Val has been married to Pastor Ken since 1967 and they have 3 married children who have provided them with 5 precious grandsons ages 4 and under, which light up their lives. She has worked for the Palmdale School District for over 25 years and the last 20 years as a Library Media Technician.
Val was privileged to serve under the direction of the Director of Women’s Ministry at Grace Chapel, in Lancaster, as Special Events Coordinator for several years. She also led Women’s weekly Bible studies which gave her an insatiable desire for God’s Word.
In 2003 both Ken and Val were asked to join a small group starting a new church in Littlerock. It was extremely difficult for Val to leave the ministry and church family established at Grace Chapel. But out of obedience to God’s Word, and letting her husband lead, she reluctantly followed Ken to Littlerock, where the Lord opened their world to a bounty of blessing.
It is Val’s utmost privilege to serve the women of the greater Littlerock area at Cornerstone Church. Val says, “It has been one of the greatest blessings God has ever bestowed upon me to share God’s love, His faithfulness, and His Word with the women of this community. Whatever time and effort I have given them has been given back to me at least seven fold, in God’s blessings. I love these women and I love serving the Lord at Cornerstone. It is my hope that everyone will commit to being in God’s word daily, seeking him, because I know he will change their lives, as he has mine.”
