Our Leadership

chappellJohn & Jen Chappell

John and Jen started Roc City Church in the fall of 2012. They have a passion to see people who wouldnt normally feel comfortable in church fit in. John and Jen both attended Elim Bible Institute. Jen also studied Business Administration at SUNY Brockport. John interned right out of college at New Harvest Church in Myrtle Beach, SC. His school mandated internship soon turned into a full time paid position. A few years later he received a position in his hometown of Virginia Beach as the Middle and High school pastor at Vineyard Community Church.

John and Jen both share a passion for the next generation. Although they love youth, they also knew God was calling them to church plant. Once their family started growing, they decided to move to Rochester NY for two reasons- 1) to be closer to family and 2) to start a church! Who could resist the snow and garbage plates?! John and Jen currently reside in Greece with their two children, Judah and Brooklyn.
