Welcome to Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley on the Central Coast of California! We're glad you decided to stop by our website and we welcome you to check out the wealth of information we have available here. Our goal is simple: to make Jesus known and that there is life and forgiveness in Him! We'd love to have you join us for a Sunday worship service any time. If there's any way we can be of service to you or your family, please let us know. We look forward to seeing you sometime soon!


Please join us on Sunday, February 10, 2019, to hear The Rev. Gerald L. Kovac speak about a ministry providing direct relief to the poor throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

Pastor Kovac will share personal witness about Food For The Poor's mission to care for the destitute as a means of living out the Gospel mandate to love one another.

Pastor Kovac was ordained for the SELC District of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod in 1965. He has served as a Chaplain for the Wisconsin Department of Correction and as Executive Secretary of the Mission Board of the SELC District. Before preaching on behalf of Food For The Poor, he also served as a pastor in St. Louis for 31 years.
