Charlyn Valencia

Mission & Mobilization Pastor

Charlyn Valencia currently serves as Mission & Mobilization Pastor, connecting the people of IBC to what God is doing locally and globally. Hailing from Massachusetts, she moved to Texas in 2014 to pursue her Masters in Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary. When she isn't planning the next global or local mission trip or building relationships with mission partners, you can find Charlyn hanging with her furry friend Coco (the friendliest schnauzer you will ever meet). She loves the Red Sox, Latin dancing, and traveling. Her favorite thing about working at IBC is being part of a community of believers that takes its role to love and serve its neighbors seriously. Her prayer for IBC? "That we would continue to engage with the nations every Sunday. I hope that we can get to a place where we're constantly hearing worship in different languages, seeing more people from different countries walking through our doors on Sunday mornings, and breaking bread with our neighbors who don't look like us."

Charlyn loves talking about: missions, Latin Culture, food
