Wednesday first meeting of new year for Valley Pastors Network

The Valley Pastors Network, a group of ministers from throughout the area who desire to join together and work in unity to spread growth, prosperity and the message of Jesus Christ throughout the Ohio Valley, will hold their initial meeting of the new year in the coming days.

The group, which has nearly 30 clergy participants from across denominational lines, meets once a month for a time of fellowship, discussion, encouragement and prayer.

Its meetings are open to all area clergy, and all local pastors are welcome to attend.

The next meeting will be held at 8 a.m. on Wednesday at Word of Life Fellowship, 565 Lovers Lane, Steubenville.
