Christ Chapel is a Church that wants to see the community changed by the love of God.
We are so glad you came by for a visit! You will find Christ Chapel to be a warm and inviting place for you and your family. We have loved being a part of leading this great body of believers for three decades and have found it to be a great place to raise a family and connect with great people.
As you come in and look around for the first time or perhaps even a return visit, our hope is that you will not only find our campus and programs to be inviting but that your spiritual life will be challenged to grow and become all that God has called you to be! We look forward to an opportunity to meet you face to face at one of our community events or perhaps in one of our services or small groups. Christ Chapel is a great place to call home!
Christ Chapel began as an extension campus of the Arlington First Assembly of God in early 1969. Initially begun as a home fellowship group, the church gained traction and expanded with the appointment of Rev. Jerry and Luara as its first pastors. The Qualls served Christ Chapel for seven years during which time the church grew and constructed its first sanctuary on Telegraph Road, Woodbridge. It was also during his tenure purchased the site where the current church building is located a magnificent act of faith that has provided dividends beyond anything then imagined.
Upon their departure from the Woodbridge area in 1976, the Qualls were replaced by the late Pastor Gary Jenkins and his wife Charlotte. Arriving during the height of the Charismatic movements of the 70’s, the Jenkins captured the ongoing spiritual wave and directed the church through a time of growth and development of the current Smoketown Road property where they constructed a multi-purpose worship center/gymnasium which was completed in 1985. After three years in the new facility, the Jenkins accepted an appointment in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and were succeeded in 1988 by current pastors, Bill and Lynna Roberts.
Pastor Bill and Lynna during their decades at Christ Chapel have been blessed by continuous growth and expanded ministry impact. They have overseen multiple building projects to include the construction of sanctuary followed by a second project which added additional classroom and ministry space. A few years later a third project added state of the art college and science classrooms and the most recently completed project added a “Next Generation” worship center to better meet the needs of young families.
Particularly noteworthy the Roberts era ministry has been the impact the church has had in nurturing unity amongst the Christian Community; its extensive investment in global missions; its effectiveness in providing multiple levels of assistance to the hurting and marginalized; its contribution to private Christian Education through the establishment of Christ Chapel Academy, a school that h has been honored multiple times as Prince William County’s finest private school; the establishment of a fully accredited Christian College (UVF) that now offers both undergraduate and graduate-level programs; and its continual presentation of the full-gospel message through its regular services to all age groups and through the presentation of major productions depicting the life and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. These are but a few of the contributions Christ Chapel has made to our community and the world since its inception. There is no doubt that – The VISION was given over 50 years ago LIVES-ON!
