Powell%20family-medium

Senior Pastor - Bro. Mark Powell

Family:  God has graciously blessed me with a wonderful and loving family!  I am married to Tricia and we have three boys:  Ethan, Aaron, and Caleb.  Tricia is originally from Brandenburg and I grew up in south Louisville.

How Do I Relax & Have Fun:  I love to read...which I know doesn't exactly scream "fun" to most people, but I do enjoy it!  I also enjoy listening to music, watching sports, and occasionally going to the movies.

Favorite Music:  There is no way I could list all my favorite music here!  I grew up in the 80's, so most of the stuff I listen to comes from that era.  But, I keep up with modern stuff too, and I love Christian music of all varieties and styles!

Favorite Food:  Chocolate chip cookies, apple pie, cheeseburgers, pizza...this list could end up being longer than the one for music!

Ideal Vacation:  Any place where my family and I can just relax and enjoy time together.

Biblical Character:  Such a hard question!  The Scripture is so rich and full of people who trusted Christ.  If I had to pick, I'd say Abraham.  Or Joseph.  But I can't forget David.  Then there's Peter, and Elijah, and Paul, and...

What I Like About VVBC:  There is a genuine desire to love Jesus and serve Him by serving one another.  Valley View is a place where people are cared for, Christ is worshipped, and the Word is proclaimed.

The Usual Stuff:

  • I grew up in Louisville and went to Pleasure Ridge Park High School.
  • I got my Bachelor's degree from U of L.
  • I have a Master's of Divinity from Southern Baptist Theological Seminiary.
  • I've been in vocational ministry for more than 20 years, and Valley View is the third church I have served in.
