All Christian believers have been entrusted with the ministry of reconciliation, re-uniting real people to a real God (2 Corinthians 5:18). BridgePoint Church has a fresh face and a different voice to share the gospel message of Jesus in Tarentum. Pastor Val is passionate about the Word of God. Her desire is to deepen the roots of our understanding of His Word and stretch out the branches of our outreach programs. She believes it’s the Lord's will for the unchurched to come into the shade of our church and experience the fruit of His revival in their personal lives, work, and service (Hosea 14). Pastor Val is a western PA native with a Masters of Divinity from Trinity School of Ministry in Ambridge, PA, and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Geneva College, Beaver Falls, PA. She is an ordained minister with the PennDel District of the Assemblies of God. She brings with her over 20 years of business management and entrepreneurship experience with their family-owned business, five years of professional preaching and teaching experience, 10 years of small group ministry experience, and over 11 years of pastoral care experience as a Spiritual Counselor with Lutheran Senior Life, Visiting Nurses Hospice.
