Hunt Valley Church began in the spring of 1990 when a dozen people gathered in a living room to pray and plan for a new church in the Hunt Valley areas of Baltimore.
In June of 1992, current Senior Pastor Frank Boswell joined the church, bringing in fresh vision and strategy for the church. Beginning from contemporary approaches to worship, the church experienced much progress over the next several years, which included a space that would serve as home for the next five years. These years were devoted to building staff and putting the Christian way of life into practice through various ministries, particularly mission trips, holiday food baskets for the poor, and restoring old homes in Baltimore. HVC opened its current building on 22 acres in 1997. As a result of steady growth, a satellite location across the highway was created in 2006 for offices and youth ministry space, and the children’s wing was updated in an inviting and creative way. Growth has continued at even faster pace, and the church has embarked on an expansion process to both bring the campuses together and add additional ministry space. After more than 25 years, with hearts full of gratitude for what God has accomplished, the church looks forward with hope, and an unyielding commitment to preserving Christ’s church, advancing His message and ministry.
