Plug into one or more of several of our ministries here at Pine Valley Church. We’ve got something for everyone!

Audio-Video Tech and Media

Communicating the gospel has always used media that is appropriate and relevant to the culture and the time. With a message that is important to tell, contemporary media is the means of getting it to today’s people. Pine Valley Church has a vast and growing arsenal of media resources in-house.

• Live sound, live recording, staging and lighting design
• Electronic graphics and digital signage production
• Audio post and mastering
• Video acquisition and post production

If you have experience in any of these or would like to learn, contact Terry Prothero and come on board.

Men’s Ministries


“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” – Proverbs 27:17.

Whether you want to strengthen your walk with Jesus Christ, become a better husband and dad, or build relationships with other men who are learning what it means to follow after God — or you are prepared to take the blessings you have known and build into the lives of other men — that’s what Men’s Ministries are all about. We want to encourage you to get involved. Currently, we have different meetings around Bayfield and Durango. Check the church calendar and come be a part of what God is doing.



God has given Pine Valley Church a deep passion for missions. Supporting and taking part in missions is truly a call on all of us. We have so many mission fields from right in our backyard to around the world. Pine Valley is currently supporting approximately twenty-four missionaries and mission projects around the globe and we want to do our best to connect you with the ministry and impact of these missionaries internationally.

Music and Worship Teams


The music at Pine Valley Church is a large part who we are. The sound of worship lifted to God is deep in our DNA and it is a gift and a privilege we take seriously. Lisa Prothero, our music and worship director, has purposed to make a place for anyone with some basic skills and a commitment to be involved. It’s about heart, relationship, and self-improvement. And Lisa’s commitment to excellence and equipping her team members shows.
