Pastor Barry Philbeck has more than fifteen years of pastoral experience and has been pastor at Love Valley during this time. He has a Bachelors degree in Biblical Studies.
Under Pastor Philbeck's leadership, God has grown Love Valley Baptist Church. The Church has experienced growth each year in all phases of church life. The Sunday School attendance averaged thirty-five when he first came to Love Valley Baptist Church and in just three months the attendance grew to over one hundred. The church presently averages over five hundred in Sunday School. The church has averaged fifty plus baptisms per year. This would not have been possible had it not been for God's grace.
During these fifteen years the church has experienced a warm and caring fellowship among the congregation due to Pastor Philbeck's love of God and the church family as well as his compassionate leadership.
Pastor Philbeck and his wife Mrs. Jenny have two children, B.J. and Chelsey. Each member of the Pastor's family is faithfully involved in all aspects of the church. Specifically, B.J. plays the piano for the Youth Choir and various groups in the church. Chelsey also plays the piano and sings in various groups in the church, and is active in the Bus Ministry.
