note from pastor shane

It’s hard to believe it has been almost 15 years since MVF Church began. In many ways, it has gone by so fast, and yet we believe this is just the beginning. We believe God’s work has just begun at MVF Church and it is our prayer that He will continue to use us in powerful ways for generations to come. For this to happen we need to continue to take steps of faith forward to make a greater impact on the families and neighborhoods within Heber, the Wasatch Back, and beyond.  

We believe God has called us to some bold steps. A few years ago, as we saw the Heber Valley and surrounding areas growing, we knew we were unable to facilitate the growth of new people that God was bringing through our doors. We needed to expand the facility to minister to these people and we believed that God would honor these bold steps. It has been a long and difficult road throughout the building process, but we see the end just around the corner. We believe that if we continue faithfully pursuing His call that we will see the building complete and we will see many more people come to a saving relationship with Jesus and grow in their relationship with Him.  

Now more than ever our world needs churches that will not shrink back from sharing the gospel message of love and hope in a time when the world has lost so much of both. This has been a difficult time to build, and we have faced our share of setbacks, but God is faithful, and we continue to see Him at work through the process. Expanding our facility and answering the call to go into all of Utah and beyond to preach the gospel are big faith steps. These steps can only be accomplished if we all prayerfully seek God’s direction and work together. It is my prayer that you will join me in prayerfully asking God what He is asking of you in these steps of faith. Together, let’s submit ourselves to Him to see how He calls us to generosity and sacrifice. We are almost there, let’s work together and see God do something bigger than any of us to produce fruit far beyond what we could ever imagine.   

giving all to love all

MVF Church is all about giving all to love all – everything we do extends

from this. We love God and people, period. 

MVF Church is all about giving all to love all – everything we do extends from this. We love God and people, period. Each week, people are finding their way to MVF Church, discovering a growing, vibrant church, and becoming a part of a revolution of hope – a hope they want to share with their families, friends, and neighbors. But we have a challenge. We need more space to accommodate the growth and reach the next generation of Jesus followers. We need to establish new Christ-centered, grace-based campuses across Utah to reach those who are far from God. We need to partner more with our friends in Honduras and elsewhere to spread the Gospel throughout the world. In order to bring the love of Jesus to our hurting world, we need to be willing to give all to love all – here, there, and beyond.

we need leaders

We need leaders and partners to step forward and continue the task of turning ordinary people into extraordinary Christ-followers. Are you intentional about growing in Christlikeness, involved in ministering the Gospel, invested in further- ing God’s kingdom, and inviting of those who need the love of Jesus? This project will require all who call MVF Church their church family to stand together as one to put “others first,” recognizing that our generosity and sacrifice are simply a response to Jesus’ transforming love at work in our own lives.

grace of giving

Everyone who calls MVF Church

his or her church home has unique gifts,

talents, abilities, and resources to contribute.

As we are called to live generously, God is

asking each one of us to give proportionally to

the vision of MVF Church. Please prayerfully

consider what God is asking of you.


MVF Church has a strong foundation built on faith and generosity. We have
been a church that is committed to going beyond the four walls of our building and reaching people for Christ. We have made a tremendous impact on our community, providing a welcoming atmosphere for worship, fellowship, and life- changing Bible teaching that builds strong families, mends marriages, and brings hope to the hurting. While our history is encouraging, our future is exciting. The opportunities for impact are limitless. Today, all of us need to prayerfully commit both to MVF Church’s future and our mission to reach the world with Christ’s love. We are asking each person who calls MVF Church his or her home to pray this prayer...

“Jesus, please give me your heart for people who don’t know you yet. Open my heart to courageously do whatever it takes to show them your transforming love. Open my hands to a lifestyle of giving that reflects your heart and brings hope to the world.”

frequently asked questions

Will this result in additional debt?

We expect that there will be additional debt accrued due to the building project; however, even with the projected additional debt, we are well within healthy expense ratios based on 2022’s budget (assuming no further growth). Our goal is to raise as much money as we can through an additional God-honoring two-year vision campaign that will enable us to continue to pursue God’s vision for this church, while minimizing the additional debt accrued.

Is the building really too small for our current needs?

Although we have added an additional service on Sunday to accommodate the

growth in our worship center, our children’s ministry and parking lot are currently

too small for who we are today and this will also limit further growth.

How will we utilize the existing building?

We are planning to convert the existing building entirely into an area for our children’s

ministry. This will enable us to have additional classroom space for our kids,

as well as provide a layer of security by limiting traffic to the children’s area.

Who is guiding this process and making the decisions?

Our Board of Shepherds, alongside the help of expert advisors, inside and outside

the church, have researched the key items of our vision campaign. This group of

individuals prayerfully seeks God’s direction for this project and beyond.

How will the construction of a new building help us reach more people?

Although Mountain View has a long-held value for raising up families in Christ, our

current building does not reflect this value! Our children’s area is not designed for

classroom teaching specific to the different age groups. The new building will help

provide purpose built for the next generation. By utilizing the existing building

completely for children’s ministry, we will be able to add additional classroom space

to allow us to reach new families and the next generation with the hope of Jesus.

The new structure will allow us to accommodate the significant amount of growth

we are seeing, allowing us to expand our community integration and outreach


What is the timing of the project?

Our desire is to break ground on the new building by the end of this summer, with

the intent to have a functional facility by summer of 2019. We will continue to research

how to best accomplish this goal with the guidance of our expert advisors.

Why now?

Our church leadership has spent the last several years prayerfully seeking God’s

direction and leading on what is next for Mountain View. We believe that this congregation

is ready to move forward and to give all to love all in an effort to share the

love of Christ to the Wasatch Back and beyond.
