Please Pray for Valley View

The Church where my wife and I are members is facing somewhat of a crisis. Our pastor, who has been there for over eight years has answered a call from another church. We will miss him and his family, both personally and as a congregation.

While we wish Pastor Voigt and his family all the best in his new ministry, it does leave our congregation in a precarious position. We are a very small church, and have struggled financially for some time. I have heard voiced the expectation that some families will use this as an excuse to leave. It is also questionable that we will be able to attract another pastor. To add to the uncertainty, there is also a rumor that one of the Twin Cities' mega churches has plans to expand to our town.

My hope is that any of you who follow this blog will pray for Valley View Baptist Church.
