Like the spreading branches of a tree, we desire to continue our 60-year legacy of reaching wide with the love of Christ to bring life and hope to the world around us. For the Valley is a faith-filled vision to:

  • Bring hope and help to foster kids and families in our city.
  • Partner with likeminded churches to support their ministry.
  • Open new campuses in neighborhoods where our people live.

Thank you for your prayers, involvement, and partnership, enabling the tree of SBC to flourish as we continue making a transformational investment in our city.





  • At Gigi’s Cottage, 24 girls have experienced a safe Christian home where they are empowered to pursue their God-given purpose. Your partnership is supporting the staff and facilities, and your volunteer service is meeting practical needs and showing Christ’s love to the girls through gifts, meals, mentoring and more.
  • Each SBC campus is active in supporting kids and families impacted by foster care through our ministry partners. Through our 2023 Christmas Gifts for Kids effort, we are giving 1,800 gifts to foster children to make their Christmas special.
  • 75 SBC families are interested in or beginning the process to foster children; and nearly 900 attended our “Finding Your Place in Foster Care and Adoption” events to discover how they might get involved in fostering or volunteering.
  • Your For the Valley gifts help support Royal Family Kids Camp, a summer camp for foster kids, and Teen Reach Adventure Camp for foster teens. More than 150 youth experienced these life changing camp experiences in 2023.

  • Our active Foster, Kinship and Adoption Ministry is building community among parents who have adopted, fostered or who are raising a relative’s child. They enjoy a caring support group, luncheons, and Parents Night Out events.
  • As we further our efforts to support local churches, skilled staff and volunteer teams are engaging with local pastors and leaders to determine how we can help meet needs. More than $1.5 million has already been given to churches that meet the qualifications for assistance. Projects range from helping with building, facilities and equipment needs to meeting critical staffing needs.
  • As we lay the groundwork for our next SBC campus, we are investigating locations, clarifying organizational needs, and exploring communities where we might take our next steps. SBC Fountain Hills, our first campus as part of For the Valley, opened in April 2022 and is flourishing in their community!
