WHO WE ARE

We’re glad you decided to visit our church’s website.  Whether you’re curious about a relationship with God or are a Christian who desires to experience God more deeply in your life, you’re important to us because you’re important to God.  We’d love to get to know you better.  

    Wherever you are on your spiritual journey and whatever your past or present circumstances, there’s a place for you here at Twin Valley Alliance. We’re certainly not perfect, but you’ll find Twin Valley Alliance Church to be a safe place to explore answers to your spiritual questions as well as a comfortable place where you can discover hope and a loving relationship with God and others.  Along the way, you will be able to enjoy meaningful, personal friendships as we grow together in our knowledge and love of Jesus Christ.
 
    Thank you for visiting; take your time, look around, and be sure to contact us with any questions you might have. We’d love to have you join us on a Sunday morning and see for yourself what God is doing here at Twin Valley Alliance Church!

"The only hope for enduring peace is Jesus Christ."

Meet Our Pastor

Pastor and Lynn 2021 for website.webp
Joel McGarvey
Lead Pastor

  Pastor Joel McGarvey and his wife Lynn came to Twin Valley Alliance in 2011 after serving for 15 years as missionaries in the countries of Peru and Argentina. 

 

     Both Joel and Lynn were raised in upstate New York and met while studying at Nyack College.  They have two adult children: Laura, recently married, and Daniel, a student at Messiah College. 

 

     Pastor Joel enjoys reading in his spare time and loves the game of soccer.  He also has an identical twin, but since he lives 250 miles away, you don’t need to worry about getting them mixed up. 

 

     Pastor Joel’s greatest joy in ministry is teaching the Word of God and seeing people grow in their faith.
