Jeff and Jennifer planted VCC in 2001 in their living room with ten people, a guitar and a Bible. The Millers have enjoyed 16 years of marriage and they have 4 children, Benjamin, Levi, Aedan, and Abbey. Jeff has a background in retail management and construction. He enjoys stringed instruments, eating, old books, playing Scrabble, trees, and peace and quiet. Jennifer enjoys nature and health and raising children. Jeff has said that one of the most important things that needed to be noted in his bio is he and Jennifer’s desire to place marriage, family and spiritual and emotional balance above commitment to ministry.
Patrick leads and oversees worship at VCC. He is a singer, guitarist, drummer, and songwriter. He has been at VCC Augusta since September of 2002, way back when there was no drum set or electric guitars, back when the church met in a daycare behind Waffle House. After a couple of weeks, he had a meal with Jeff at Chick-fil-A, and his life hasn’t been the same since. Patrick also works locally as an x-ray tech, and lately he has been smiling a lot.
Jewelia oversees the children’s ministry at VCC and has been part of the church since 2007. She has worked with children since 1995 in various roles, including Preschool Teacher, Early Interventionist, Music Therapist, and Piano Instructor. She has a Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy, and has worked with children of all ages with special needs in a variety of settings (hospitals, child care centers, therapy clinics). She and her husband, Jason, have two daughters, Imani and Nadia. The Jacobs place great value on fostering a healthy marriage and family. Their interests are music, education, healthy living, and the outdoors.
