Patrick Steed

Patrick is the worship pastor for VCC Augusta. He has been involved in worship for more than 30 years (yes, he’s THAT old), serving in a wide range of denominations and worship settings. Patrick oversees the music and arts ministry of VCC, including all audio/visual components. He has been at VCC since 2002, and has been married to his wife, Victorie, since 2014, and they have two dogs.

Vanessa Vannoy

Vanessa oversees the children’s ministry at VCC.  She worked in missions in France for seven years before moving to Augusta.  She has served in children’s and women’s ministry extensively and helped direct our yearly VBS programs.  Her calling is to equip and empower believers of all ages to serve Jesus.  Vanessa enjoys exploring new cultures through travel and relationships, but especially loves laughing and playing with her nieces and nephew.




Dusten and Casey Gorrell

Dusten and Casey serve as youth pastors at VCC.  They have two daughters and more chickens than you can count.  When not hanging out with the youth or family they can be found cruising on Dusten’s motorcycle or entertaining a house full of random church members who have gathered spontaneously.  Casey also serves as our church hostess, providing leadership for Sunday morning service teams.

Our Community

At VCC, we believe that church is not a function: it is a family. Our religion is only as alive as we are, the people that pursue it. So, rather than acting as an organization, we want to act as an organism. We have no time for casual contacts and meaningless formalities. We are a fellowship on an adventure towards the stuff of God. Church means worshipping God together, studying the Bible together, fixing our cars together, hiking together, eating together, playing together, praying together... enjoying the warmth of the Holy Spirit in all parts of our lives together, not just in appointed meeting times.
