The Name

 In Valley Rise Church

The Name

There’s a lot in a name, we went through countless hours and days praying and trying to figure out what God wanted to name this vision He had put in our hearts. One morning while i was praying he brought to mind a verse someone had written me in a letter years earlier. 

Isaiah 40:3-5

A voice of one calling:

“In the wilderness prepare

    the way for the Lord[a];

make straight in the desert

    a highway for our God.[b]

Every valley shall be raised up,

    every mountain and hill made low;

the rough ground shall become level,

    the rugged places a plain.

And the glory of the Lord will be revealed,

    and all people will see it together.

For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

I immediately knew Valley Rise was the name of the vision in my heart. We don’t want to be a church that only walks with people in the valley’s of their lives. We want to be a church that takes those valleys and elevates them to a whole new level. We want to be a place that takes things that may have been hard in the past and makes them easy. We want to change people’s perspective on life.
