History

In the spring of 1978, desiring to obey the great commission, a handful of young but committed Christians moved from the Kansas City Area to Columbia in order to establish a ministry on the MU campus. Their goal was to communicate the Good news of salvation in Jesus Christ with university students. Introducing others to faith in Christ was only part of their plan. They also worked to prepare new believers for effective ministry so that even more lives might be changed through the message of new life in Christ.

A young church was established with members of committed to serving JC by living their lives in such a way that others might see and understand the love of God. Many changes have taken place in the years that followed

A the church grew, the focus of ministry broadened beyond the college campus to include the greater community at large. In June of 1988, the Lord miraculously provided our current building facility, well suited to the needs of growing church. Our church was renamed ‘Valley View Community Church to reflect our current location in the valley View subdivision.

Major transition in the history of VVCC include a church planting team sent off in 1990 to St. Peters, MO (St Louis Area) expanded staff for a number of ministries including children’s programs Junior and senior high students, campus, among others and a building expansion project completed in early 1999

In the fall of 2000, VVCC began a service on campus specifically designed for college students and twenty-something singles. By 2005 a campus church was planted continues to serve students at the University of Missouri. We continue to be committed to seeing the Great Commission fulfilled and raising up disciples and leaders to serve in the Kingdom of God.
