HISTORY

God's faithfulness throughout the years

Throughout the years

Rogue Valley Fellowship was founded in 1992 by Dave and Joy Booye as a church plant of Trail Christian Fellowship. In the early years, the church met in a number of different spaces including a Campus Life building, a Seventh Day Adventist church, and finally settling in an industrial area on South Pacific Hwy. Over the next 20 years, RVF developed a reputation as a gospel-centered church with an emphasis on family and missions.

In 2011, Dave and the leadership sensed God was beginning something new: through prayer and the leading of the Holy Spirit, it was discerned that the current associate pastor Kenner Gotzman would move into the role of lead pastor. Over the next year, Kenner and the leadership continued to discern the extent of the “new thing” God was doing. During this time, God put a desire in our hearts and opened the doors for the church to move into the neighborhood of West Medford.

The first service was held on March 16, 2014 in Central High School, and we closed on the purchase of The Annex (church offices and community center) later that month. Over the past five years, through trial and error, we have sought to be a faithful presence and a prophetic witness of His kingdom. We look forward to what the Lord has in store for our church and community in the coming years.
