Jonathan & Rebecca Burtram


Six years ago Rebecca and I would have never dreamed we would be planting a church in Charlottesville.  We were struggling in our lives, in our marriage, and even in our faith.  We had reached a point where we knew God would have to do a miracle in our lives or everything was going to crumble down around us.  At our worst, we discovered God at his best.  He brought healing, restoration, and wholeness back to our lives.  As we look back at our journey, we are astounded at how faithful God was in the midst of our unfaithfulness.  God gave us our own redemption story and planted in our hearts the seeds of his Redemption Church.

We now live and minister with the deep passion to reveal and connect other people to the power of God’s redeeming grace.
