Monty Montana

Monty Montana currently serves as the Young Families Pastor at Valley Baptist Church in Bakersfield. Monty holds a degree in Applied Theology from California Baptist University and is slowly working his way through graduate studies(and will likely graduate when Jesus returns!) Monty has been preaching since the age of 17 and views our state as a ripe mission field full of gospel opportunity. Monty and his wonderful wife Hannah have been married for 5 years and together have 3 wonderful children.  In his free time Monty enjoys camping, reading, working on cars, and chasing his kids around the home.

Fun fact about Monty: before he felt God calling him to vocational ministry, he originally hoped to pursue a career in standup comedy…this past career goal tends to come out in his preaching!
