Co-Pastor, Women’s Ministry Leader
Pastor Valena R. Metcalfe, originally from Gary, IN and currently resides in Northern Virginia for the last 23 years. Pastor Valena just celebrated her 5th Pastoral Anniversary at Greater New Life Christian Fellowship Church in Triangle, VA where she is Co-Pastor under the leadership of her husband, Bishop-Elect Samuel D. Metcalfe Jr. The ministry focus is “Where We Speak Life” imparting Wisdom and Knowledge to God’s people to advance the Kingdom of God. Pastor Valena not only ministers the Word of God, but she thoroughly enjoys ministering with the gift of laughter as a Christian Comedienne throughout the DMV, and her prayers were answered because the Lord also enlarged her territory to minister in other states such as FL, GA, IL, IN, MI, NC, PA, TX and West Virginia. Comedienne Valena is also the Vice President of “The Living On Laughter Gospel Comedy Association” (LOLGCA) in Northern Virginia. Pastor Valena wears many hats, but her greatest accomplishment is being married for 33 years to her high school sweetheart Sam, which this union has produced 10 beautiful children, (5 girls and 5 boys) along with 8 precious grandchildren. Her favorite pastimes are cooking, reading, skating, cracking jokes and enjoying family time.
