WVCN - Warwick Valley Church of the Nazarene is located in
the heart of Orange County New York.
WVCN organized for its
first service on December 5, 1965, in the basement of Tom &
Mildred Crawford's home on Claire Ann Drive (just around the
corner from our current location on State Route 94 N).
In those early years, names like Crawford, Vealey, Stark,
Long, Hogancamp, Ryan, Thayer, Johnson - all became
synonymous with this young, upstart church.
official pastor, Rev. Wylie Rudolph, came for just under a
year before returning to Eastern Nazarene College. But soon
after the church saw regular pastoral assignments:
In 2005 WVCN
had its first woman senior pastor in Debbie Berman and in
2007 Pastor Bruce Barnard arrived.
Currently Pastors Stephen and Christi Bennett serve as co-pastors.
