Our mission is to express the transforming power of Jesus Christ by GOING to the community of Donora, PA, 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 Donora “Take Root in Christ and Bear Fruit in Life.”

GOING

GOING

The Valley Remnant Church will be founded on evangelistic principles. As we follow the commands of the Great Commission, we will live life inside of the community of Donora, PA. We will have an outward focus toward the people around us. It is a priority that we are GOING into the community and doing our best to meet the felt needs of the people.
SOWING

SOWING

As we are GOING, we will be SOWING the seeds of the Gospel. We will commit ourselves to telling people about how God sent His Son into the world to save people from their sin. We will not shrink back from telling people about the grace of God and His willingness to save a remnant out of this world to Himself. We will show the people of the community that they are made in God’s Image and that they have a value and an ability to live for something greater than themselves. ​
GROWING

GROWING

As we gather weekly, we will be GROWING in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. We will participate in worship through praying, singing Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, reading the Word of God, hearing expositional sermons, and administering the ordinances of the Lord’s Supper and Baptism by full emersion. We will be dedicated to the education of believers in hopes to raise biblically qualified Elders and Deacons who will be missionaries that will continue in the process of GOING, SOWING, and GROWING the Mid-Mon Valley or wherever the Lord may choose to send His people.
