Jay Abramson announced in February that God is making it clear it's time for him to start a new phase of ministry. After nearly 30 years in ministry at Valley Community Baptist Church, including 25 years as Senior Pastor, he announced that he would be retiring in 2020.

The Senior Pastor transition process has begun and is going well. Read all about the background and next steps at our Senior Pastor Transition page.
