PV has 22 elders, 67 deacons, 8 ministers, and 12 missionaries.  This leadership team is focused on growing not only in relationships, but also in the number of people served both within the congregation and within the community.

Each member continues to be encouraged to be actively involved in one or more of the many ministries, which address various needs of the congregation and the community. We continue to coordinate the outreach efforts of spreading the good news of Jesus Christ.

Missions and spiritual growth have been key components of the congregation’s emphasis throughout its history through evangelism and missions.
