The Pastor Search Team Is Pleased to Present John C. Majors and His Wife Julie

John C. and Julie Majors both grew up in Kentucky and met in college. They were married in September of 1999. They joined the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) where they served until 2019. They have since served with Global Service Network, teaching on marriage, family and equipping parents to pass on their faith to their children. John C. graduated from Phoenix Seminary in 2008 with a Master of Divinity with Highest Honors. They have three children, John Isaac (12th grade), Caroline (6th grade), and Schaeffer (3rd grade). John’s hobbies are reading and cycling. Julie enjoys cooking and teaching others about food and nutrition.

His name will likely be familiar to many, as he grew up at Valley View and is the son of John A. & Pam Majors. John C. has served full time in ministry for twenty-three years as an evangelist, in student ministry, as a ministry assistant, as a missionary, and as a leader at the executive level of an international para-church ministry. He has led large teams with million dollar budgets and managed project timelines. He has spoken extensively in churches, conferences, men's retreats, and student events, and taught seminary level courses. He and Julie have taught on marriage and family at Weekend To Remember Conferences. Most recently, John worked with Global Service Network and Seeds Family Worship writing, speaking and developing family discipleship programs for families and churches to use in the home to learn God’s Word together.

Two verses that have guided John C.'s life and calling are "He must increase, but I must decrease.” John 3:30 ESV and  “And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me." Luke 9:23 ESV.

    God Calling John C. Home To Valley View

    “For the last ten years, equipping parents with Christ-centered resources has been a huge burden of mine. On June 20th, while sitting in church in Little Rock, I became overwhelmed with gratitude for being a part of a church that gives such a huge emphasis to knowing God's Word, following God's Word, and loving Christ, and sharing in the burden of passing on their faith to the next generation. That sense of gratitude turned to a deep thankfulness for the rich heritage that had been given to me through Valley View. I thought back to the people that invested in me - Sunday school teachers, youth workers, friends, pastors, the men and women I so admired. It was because of their love for Christ and their faithfulness that from a young age I was memorizing Scripture and learning God's Word.

    As I was sitting in church giving thanks, I had this overwhelming sense of one phrase: ‘Go do that at Valley View.’ The church that has meant so much to me and that has invested so much in my life, go there and invest and be a part of continuing that rich legacy. Of all my ministry experiences, there has been nothing as personally enriching and rewarding as being a part of Valley View. It is such an overwhelming privilege and honor to be called to serve as Pastor at a place that has meant so much to me.”
