Randal Lanthripe is the founding and Senior Pastor of Church in the Valley. In 1987, Randal and his wife, Cindy, founded Church in the Valley in Diamond Bar, California. Church in the Valley has been a member of the 17:6 Network since its formation in 2005.
The 17:6 Network has been crucial for the development of the people in my congregation and staff. Our connections to the other churches in 17:6 has helped us make strides toward becoming a life changing church. The opportunity for Church in the Valley staff and members to connect with other staff and members in 17:6 churches through conferences, mission trips and other activities of the 17:6 Network increases momentum toward the vision and mission God has given. The camaraderie spurs us to a greater effort in life and ministry roles back home. I don’t know where our church would be without the 17:6 Network’s encouragement and training opportunities over the years. – Randal Lanthripe
Alex Barrett is Executive Pastor of Church in the Valley and has served on staff since 2006. He currently serves as Campus Pastor of Church in the Valley’s campus in Alhambra, California that was planted in 2013. Church in the Valley has been a member of the 17:6 Network since its formation in 2005.
Being a part of the 17:6 Network has greatly expanded my vision of personal ministry and leading others. Through practical training and encouraging friendships, I have received many resources and help in how to lead effectively. Our church has also greatly benefitted from NorthStar and Antioch training programs as it has given a tremendous amount of guidance and perspective on how to walk with God and lead others to do the same.
