Precision Valley Baptist Church is a Southern Baptist Church that was founded in 1978 by Pastor Aubrey Jones. What started out as a few gathering in an old school bus continues to grow today, despite Vermont being one of the least churched states in America. This is, in large part, due to our affiliation with and support from the Southern Baptist Convention, Baptist Convention of New England and the Green Mountain Baptist Association.
Precision Valley Baptist Church is located on a beautiful ten acre parcel of land at 67 Route 106 in North Springfield, Vermont. In recent years there's been many upgrades done to our property thanks to our partnerships across the country. Inside the church, we've added a large sanctuary, remodeled kitchen and expanded bathroom to include a shower.
Behind the church, set back on a beautiful wooded lot, is a 3-4 bedroom, 2 bath, remodeled ranch-style parsonage with large garage.
The mission house also sits behind the church which can sleep up to eight people.
