Pastor & Staff

Barry E. Philbeck


Pastor Barry Philbeck has twenty-six years of pastoral experience, all of which have been at Love Valley Baptist Church. 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. This would not have been possible had it not been for God’s grace.

During these twenty-four 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.
