Welcome to VR Church! We welcome you to experience a spiritual community in virtual reality. Everyone is invited! It doesn’t matter if you believe in God or not.
"We are working our way thru a book of the Bible, called Acts. I'm super excited about this new series because Acts is the reason why VR Church exists today. It's like the prequel of the church. Also, it's about POWER. We've been learning about divine love and our love for one another. And yes, while "the greatest of these things is love", God also wants us to have his power in our lives. I'm talking breakthrough, healing, and miracles. Get ready! God's power is coming to your life." ~Pastor D.J. Soto

What's Virtual Reality Church like? When you arrive at our service, you will have the opportunity to meet our welcome team. They will be happy to answer any questions you have. The service will include worship thru music and a thoughtful walk thru a chapter in the Bible, guided by one of our Pastors. At the end of the sermon, we encourage attendees to ask questions, make new friends, or simply hang out.
Who are the pastors?
Bismik is a youth pastor from Germany, a trained historian and philosopher (both a masters degree), a doctoral candidate and a metal band singer. At the age of 17, he experienced Jesus' saving power, which since then has become the anchor and goal of his life. His favorite VR game is Iron Wolf, because of his favorite movie "U96". His favourite beer is the good old franconian "Huppendorfer".
Believing that faith is renewed as people engage with the good news of God’s love on new technology platforms, D.J. Soto began preaching in the world of virtual reality in 2016. He is now the lead pastor of Virtual Reality Church, a church that is intended to be radically inclusive and consistent with Christianity’s long history of adapting to new forms of media. VR Church is the first church to exist entirely in virtual reality. Before VR Church, D.J. received a BA in Theology in 2000, and launched a multi-site campus for a mega-church in Pennsylvania. In 2016, DJ and his wife, Kari, created a new apostolic ministry to pioneer new churches across America in unusual places. Originally thinking they would plant physical churches, they soon realized a new vision to plant churches in virtual reality. DJ and Kari have five children, and they travel to spread the vision about faith in VR.
Pastor Alina was a flight attendant and had a passion for skydiving until she became disabled about 10 years ago. She has an autoimmune condition as well as a rare disorder called Erythromelalgia. These keep her confined to her home a majority of the time. She is now a pastor at VR Church and has started a charity giving VR headsets to those in need. She is married to a loving, supportive husband and is blessed to have her VR family. She says she has never known so much love as she does today.
