Executive Pastor



Vale Church is presenting one of the most exciting next level opportunities in the midwest. Pastor Ted Max and his team have built a culture of authenticity, integrity, honesty and a relentless commitment to pursuing Kingdom R.O.I. in all that they do. Going to work is the best part of their staff’s day, and they love doing ministry together. Their church is going to the next level not only in their home base of Bloomington-Normal, Illinois, but also with the renovation of a 30,000 sq foot facility in Peoria where Vale multi-site is officially launching this fall.

Vale has grown from 500 to almost 2,500 in just the last five years and things don’t seem to be slowing down. The Executive Pastor who is brought into this team is going to have a blast developing the strategy, team and structure to take Vale into the future!


Church Description *

Vale Church is a dynamic church birthed in Bloomington, Illinois. It is a church with 60+ year roots that has experienced explosive growth over the past five years. Vale Church is a church on the move. On an average weekend, you will experience a welcoming environment, engaging teaching, and excellent worship. Since 2013 Vale Church has been making huge strides to reinvent and redefine itself within the community. It has seen tremendous growth and dramatic impact on people’s lives.

The church is known in the community for its missional philosophy. The staff is young and eager. This church is doing what others will not do in their community to reach those others will not reach. They believe reaching their community goes beyond our 4 walls and actually means getting their hands dirty to reach our community. Vale Church partners with several Christian organizations in town to reach people in ways that alone Vale could not reach. It is not about making Vale’s name great, but about making Jesus known.
