Mark Pitts

Senior Pastor


Mark has been our senior pastor since 1996. He was born in Owensboro, Kentucky, and spent most of his growing up years out in the country where his family raised quarter horses. He accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior his senior year of high school.  After high school he attended Murray State University to study construction engineering, but in the spring of his freshman year God dramatically called him into vocational ministry.

He met his wife, Nancy, in late 1983 and they married soon thereafter.  They have two wonderful children: Ryan, an Air Force pilot, and Sarah, whose husband is in the Army, currently lives at Fort Polk, LA with their beautiful granddaughter.


Larry Lane

Mission Action Pastor


Larry and his wife, Susan, have been members of VMBC since 1994 and have been involved in mission work since 1997. Larry accepted Christ as a youth and became interested in sharing the Gospel full time in 1989 and was ordained as a Deacon in Tucson in 1990.

As Mission Pastor, Larry believes that missions is a very rewarding way to serve our God, and to be in obedience to Acts 1:8 and the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20 to go and make disciples. Missions is not something a church does, it is something a church is.

In his free time, he enjoys reading, hunting, fishing, anything outdoors, and time alone with God, which he considers one of His great gifts.
