Valley Springs is a new and growing church that began with a team of 29 people moving to Corvallis in the summer of 2015. The church plant team was sent out by Vine Church in Carbondale, IL.
Planting new churches in university cities has been part of Vine’s vision for a number of years, having sent churches as far as Blue Sky Church in Bellevue, WA and Cedar Heights Church in State College, PA. Valley Springs is one of three different church plants that were sent out during the Summer of 2015 in our small group of churches.
It wasn’t until some of the overseeing pastors at Blue Sky were praying about the state of Oregon, with Eugene and Corvallis in mind, that Vine would send another church as far as the west coast and the churches would be like "twins," being planted at the same time in the same state. The overseers at Vine, including Mike Luczkiw, a staff pastor at the time, felt faith that Mike would lead the Corvallis church plant team. Mike and his wife Laura prayed, then visited Corvallis and felt Jesus confirm that they were to go.
The vision of Valley Springs is to continually serve as a local church for Oregon State University and the surrounding Corvallis community, and to eventually plant healthy local churches near university cities in the Northwest and overseas.
The word vista means “a pleasing view,” and often implies needing to fix our eyes on it in the distance. In this life, there is nothing more necessary or wonderful than looking to Jesus in all matters of belief and practice. It is our hope that, as a church, we would do this with great passion!
