Our mission is to express the transforming power of Jesus Christ by GOING to the Mid-Mon Valley, SOWING the seeds of the Gospel, and GROWING in the love of God and our neighbours.
Located along the Monongahela River, about 40 miles south of Pittsburgh, PA, stands an old, forgotten steel town that is ready for revival: called Donora, PA. Once filled with the hustle and bustle of the steel industry, and a thriving economy Donora, PA is now filled with decreasing population, deteriorating infrastructure, and debilitating stagnation. When you walk through the main streets of Donora, PA you can feel the busyness of the past – empty buildings and dilapidated factories – and that mindset carries throughout the people. Any Donora, PA native, who experienced the town in its heyday, will express strong sentiments about the then-grandeur of the town, while also dismissing its current derelict state.
Almost every corner of the streets of Donora, PA has a dilapidated or dysfunctional church – Catholic, Presbyterian, Baptist, Orthodox, Methodist, Charismatic, Satanic and more. Thus the need for the full gospel, true Christian community, and servant leadership by example is strong. Donora, PA is begging to be filled with an outpouring of God’s grace by the work of His saints – and The Valley Remnant Church seeks to be one of the means the Lord uses to rescue His people. The vision of The Valley Remnant Church is to plant a Christ-centred, multi-cultural church that glorifies God, cultivates Christian community, and by the grace of God, commissions others to do the same. We want to see the people of The Mid-Mon Valley “Take Root in Christ and Bear Fruit in Life.”
