Warwick Valley Church of the Nazarene

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.

The first 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:

Oliver Wirth
Thomas Long
Stephen Meade
John Borgal
Gary Wilson
Steven Creange
Adam Berman
Steve Shomo

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.
