In 2015, the DeGonia family moved from Philadelphia to Bristol, PA. In 2016, Chris and Rochelle felt the call to start a church.
"At the time, we were serving in a church in Norristown, where we were members for about thirteen years. We served as leaders in several ministries, including youth and music. In 2017, we followed the leading of God and started Bristol Worship Center. God has a plan for this area, and we are honored and humbled that God is allowing us to be a part of that plan."
Chris and Rochelle have been married for 20 years. During this wonderful union, God has blessed them with three incredible, God-loving kids. Their youngest is a precocious 10 year-old. Their oldest is a 16 year-old science buff. Their daughter is a talented, 15 year-old artist.
"Ministry is done as a family. Our kids are an active part of completing the plan that God has called us to. "
As a family, they like to relax by fishing, camping, bike riding, or just hanging out together for a game night.
