Olive Drive Campus Staff

Perhaps the greatest unrecognized work of Valley Baptist Church relates to how many young people at our church God calls and equips for ministry.

Our ODC staff is a wonderful example of God raising up people from within our church to step out into Christian  leadership.  We have three part-time staff positions that we have added for the Olive Drive Campus.  All of them have proved themselves faithful in smaller areas of leadership in our church already. 

Each Olive Drive Staff member will be accountable to the corresponding division director/pastor at our Fruitvale Campus while also being accountable to the Campus Pastor.  We are proud of the team God has put together!
