We are led by a group of elders, raised up and qualified as described in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus. They guide the big decisions and watch over the direction of the church. Daily leadership is carried out by our staff:


Brian Bowman

Brian is our lead pastor and takes primary responsibility for teaching at Valley Life. He works to develop leaders within the church family, and supports the planting of other churches.

Josh Duerr

Josh serves as our executive director, overseeing all finance and administrative functions of the church, and coordinating ministry teams and leaders.

Jared Johnson

Jared is responsible for the programming of our Sunday worship in the Big Room. He develops musicians and ensures that worship is coordinated to teach in concert with the sermon.

Tia Harwood

Tia leads our Kids Ministry, working with teachers, children, and parents. She equips parents to be the primary disciplers of their children.

Matt Walker

Matt leads our youth ministry for grades 6-12. He spends time with students, helping them to apply the teaching of the Bible and develop a personal faith that carries into adulthood.
