Why You'll Love These Opportunities

Vale Church presents outstanding next level opportunities in the midwest. Pastor Ted Max and his team have built a culture of authenticity, integrity, honesty and a relentless commitment to pursuing Kingdom R.O.I. in all that they do. Our church is going to the next level in our home base of Bloomington-Normal, Illinois.

Vale has grown from 500 to over 3,000 in just the last seven years and, even though Covid had limited gatherings, things don’t seem to be slowing down as momentum continues at Vale. 

Church Description

Vale Church is a dynamic church birthed in Bloomington, Illinois. It is a church with 60+ year roots that has experienced explosive growth over the past seven years. Vale Church is a church on the move. On an average weekend you will experience a welcoming environment, engaging teaching, and excellent worship. Since 2013 Vale Church has been making huge strides to reinvent and redefine itself within the community. It has seen tremendous growth, and dramatic impact on people’s lives.

The church is known in the community for its missional philosophy. The staff is young and eager. This church is doing what others will not do in their community to reach those others will not reach. They believe reaching their community goes beyond our 4 walls and actually means getting their hands dirty to reach the community. Vale Church partners with several Christian organizations in town to reach people in ways that alone Vale could not reach. It is not about making Vale’s name great, but about making Jesus known.
