NAVIGATING OUR CAREERS, BUILDING OUR SPIRITUAL LIVES
Los Angeles is the entertainment capital of the world. This city is filled with determined and ambitious dreamers and attracts talented individuals from around the globe. L.A. and the talented, ambitious people that embody it, help drive the global economy and global pop culture emphasizing innovation and accomplishment.
In the midst of this competitive and sometimes cutthroat environment, The Valley Church strives to provide a place for single professionals to build their spiritual lives, navigate their careers, and develop lasting relationships
