OUR HISTORY

WHEN DID VELOCITY BEGIN?

In 2013, Pastor Dean & Charlene Ralls founded Velocity Church with a small group of family and friends. We started meeting in the Coventry Clubhouse in York County. In 2014, we needed a larger space for children so we moved to Coventry Elementary School in York County. In 2015, we had the opportunity to acquire an actual church space so we started meeting in the Meyers Building in York County. In 2021, we needed more space for our growing church and acquired a lease for a building that could host over 150 people. We were blessed by a newly renovated 5,000 square foot facllity and a $200,000.00 renovation. We held our grand opening in September 2021. 

 

We are currently located on a highly visible, easily accessible area to those living in or near Route 17 in York County. Click here for directions.

 

WHY THE NAME, 'VELOCITY'?

The reason we named it Velocity is that we believe that when the Holy Spirtit comes upon a person he or she will expeieince a real life change. The Holy Spirit will not only transform you but will change everyone and everything around--this is from Acts 1:8. 

WHY YORK COUNTY?

Some may ask "Why York County"? Velocity has the potential to minister to those who live locally, serve in the military, and impact the lives of people around the world.  York county is

You are welcome at Velocity

the 5th largest populated area in the Commonwealth of Virginia with more than 180,000 people living within a 5-mile radius of the church. It is a growing area with approximately 3% projected growth increase in the next 5 years. Additionally, it is one of the top tourist destinations along the East Coast and home to one of the largest concentrations of military personnel in the United States. Finally, it is an economiclly stable community thanks to high tech firms such as Langley Research Center, Jefferson Labs, NASA and the Newport News Ship Building (Huntington Ingalls Industries). 

OUR CORE VALUES

Church in Yorktown VA

Velocity Church is a community of believers. What does the word community mean? We believe that together in fellowship we grow closer to God and to one another. The Bible speaks about how iron sharpens iron. This is why it is so important to have consisitent fellowship with other believers.

 

Velocity Church strives to be a church without walls. We invite anyone to come and expereince Jesus. He calls us to go outside the walls to reach the lost and the broken in our community. It is there that the lost will be found. Velocity Church makes an effort to be like the church from the book of Acts to see our city changed by reaching the lost and making disciples.

 

Velocity Church highly values relationships with one another. We look to grow through fellowship and ultimately growing closer to God. We value the word of God and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We look to extend grace to all of the lost and broken, and lead those with no hope to the hope of Jesus Christ.
