Our Pastor

Welcome to our visitors,

I hope that you find the information on our developing website informative in regards to the activity and beliefs of Pleasant Valley. It is our desire that it will also minister to you in body and spirit as well just as a visit to our services might.

Although Pleasant Valley is small you will find a very vibrant and active church not only spiritually but in good works toward our community. Pleasant Valley MBC has been a hidden gem to many in the Washington/Sunnyland/East Peoria area due to her very humble attitude of not calling attention to her labors for honors sake but to” labor as unto the Lord” for His approval alone. As pastor I feel that many more should enjoy the blessings that are being bestowed as the Lord shows his favor upon this very modest church body hence this updated website ministry.

Please come visit us soon so we can worship in spirit in truth with you and your family! We have a growing vision of sharing the Gospel of a Resurrected Life in Christ in our community and the world. We believe the Lord will add to our assembly daily as needed for us to fulfill His work if we will only seek His will and follow the bidding of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

Whether you are looking for guidance, spiritual truth, or a church home please consider calling upon us to find a real and sincere experience missing in so much of the Christian community today! Until then visit this website frequently to gain spiritual insights and see faith in action as we share our work and vision in Christ.

In Christ’s Love,
Pastor Stephen Thompson
