Pastoral Staff Updates 2016

Please give a warm Minnesota welcome to new Senior Pastor Rick Summy and his wife Christine Summy this weekend. Volunteers are taking photos to help him get to know names and faces. Pastor Rick will be installed September 24 & 25, 2016 at all services.

Pastor Ron Olson will be concluding his interim service with SOTV effective October 5, 2016.  His final weekend in worship is scheduled for October 1-2, 2016.  Pastor Ron will be available between services in the Great Hall to greet the congregation and say good-byes. We have been grateful to Ron for his ministry and dedicated service to SOTV.  We will miss him greatly and wish Ron all the best as he moves on to his next journey.

Pastors Maggie Novak and Wendy Steger will continue their interim status with SOTV for a time. They will continue to work with the pastoral staff as we transition Pastor Rick Summy into his Senior Pastor role. We are grateful for their continued dedication to the ministry of Shepherd of the Valley.  We will continue to keep the congregation updated as to the interim status of Pastors Maggie and Wendy.

Kitchen Staff Needed

The return of Sunday Breakfasts are dependent upon a fully staffed Kitchen and Hospitality structure of paid staff and volunteers.  We are working hard to fill the staff positions of Kitchen Coordinator, Kitchen Assistant, and Barista. Please view the full job descriptions on our Employment page and spread the word to qualified candidates.

Both Staff and Volunteer roles are key to the success of the breakfast and fellowship ministries. Once we are adequately staffed, we will resume Sunday Breakfast and the schedule will be communicated. Questions may be directed to Thank you for your patience!
