The Role: Worship Pastor

Blue Valley Church Antioch CampusMeet Blue Valley Church:

What We Believe

We believe that the Bible reveals the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.  For that reason, Southern Baptists like us have summarized our biblical convictions in The Baptist Faith and Message.  While Southern Baptists are not a creedal people, requiring churches or individuals to embrace a standardized set of beliefs, we are a confessional people.  The Baptist Faith & Message represents the confessional consensus of "certain definite doctrines that Baptists believe, cherish, and with which they have been and are now closely identified" (BF&M, preamble)

What to Expect

You'll find a wide spectrum of attire on both campuses, so come dressed in whatever is comfortable for you.  Regardless of which campus you choose to visit, you'll find clearly designated parking for guests and friendly greeters available at every door ready to assist you in finding your way around.  Our services run approximately 70 minutes and the content is more or less identical on both campuses service to service.  Each service includes an offering, but we don't expect our guests to contribute.  We consider your attendance a gift to us and ask only that you give us contact information when you are comfortable in doing so.  This will allow us to give you information about our church and a small gift.

In addition to Worship services on both campuses at 9:30 and 11:00a, we have Sunday School at Antioch and Ridgeview for all ages at 9:30 and 11a.

Blue Valley Church GatheringWhat it's Like to Live in Overland Park, KS: 

Overland Park, Kansas is a vibrant city located just outside of the bustling metropolitan area of Kansas City. Visitors can find plenty to do in Overland Park, from outdoor activities like hiking and biking among its beautiful parks to shopping and dining at one of its many restaurants, boutiques, and cafes. The city also boasts numerous cultural attractions, such as theaters and galleries, as well as an array of seasonal events and festivals. With its diverse population, vibrant nightlife, and friendly locals, Overland Park provides an exciting place to live.  Blue Valley, also based in Overland Park, operates 20 elementary schools, nine middle schools, five high schools, and one alternative high school in the city.

Kansas City is a large, prosperous, self-sufficient and culturally rich city located astride the Missouri River. The downtown area and most of the population are on the older Missouri side, filled with shaded neighborhoods and mixed development. For the past 20 years the big growth has been on the Kansas side to the southwest in suburbs like Overland Park, Lenexa, and Shawnee.

The attractive downtown boasts museums and architectural attractions, including modern buildings and restorations of older sites such as the 1914 Union Station. More recently, a major urban redevelopment and renewal effort has taken hold, anchored by a new Federal Reserve and IRS complex expected to employ 7,000 and a new headquarters for financial services giant H&R Block, plus a new entertainment district. These developments and more renovations of attractive older buildings are adding life to the area, and there is also a significant push towards residential units in the city.
