A movement of people bringing the hope of Jesus to the north DFW region through Harbors (Campuses) and Hope Carriers (People).

We believe that God is inviting Valley Creek to move from being a church for a city, to a church for a region. We want to create a harbor, or a campus, within approximately a 20 minute drive for everyone in the North Texas Region. Each campus is a harbor of hope where people who have been beaten by the storms of life can come to experience the presence of Jesus and have their identity, relationship, and purpose restored. As they start to receive the hope of Jesus, we can then send them back out into the world to carry hope to others.
We currently have four campuses, and we believe God is inviting us to double-down by moving from four to eight over the next three to four years. In each of these new areas, we see a great opportunity for hope and already have a significant number of Valley Creek Families who can help us launch each campus. Like Jesus, we want to move into the neighborhood and create multiple opportunities for every individual to see and experience the hope of Jesus.
Our Denton Campus launched in 2014 and has been growing ever since. They just moved to expand to four services every Sunday. They’re located at the intersection of I-35E and 288/Teasley, across from the Golden Triangle Mall.
Our Flower Mound Campus is our original campus, our broadcast campus, and currently contains our central offices. It’s located just south of FM 407, between Dixon and Waketon Road, with entrances off of Dixon Road and Long Prairie Road/FM 2499.
Our Venue Campus meets inside “The Venue” at our Flower Mound Campus every Sunday. This is a full campus with live worship and a campus pastor.
Our Lewisville Campus launched in 2016, and is bringing hope to the city and the people of Lewisville. It’s located at the intersection of 121-Business and I-35E.
There are more than 50,000 students enrolled in UNT, TWU, and NCTC. We see a huge opportunity to reach and raise up the next generation of kingdom leaders.
Gainesville is the gateway to Texas. It is the largest city in the Red River Valley and will allow us to reach into the whole northern region of Texas.
As one of the top 10 fastest growing communities in DFW, the cities along the I-35W/377 corridor offer us a great opportunity to reach thousands of new people. This area is also the home of one of the largest groupings of Valley Creek Families anywhere in North Texas.
As we launch the first three campuses, we believe God will give us direction and timing for the fourth campus. Like always, we simply want to follow the Cloud and discover what God shows us along the way.
When you have been touched by the hope of Jesus, you can’t help but share His hope with others. We want to use our campuses (harbors) to develop people to be kingdom leaders (hope carriers). A hope carrier is someone who simply carries the hope of Jesus into the areas of life they already go everyday. Jesus has commissioned us to establish His kingdom, not just in the church, but in every area of life. Since Valley Creek is made up of people, not buildings, we already exist in thousands of locations. Our long-term future is to focus on intentionally equipping each person to simply release the hope of Jesus in the areas of life where they already have influence. Our desire is to see His kingdom come, His will be done, in every area of life.
I used to measure myself by likes and followers. But I knew there was more. So I’ve decided to do something different. I’m giving hope away, and I’m finding it for myself. I am a #HopeCarrier!

Dawn is bringing hope to her classroom! #HopeForEducation
I’m in high school. People don’t really expect much out of me. They think I’m too young to make a real difference. But I believe I have the power to bring hope to everyone I know. I am a #HopeCarrier!
Andrew is bringing hope to his school! #HopeForStudents

It’s time to pioneer; to take new ground together. We want to invite every Valley Creek Family to prayerfully consider making a two year commitment, above and beyond the tithes and offerings they already give, to help us bring the hope of Jesus to our region. This is a huge step of faith and will require all of us to ask, listen, and respond to the voice of God.
How do I ask, listen, and respond?
We ask and talk about this question all the time! Here’s a quick overview:
This is not a cost – it’s an investment. It’s an investment into people, Jesus’ church, the kingdom of God, and your eternal legacy. This investment will include:
Financial commitments will be given over a two year period on Commitment Weekend, which is February 17.
As we begin our Missional Move journey together, we follow the Cloud by faith. That means we will listen for the voice of God and continue moving forward one next step at a time. While some of our steps are clear, others are yet to be defined. Below are some questions we are still waiting for God to answer. And as we wait, we remain full of hope and confident of His goodness in the season ahead!
A commitment card is different from giving.
Filling out a commitment card is your way of letting Valley Creek know what you are committed to financially give over two years to the Missional Move.
Giving to the Missional Move can be done three different ways:
1. You can give in person at any of our campuses.
2. You can give via text message.
3. You can give online any time at valleycreek.org/give.
The first campus will launch when we have the building, resources, leaders, and serve teams ready to be a movement of hope for that city. Pray with us that these provisions will come quickly!
The launch order of our campuses depends on the timing of building, leaders, and serve team readiness. We are not seeking the locations in any specific order; instead, we are considering all viable building or land options in the North Texas region.
No specific building or location has yet been identified. If you know of, or are connected to a property that you would like to invest into this Missional Move, please contact us at email@example.com.
As each campus prepares for launch, we will announce opportunities to join the launch team. Until then, join a serve team at your local campus and bring hope to the community where you are planted. To find a serve team, go to valleycreek.org/serve or visit the Information Center at your campus.
With every Missional Move, we believe in sending our best. So as we wait for the locations to become available, we will continue to raise up our leaders to be well equipped as they lead a movement of hope. If you feel called into ministry and would like to be considered for the Valley Creek Staff, check out valleycreek.org/jobs for a list of current openings. If you’d like to speak to a staff member about a specific role or team, we’d love to hear from you – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Multiplying our campuses from four to eight will require a significant increase in centralized support. Our central offices will house the staff to generate the resources for all our campuses with consistency and excellence. It also keeps our team in unity, which is one of our highest values.
Missional Move #2 will launch in the fall. There is no additional financial commitment. Missional Move #2 will be about mobilizing our church as hope carriers in the areas of life. Begin to pray now for wisdom, opportunity, and favor to carry hope into every area of your life!
There is not a cost, there is an investment. An investment in people and the cities we will reach. For this missional move, an investment of $20 million is required to cover the costs of four campuses and central offices. We believe this will allow us to raise up 750 serve team members, 400 leaders, and bring hope into the lives of thousands of new people.
Yes – you can participate in the missional move by making a monetary commitment on February 17, 2019. You can also invest stocks, donate land, or contribute other assets. Simply email us at email@example.com, and we will gladly discuss those options with you.
For any other questions or further clarity, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We believe this is the greatest season our church has ever seen, and we are so glad you are here to join this journey with us! Let’s pioneer together, and take hope to the city and beyond!
