to be.
