It is nearly impossible to give credit to every single name and face of those who come together that work behind the scenes to form what Valley First Assembly of God is today. Each staff member works over a different area of ministry to spread the message of the gospel with the purpose in mind to reach people where they are, develop relationships and show them the love of Jesus Christ.

PASTORS JOHN JR. AND NATALIE ELDRIDGE

SENIOR PASTORS

Graduates of South Western Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, Texas in 2005, John and Natalie started their ministry in the field of Student Ministries and Church Building/Administration with the vision to penetrate the culture with Word of God through church planting and equipping the body of Christ to go out and do the work of the ministry.

 With over 20 years of ministry experience, the Eldridges have helped in A/G churches such as The Bridge Church and Church of the Harvest as staff.

 In 2007, they received the call from God to plant their first church, Contact Ministries Center to reach the people of the Valley,Alabama area. Since then, they are the senior pastors of what is now Valley First Assembly of God and working towards their next church plant for the upcoming future. reveldridge@yahoo.com

MARTHA RICHARDSON

OFFICE SUPPORT

Office administration is the backbone behind our ministry. Without proper organization, accountability and bookkeeping support, we wouldn’t be able to use proper resources that are so desperately needed for the ministry work in the Valley area—and Martha ensures that happens.

 ANNE BULLARD

WOMEN’S DIRECTOR

Our women’s ministry group is geared as a small group environment for women of all ages and life circumstances to gather together to build friendships, share life experiences and encounter God through study and application of Scripture.  Anne has a servant’s heart and passion for seeing women discover God’s purpose and plan for their lives. Under her direction, women can come together to listen and lift one another up through the study and the deepening of relationships with other women for fellowship and accountability.
