On March 18th they sold their home and 2 days later, without a job or any earthly rhyme or reason, were on their way to their new home. They had been in the Charleston area for about a month and were still unsure as to why, but after much prayer, tears, counsel, and more prayer, and with the much appreciated help and counsel of Pastor Richard Perea of Calvary Chapel of Charleston, God confirmed to Vic and Melanie that He had brought them across the country to plant a church in Summerville, SC.
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned through my service unto the Lord and my many years of exhaustive study of the word, it’s that God’s call doesn’t always make sense to us, but if we just trust Him, demonstrate our faith by walking into the unknown, He is ALWAYS faithful and true to His promises.
I am both honored and humbled that God has chosen me to pastor this church. My family and I are excited to be here and look forward to serving the people of Summerville for many years to come” -- Pastor Vic
Our Journey to South Carolina
Vic and Melanie moved to Summerville on April 1, 2014 from Las Vegas, Nevada where they served for 13 years at Calvary Chapel Green Valley. Vic is an accomplished musician/singer and was the worship pastor there for 3 ½ years. Vic and Melanie have been married for 19 years and have 4 children, Dustin, Victoria, Alexa, and Cameron.
January of 2014, Vic felt the prompting of the Holy Spirit to move his family from Las Vegas (his home of 19 years) to Charleston SC. Although they had no idea what the Lord had in store for them, or why He was moving them there, they still felt it necessary to step out in faith and obey His command, and to believe that He would give them the provision once they arrived in Charleston.
